Up to four city measures could be decided by voters in the Nov. 5 election, should City Council decide to refer them to the ballot (a decision is expected on Aug. 13). They are:

• A request by the city to keep $7 million in 2018 revenues collected above the Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights cap, to be used for “parks, sports and cultural facilities and trail improvements.”

• A proposal to extend the city’s roads tax for five years, from 2021 to 2026, and reduce it from a .62 percent sales tax to .57 percent.

• An ordinance or charter change regarding new rules for conveying park land to private owners. 

• A charter change shifting the election of City Council president and president pro-tem by Council members to a slightly later date.
