Information on Measure HH, Essential City Services
Measure HH Update, March 2021
On November 8, 2016 the residents of Fountain Valley approved Measure HH, a one-percent transactions and use (i.e. “sales”) tax. The use of Measure HH is guided by the City’s Responsible Spending Pledge and the 20-Year Financial Plan, where the goal is to pay off all debt and to have a balanced operating budget in 2037 when Measure HH sunsets. Accountability and transparency is built into the process. For example, the Measure HH – Essential City Services Oversight Advisory Committee (“Oversight Committee”) generally meets four (4) times a year to ensure that Measure HH funds are spent as promised. In addition, Measure HH revenues and expenses are audited annually by an independent certified public accounting firm.
