Background: Measure E was passed in April 2018 by a vote of 69% in favor (2/3 required). It levies a parcel tax on the citizens of PVE for a period of 9 years, and replaces an earlier “Fire Tax” that expired in 2017. This tax will generate approximately $5 million in revenue per year which can only be spent on the PVE Police Department (PVE PD). Therefore, it became a referendum on retaining the PVE PD and there was much discussion about exploring the option of outsourcing to the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department (LASD). All current City Councilmembers supported the Measure. For more information, click here.
