MEASURE J (Information Only)

For the 2021-2022 County budget, there will be a Measure J Spending Recommendations Process where community residents and stakeholders will be engaged to share their ideas, priorities, and recommendations for the Measure J funding in this upcoming County budget.

The Community Engagement Process will take place between February 2021-March 2021 so that the community wisdom can be included in the County Budget process that begins April 2021.
