At its July 5 meeting, the City Council voted to place the Utility Modernization Act on the November ballot. This measure maintains funding for critical city services. This is an important decision for the city of Alameda, so here are the answers to some key questions voters should consider.
It is common for municipal utilities to help pay for essential city services such as public safety, roads, parks and libraries. An annual payment from Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) to the city has taken place for more than 100 years, and that revenue is part of the city’s budget. This measure asks voters to confirm this existing payment. It will not increase electric bills, as it is already factored into the rate structure.
