Measure I


In November 2012, La Mirada voters approved Measure I, a one percent transactions and use tax, that is estimated to generate some $20-$25 million in new revenues for infrastructure repairs over the next five years. The tax became effective on April 1, 2013.

Measure I was supported by 66.63 percent of La Mirada residents voting in the November 6 election. The measure was placed on the ballot by the City Council after a 29-member Citizens Task Force on City Finances and Operations recommended the action due to the cumulative impacts of the national recession, ongoing “takes” of local revenues by the State, and the elimination of redevelopment agencies in California.

Measure I spending will focus on repairing streets, storm drains and other infrastructure as recommended by the Citizens Task Force. A recent engineering review of La Mirada’s infrastructure identified more than $67 million in infrastructure needs. Measure I requires annual independent audits and citizens’ oversight of how tax revenues were spent.
