Adopt a resolution certifying Measure T Maintenance of Effort for Fiscal Years 2021 through 2023, and determining that the actions authorized by this resolution are exempt from CEQA.

At the General Election held on November 6, 2012, the voters of Napa County approved a 1/2-cent sales tax increase known as Measure T, the Napa Countywide Road Maintenance Act of 2012.

Measure T is intended to supplement, not supplant or replace, the City's existing local general fund revenues being used for transportation infrastructure maintenance.
