Oxnard Voters Decide Fate Of Multiple Ballot Measures

Voters in one South Coast community faced a slew of issues ranging from whether to raise the city’s sales tax to how government agencies conduct meetings.

Oxnard voter approved Measure E, a 1.5% percent sales tax hike to beef up public safety and social service programs.  

\They okayed Measure M, which sets more guidelines for legislative bodies like the City Council over how they conduct business.

Voters rejected Measure L, which would give the City Treasurer more control over the city’s budget, and take away some control from the City Manager.

And, Oxnard’s Measures F and N are still too close to call.  Measure F is a proposal to streamline the city’s development process. Measure N is a plan to shut down a tax for street repairs if certain thresholds aren’t met.
