Measure K Oversight Committee
Measure K, a half-cent transactions & use tax (or sales tax) for 20 years, was approved by Pleasant Hill voters at the November 8, 2016 election. The measure took effect April 1, 2017.
The money from Measure K will be used to build a new library and make infrastructure improvements throughout the city including streets resurfacing, storm drain and sidewalk improvements and additional bike and pedestrian paths. For more information see the Measure K webpage. The measure requires that an oversight committee be established to ensure that voter-approved funds are spent appropriately.
On February 6, 2017, the City Council adopted Resolution No. 16-17 establishing the TRANSACTIONS AND USE TAX OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE (known as the Measure K Oversight Committee) and its bylaws.
The Measure K Oversight Committee (Committee) will review semi-annual revenue and expenditure reports, and other relevant reports and information regarding the tax. The Committee will provide an annual report to the City Council on whether revenues were expended efficiently and effectively, and make recommendations if needed.
