SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Sacramento City Council is voting on what to do with $15 million that was given to the Sacramento police and fire departments last year.
The Measure U Community Advisory Committee created a list of recommendations in July on where to allocate money from the 2020-21 fiscal year budget. The recommendations were based on what the community wants to invest in.
The idea of Measure U was to enhance public safety services for the community with a temporary sales tax. Voters in 2018 decided to keep the sales tax and increase it to one cent from half a cent.
If the reallocation of the $15 million is approved, Sacramento residents will get to decide how it is spent on the community.
City Council will vote on the budget proposal on Tuesday.
