Correction to Sample Ballot

Press Release posted 3/22/16 – The City of Sierra Madre is hereby providing notice to all voters of a correction to the “Impartial Analysis of Measure UUT” on page 6 of the Sample Ballot for the election on Tuesday, April 12, 2016.

The first bullet, under “Measure UUT WILL” should read:

  • Increase the existing 8% UUT tax to a maximum of 10% on July 1, 2016.

The bullet in the Impartial Analysis of Measure UUT in the sample ballots mailed to all voters mistakenly reads 2015; this date is a typo. The actual ordinance, which can be found on pages 9-10 of the sample ballot states that, if approved, “Effective July 1, 2016, the taxes imposed by this Chapter shall be at the rate of ten (10) percent, unless a lesser rate is established by the city council on or before August 1st of any year.”
