The Canyon Lake Chamber of Commerce invites resident and businesses to an information presentation on the Canyon Lake Utility Users Tax (UUT) on Thursday, Sept. 6, at 6:30 p.m. in the Magnolia Room at the country club. Public Safety and Local Control Continuation Measure S will appear on the Nov. 6 general election ballot.
Measure S asks voters to consider continuing, with no increase in tax rates, the existing voter-approved 3.95 percent UUT. If renewed by voters, revenue from Measure S will continue to require fiscal accountability provisions, including independent annual audits that keep city spending transparent and ensure funds are spent effectively and efficiently. By law, all funds must be spent I Canyon Lake and no money can be taken by Sacramento.
This event will be strictly an information presentation regarding the city’s budget and the UUT as one of the city’s revenue sources. The city can only provide factual information. The city will answer questions after the presentation. The city cannot take a position and will not get into a debate with members of the audience.
The Chamber of Commerce does not take a position on Measure S and is holding this presentation to present information only.
