In November 2004, Los Banos voters enacted the Los Banos Police, fire, Public Safety/911 Special transaction (sales) and use Tax (Measure P for 911)
The purpose of this Special Tax (Measure P) provides additional funding for public safety personnel, supplies, and service, capital outlay items, equipment, facilities and technology improvements over the term of the tax.
Measure P is equally split into two funds, one for the Police Department and the other for the Fire Department.
Measure P has a 20-year expenditure plan in place that outlines funding for public safety infrastructure and personnel.
Approval of Measure P required the City Council to establish a Citizens Oversite Committee.
The Committee shall consist of seven (7) members. The Police and Fire Chiefs shall together nominate each committee member. Nominees shall be appointed by motion of the City Council by majority vote. Members shall be registered voters within the City of Los Banos and shall serve a term of three years.
The purpose of the Committee is to review, the revenues and expenditures generated and spent under the funds from the ½ cent sales tax adopted by Measure P and provide findings to the City Council for approval, in the form of two semi-annual reports, one report (including fourth quarter information).
The Committee shall meet semi-annually or as often as it deems necessary to accomplish the objectives of Measure P.
For questions regarding the Measure P Committee, please call the Los Banos Fire Department at 209-827-7025 or the Los Banos Police Department at (209) 827-7070.
