[PASO ROBLES, CA – October 4, 2023] – The City of Paso Robles today released a short video detailing the significant benefits of Measure E-12 and how it has played a crucial role in funding street repairs throughout the community. The video is available here: https://youtu.be/wvCxXHHv2hg and on City social media platforms. 

In 2012, the voters of Paso Robles approved Measure E-12, a half-cent supplemental sales tax that generates approximately $5 to $7 million annually. Although E-12 is a general tax (meaning it can legally be used for a general government purpose), the Council, through resolution,  committed to funding the City’s street repair, maintenance, and rehabilitation projects and fund expenditures are overseen by the resident-led Supplemental Sales Tax Oversight Committee

"This video is an opportunity for our residents to see their tax dollars at work,” said Mayor John Hamon. “We are committed to maintaining the highest standards of transparency and accountability when it comes to Measure E-12 funds, and this video showcases that commitment. We continue to work to get more streets repaired with E-12 funds."

$52 million has been generated by Measure E-12 since it was put in place, with $45.6 million expended directly on roads. An additional $24 million is budgeted for additional road maintenance work to be completed in the near future.  

"Measure E-12 has been a game-changer for Paso Robles,” Said City Manager Ty Lewis. “Our community came together to support this measure, and we are reaping the benefits with improved roads that make our city safer and more enjoyable for everyone. The video shares a portion of the work we’ve been able to achieve since 2012 thanks to Measure E-12."

On February 4, 2020, City Council approved the Updated Six-Year Street Maintenance and Repair Plan which outlines the specific street segments anticipated to be constructed over the remaining four years of the Measure E-12 SST (the measure has an automatic expiration date of March 31, 2025, unless voters choose to renew the measure).
