Prop 423 Election Results


Voters approved Proposition 423, the Permanent Base Adjustment, by a margin of about 72 to 28 percent, according to unofficial returns from Tuesday’s election.

The Permanent Base Adjustment provides flexibility to the locally elected city council to set its budget each year based on local needs instead of state imposed numbers. The state imposed formula was developed shortly after the city incorporated, had a population of less than 10,000, and had very few services. Operating under that formula would result in a large reduction in the current level of services that the city provides.

The city, now with four times the population, has grown to include many more services and continues to meets the needs of the developing community.

Under the Permanent Base Adjustment, the city will now budget according to current and predicted revenues and service demands. The passage of the proposition will not affect taxes and the city will continue operating under a balanced budget, as mandated by state law.

The permanent adjustment negates the need for a “Home Rule” election every four years. Voters had passed Home Rule since 1985.

Unofficial returns as of early Wednesday showed 2,555 (72.3 percent) voted in favor of Permanent Base Adjustment and 981 (27.7 percent) against. The election is not certified until after the official canvass.
