Purpose


The purpose of the committee shall be to serve in an oversight capacity to at least bi-annually review revenues and expenditures and provide a second independent verification that all expenditures are being made as promised to Watsonville.

Overview


This Public Safety Sales Tax Measure will provide a secure, local revenue stream to the City of Watsonville that will be used entirely to provide additional police and fire personnel, update public safety equipment, facilities and services and enhance youth violence prevention programs to protect our community.

Detailed spending plans have been developed so voters can have a clear understanding of how the funds will be spent if the ½ cent sales tax is approved. These Program Guidelines have been established to govern how the money can be spent, to specify the accounting, audit and oversight methods that will be implemented to make certain that the funds are spent according to the voter's direction, and to ensure the public is well-informed of the progress and process.
