Measure P - Sales Tax Initiative

Compton Mayor Aja Brown and the City Council voted to adopt a resolution consolidating a Special Municipal Election with the already scheduled Los Angeles County primary election on June 7, 2016. The Council adopted a resolution by a 5-0 vote to put the Vital City Services and Neighborhood Protection Measure on the ballot for voters to decide upon.

In June, Compton voters will be asked to approve the Vital City Services and Neighborhood Protection Measure, a proposed ordinance to add a one percent sales tax to fund repairing local streets, sidewalks and enhancing pedestrian street lighting. Additionally, the measure would provide funding for more public safety personnel including sheriffs, firefighters and paramedics, expand youth job training, gang and drug prevention programs, economic development, improve local parks and stabilize basic services throughout the City. The estimated annual revenue to the City of Compton if passed by voters will generate over $7 million annually and would require citizens’ oversight.
