SOURCE OF FUNDING                     

General Fund - Measure Z (889)



Fiscal Year 2021-22 Measure Z Allocations

The Citizens’ Advisory Committee on Measure Z Expenditures is tasked with receiving public input and recommending projects, programs or activities to be funded by your Board. In total, 30 applications totaling $7,308,985 were received from various county departments and outside agencies. The committee held three meetings to receive public input, solicit additional information from the applicants, and to discuss the various proposals. The committee reviewed and considered all of the qualifying applications by merit with a “yes” or “no” vote; then prioritized those with a majority “yes” vote, 23 in total, into level one, two or three, with level one being of the highest priority. The committee then further refined the list by prioritizing applications with equal scores. Through this ranking process, the committee developed a prioritized list for your Board's consideration. The list begins with the highest priority applications, allowing for the Board to make additional allocations from the list should additional funding become available at first quarter and mid-year. The committee’s letter of recommendation containing the prioritized list is included as Attachment I for your Board’s consideration.


The committee’s letter to your Board is included as Attachment 1 and an itemized list of all applications, including where the committee ranked each is included as Attachment 1.1. Copies of the applications are included as Attachment 2 (Nos. 2.1 through 2.30). In addition, all letters of support for various funding applications are contained in Attachment 3.


There is an estimated $12,515,504 in revenue available for allocation in FY 2021-22, with $8 million estimated for ongoing expenditures and $4,513,101 available for allocation at your Board’s discretion. Staff recommend that your Board review the committee’s list of recommendations and the funding applications and provide direction on which Measure Z requests will receive funding in FY 2021-22. The Citizens’ Advisory Committee’s list ranks the 23 funding applications, totaling $6,401,135.66. It should be noted that the District Attorney and Department of Health & Human Service’s Elder and Vulnerable Adult Services Team application (Attachment 2.1) was originally submitted for $222,893.98, however the vast majority of these are staffing costs that have been approved for Measure Z funding in prior years. As such, the staffing for this application have already been included in FY 21-22 and now the departments are only requesting $8,000 for training costs.


This agenda item requires that your Board select which applications will receive funding in the upcoming fiscal year. Staff recommend that your Board utilize the priority level established by the committee to make this selection.



There is an estimated $12,515,504 in revenue available for allocation in FY 2021-22, with $8 million estimated for ongoing expenditures and $4,513,101 available for allocation at your Board’s discretion. The current prioritized list of recommendations totals $4,503,663, leaving $9,438 to allocate at your Board’s discretion or roll over for use at a later date.


As the long-term economic impacts of the cannabis industry and COVID-19 pandemic on tax dollars remain unknown, staff will continue to monitor Measure Z revenues and provide your Board with updated projections annually.



This action supports your Board’s Strategic Framework by creating opportunities for improved safety and health , protecting vulnerable populations, and enforcing laws and regulations to protect residents.
