VICTORVILLE – Victorville is accepting applications from representatives in the clergy, non-profit social services and local major retail industry for vacancies on the Measure P oversight committee. Measure P – a one-cent sales tax that took effect on April 1, 2021, allows the city to increase safety for Victorville’s growing population and expand essential services like police, fire, code compliance, animal care and control, library, and homelessness and housing.

At the November 3, 2020 election, Measure P was approved. This enacted a 1% General Transaction and Use Tax. Since it is a local sales tax, 100% of the revenue generated goes to the city – a projected $29.51 million for 2022-23.

Measure Funding Allocations

So far Measure P funding allocations include:

  • Five Deputy Sheriffs, five Sheriff’s Service Specialists and one Crime Analyst added in 2021 – 2022;
  • Fire Station 315 opened on July 3, 2021; 
  • Matching funds for the construction of the Wellness Center;
  • Expanded Animal Control operations to seven days a week to increase public services and response availability related to public animal related nuisances and hazards to residents and animals;
  • Reducing community blight;
  • Purchasing new books, furniture, and multimedia supplies for the library;
  • Replastering the Doris Davies Pool;
  • Resurfacing the gymnasium floor at Hook Community Center.

The oversight committee ensures that proposed expenditures conform to Measure P prior to submission to city council for consideration. 

The committee consists of seven members, who currently have a leadership role in the local major retail industry, local chamber of commerce, youth/recreation, clergy, non-profit social services provider, education and senior community. 

Individuals serving in an executive capacity or a board member capacity are eligible leaders. Victorville staff members are not eligible for the role. Applicants must also a Victorville residency for a minimum of two years.
