Supplemental Transaction & Use Tax
Eureka voters approved Measure "O" on November 2, 2010 which was a 1/2 cent Transactions and Use Tax for General Fund services.  Since the passage of Measure "O", the City of Eureka has relied on this locally-controlled revenue source to fund essential local municipal services.  The Eureka City Council received a report on Measure "O" funds in January 2014, followed by an annual report from the Finance Advisory Committee chair on March 4, 2014.  Supplemental Transaction & Use Tax information can be obtained by clicking here:  2010 TUT Measure
