The City has launched a new website for information about Measure C funded projects. Measure C, approved by Santa Barbara voters in 2017, provides a one-cent general purpose local sales tax to address deferred maintenance and repair and upgrade critical infrastructure. Visit the website to get updates and view a Measure C Story Map showing projects that are approved or currently in progress, including pavement maintenance, the Police Station, and the Cabrillo Pavilion.

I guess this is unavoidable, having City staff (or worse, a consultant) spend time creating a website to publicize the fact that our tax money is being used wisely and for practical things. Because I guess our default assumption is that it isn't . It just makes everything a little more expensive, and all of a sudden you need 1.5M to build a roundabout or something relatively simple because of this requirement and that requirement and the need to publicize it. It's an interesting system that we having going.

Why was there no money left in the city budget for routine and scheduled maintenance and improvement to the city infrastructure? Measure C simply masks the city's continued pension short-fall and continued increases in city employee perks and benefits. What kind of a city runs on a zero budget for infrastructure that requires taxing the residents more and more to provide these very basic obligations. Get a brand new city council in 2019 and 2021 who will come to grips with the city's continued soft over-spending problems, and start investing in the city hardscape infrastructure. Two election cycles and we can turn this around. Pay attention to who you vote for in 2019 and 2018, and who you vote for in the upcoming special election to replace Hart.
