Measure B - City of Hercules Sales Tax Extension
How the ballot reads: To maintain Hercules' financial stability; enhance fiscal accountability; prevent cuts to police services/crime prevention programs, street/pothole repair, youth/senior programs, and other essential City services; and maintain the number of police officers patrolling neighborhood streets and the local Hercules Police Department, shall the City of Hercules continue its existing, voter-approved one-half cent sales tax, with citizens' oversight, audits, and funding that cannot be taken by Sacramento, and without increasing the current tax rate?
