Dixon has lost millions over the years due to unfunded state mandates, and cumbersome regulations, impacting long term stability and services residents expect and deserve. Measure D would generate local funding to address the community’s essential service priorities. No Measure D funding could be taken by the state.
As fire danger and drought become more severe, Measure D could help ensure Dixon is prepared for any disaster including equipping our firefighters with the equipment, staffing, and tools they need to protect and save lives and property.
Public safety is always a top priority for the City and community. Measure D could maintain a high-level of police services, including rapid 911 emergency response, neighborhood patrols, anti-drug and anti-gang programs, and crime prevention and investigation.
The City maintains many miles of roads, many of which are rated as only “fair” by independent experts. Measure D could address streets that are in disrepair to bring them up to standard and ensure regular street maintenance and pothole repair are performed to keep our streets safe and improve quality of life in a fiscally responsible manner before repairs and upgrades become more expensive to fix.
Measure D is a one cent locally controlled sales tax that if enacted, generates local funding that cannot be taken by the state. The Measure is not a tax on homes or property, and is not applied to rent, utilities, food purchased as groceries, or prescription medicine. Visitors will also pay their fair share when they visit Dixon and use the services we all rely on.
By law, Measure D requires strict accountability provisions, including independent citizen oversight with public disclosure of all spending, mandatory financial audits, and public reports to the community.
