MEASURE "U" - Hemet Public Safety and City Services Measure
On July 26, 2016, the Hemet City Council voted to place the City of Hemet Public Safety and City Services Measure on the November 2016 ballot.   

If approved by the voters, Measure U will provide LOCAL funds to enhance Hemet Police and Fire and 911 emergency response and provide other vital services that make Hemet a desirable place to live, work and do business.

Increasingly, the State has shifted responsibility for many programs to cities like Hemet, while taking funding away at the same time. In the last five years alone, Sacramento has taken millions from the City. Funds generated by Measure U will be spent entirely on local public safety and essential services that benefit our community and that by law cannot be taken away by State government.

Measure U includes strict accountability provisions, including annual independent financial audits, public review of expenditures, and ensures that all funds remain in Hemet and cannot be taken by Sacramento. These fiscal safeguards ensure local funds continue to be used efficiently, effectively and as promised.
