Online Survey: City Seeking the Public’s Input on Proposed Tax Increase

Tuesday, January 11th, 2022

The City of Susanville is using an online survey to gather input from city residents about placing a general tax measure on the June 2022 ballot, and they want to hear from you. Your input is valuable as city administration and the City Council focus on prioritizing essential services, while considering the need to cut some services if a measure doesn’t come to fruition.

According to the city, the tax measure is needed, “due to past and projected budget shortfalls in its general fund.”

“The tax measure will be accompanied by an advisory measure that will provide advice to the Susanville City Council regarding how to spend the tax revenue if the ballot measure passes.”

“Seventy-six percent of the city’s general fund is currently spent on police and fire services, which are essential to our community’s safety and economic prosperity, therefore if additional revenues cannot be identified the city will be facing some tough decisions regarding the need to reduce police and fire services and personnel.”

A local sales tax measure, according to city officials, is the quickest way to solve the city’s revenue problems.

City Administration would love to hear your thoughts. To take the survey click here and follow the link.
