Measure MC 

Measure MC, a ballot measure for City of Malibu voters only, will appear on the November 8, 2022 General Municipal Election ballot. Measure MC seeks voter approval to authorize a one-half cent (½ ¢) Transactions and Use (sales) Tax.

A “YES vote” approves the City’s proposal.

A “NO vote” rejects the City’s proposal.

The Ballot Question:

"To support such city services as public safety, crime and fire prevention, addressing homelessness, keeping public areas safe and clean, preventing speeding and reckless driving, protecting coastal waters and beaches from pollution, preserving natural areas, supporting local businesses, and other general city services; shall a measure be adopted establishing a 1/2¢ transactions and use (sales) tax providing approximately $3,000,000 annually until ended by voters, requiring public spending disclosures and local control of funds?"

Measure MC would go to the City’s general fund and could be used to:

  • Maintain public safety and emergency services
  • Address homelessness
  • Clean and maintain parks and other public areas
  • Address traffic regulation
  • Maintain coastal waters
  • Maintain and improve natural areas
