Citrus Heights Voters Do Not Adopt Measure M

Sacramento County logo

Sacramento County election results have been finalized and Citrus Heights voters opted not to approve Measure M. If adopted, Measure M would have enacted a local one-cent sales tax increase to generate revenue to fund City services and community priorities, with a resident Oversight Committee and third-party financial audits.

“As always, City officials and staff take direction from our residents,” said City Manager Chris Boyd. “City Council voted to place Measure M on the ballot to let our community make this important decision and the voters have shared their voice. We are grateful to the residents who participated in this unique election, and our dedicated staff will continue to work closely with the community as important budget decisions are considered. The City’s extensive survey efforts demonstrated that our community prioritizes services like crime investigation and prevention, school safety and security, street maintenance and pothole repair, homelessness reduction programs, and local business and jobs support. As we head into strategic planning and budget updates, we will look to balance and align with what our community prioritizes.”

The City’s in-depth strategic planning process culminates in the City Council setting three-year goals which provide guidance for all City efforts. After the three-year goals are set, City staff establish strategic objectives to serve as benchmarks every six months. Throughout the pandemic, City efforts have remained aligned with strategic goals.
