In November 2018, Placentia voters overwhelmingly approved Measure U, a 1% sales tax increase to help fund the cost of much needed infrastructure repairs and maintenance as well as public safety and other critical services. Measure U sales tax increase began collection on April 1, 2019. For the first time in many years, the City will be able to fund much needed road and infrastructure repairs. The City Council has allocated a total of $3.2 million in Measure U, SB 1 Gas Tax and Measure M proceeds to continue funding street repairs and maintenance for Fiscal Year 2019-2020.
