Measure H/Community Enhancement Fund Citizen Oversight Board
In November 2014, Rancho Cordova voters approved Measure H, a 1/2–cent sales tax measure, which generates approximately $7-$8 million of annual revenue for the City general fund. The ballot measure approved by the voters allows for, but does not require, a citizen oversight board for Measure H revenues. The City Council desired that a Community Enhancement Fund Citizen Oversight Board be established to provide a review and audit of how tax revenues from Measure H are spent by the City and provide feedback. On May 14, 2018, the members of the Measure H/Community Enhancement Fund Citizen Oversight Board took their oath of office.
