Pasadena wants voters to choose whether they want a sales tax hike or a cut in city services
The council directed staff to gather information and begin public outreach before bringing the idea back for a final vote. To make the November ballot, the City council would have to approve the measure no later than July 23.  The proposal would raise the city’s sales tax from 9.5% to 10.25%.

Contact all City Council members to be fiscally responsible without a tax
Please contact all City Council members to be fiscally responsible by creating pension reform.  It is the pensions that are draining our city funds.  Also, request them to cut non-essential services in the community.  If the sales tax increase initiative gets on the ballet, it will get overwhelming support from the cash-strapped Pasadena schools because the council is proposing to give 20% of the revenue to them.  Again to help them with their out-of-control teacher pensions.

Pasadena Recycled Water Program
This project started in 2011 and will be completed by 2019 providing recycled water to almost all public sites in Pasadena and Altadena. In 1993 the Pasadena City Council authorized the purchase of 6,000 acre-feet of recycled water per year from the Los Angeles/Glendale Water Reclamation Plant, but no recycled water has yet come to Pasadena. Despite Pasadena’s $6.3 million financial commitment, Pasadena has not moved ahead on building the distribution system from Scholl Canyon through West Pasadena due to financial concerns.
