Eureka Police Officer’s Association and EPD’s Chief Support Measure I
Eureka Police Chief Steve Watson and the Eureka Police Officer’s Association are supporting Measure I, the 1/4 cent sales tax dedicated to repairing and maintaining Eureka’s Streets.
“The City of Eureka’s streets are in a state of increasing disrepair that endangers public safety,” Chief Watson stated. “Broken roads can lead to more traffic accidents and have a deleterious impact on the safety of our motorists and pedestrians.”
Measure proceeds can only be used for repair and maintenance of existing streets and will generate approximately $2.2 million each year, totaling $44 million over the life of the measure.
“The men and women of Eureka Police Officer’s Association support Measure I,” said Terry Liles, EPOA President. “As professionals that utilize Eureka’s roadways numerous times everyday, we know firsthand that the roads need repair and constant maintenance.”
