Does the measure include fiscal accountability requirements?

Yes, the City is committed to transparency and responsible fiscal stewardship.  All money raised by the measure would stay local to fund services, programs, and projects here in La Palma. By law, no funds could be taken by the State. Annual independent audits of expenditures would also be required. These fiscal safeguards would help ensure transparency and that all funds are locally controlled.
