Leveraging Measure B
We're pleased to debut our 2013 edition of Our Laws_Your Life series with more news about how the city of Vallejo is leveraging Measure B funds. We told you last year that the Council had apportioned $3.2 million of the approximately $9.8 million dollars it receives yearly in Measure B tax money for the PB Initiative. (Measure B funds are used to resolve both Vallejo resident and City Council identified issues. It is a one percent sales tax that residents approved in 2011).
This Thursday January 17, 2013 the Vallejo City Attorney’s department is kicking off a Neighborhood Law Program (NLP) with a potluck in the Joseph Room at the JFK Library at 4 PM.
The press release we received earlier this week says that the NLP is a two year pilot project, funded by Measure B.. NLP lawyers will work with residents, community organizations the Vallejo Police Department and the Code Enforcement division to "strategize solutions to abate the city’s most unfavorable nuisances and improve the quality of life in Vallejo."
Refreshments will be provided.
