Why aren’t my taxes paying for this service?
After the passage of Proposition 13 in 1974, and more recently as part of the state budget crisis, cities experienced a significant drop in revenue, which forced us to create alternate methods of revenue to offset our costs. The actual dollars received from property taxes is minimal. Providing emergency medical services is expensive. To continue providing outstanding services, high costs are associated with life-saving equipment and training. The revenue from this program helps offset some of these costs so that we can include a paramedic unit in each neighborhood.
