Alhambra : Tax Repeal Petitions OKd

July 31, 1986

An initiative to repeal the city utility tax has qualified for the November ballot, according to City Clerk Dorothy Outwater.

She said the county registrar-recorder's office has verified that petitions circulated by a taxpayers group called All We Can Afford had more than the required 3,479 signatures of registered voters.

The council will have the option at its meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday of either repealing the tax or submitting the measure to voters in the Nov. 4 city election.

The 5% tax applies to electric, gas, water, telephone and cable television bills. The tax raises $2.7 million of the city's $20-million annual budget.
