Information on Measure HH


August 15, 2016

Dear Neighbor: 

On July 19th, the Fountain Valley City Council voted to place Measure HH -- the Fountain Valley 911 Response/Police-Fire/Essential City Services Measure on the November 2016 ballot.  If enacted by Fountain Valley voters, Measure HH provides our City with funding to maintain vital community services such as police and fire, including keeping both of the current Fountain Valley fire stations open. 

The State of California has taken approximately $100,000,000 of Fountain Valley’s money—causing reductions to the services our residents rely on.  Measure HH was placed on the ballot to provide a reliable source of locally-controlled funding that can’t be taken by Sacramento.  

Measure HH is a temporary local sales tax -- not a tax on your home, business or property.  Sales tax is also not applied to prescription medication or food purchased as groceries.  And out-of-town visitors who come to our City will also be sharing the cost to address the following community, Fire and Police department priorities: 

  • Maintain 911 emergency response, neighborhood patrols and special crime suppression units that fight gangs and drugs
  • Keep both Fountain Valley fire stations open
  • Maintain police cadet recruitment and training programs, and front desk service
  • Maintain school crossing guards/school resource officers
  • Upgrade emergency 911 emergency radios and communication equipment

In addition to Measure HH, several other issues such as State Propositions, legislative and City Council elections will also appear on Fountain Valley’s November 8th ballot.

Thank you, and we will continue to keep the community informed through the Fall on our efforts to maintain your essential services.
