Hayward City Council
February 25, 2014
Library and Community Services Director Sean Reinhart gave a presentation City programs implemented to increase local food production. Discussion followed to consider changing permit system for backyard chicken keeping and allowing beekeeping in urban areas.
An update on a potential revenue measure was discussed, and the City is proposing to include a sales tax measure on the November ballot to increase sales tax in Hayward by one half percent for 20 years. Information was presented about a survey of Hayward resident support for the potential revenue measure and how to allocate funding.
Approval of the Alameda County Transit Expenditure Plan followed along with a request to place a measure to extend the existing transportation sales tax on the Nov. 4 ballot. This will provide funding for affordable transportation in Alameda County, including $190 billion for Hayward over 30 years from 2015-2045.
