The in­tent of the mea­sure is to raise funds for pub­lic safety func­tions through­out the county and to help with eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment. The in­crease would be for 10 years and is es­ti­mated to gen­er­ate ap­prox­i­mately $4.3 mil­lion an­nu­ally.

With the ma­jor­ity of precincts re­port­ing, those in fa­vor of Mea­sure K out­num­bered those against. The yes vote had re­ceived 52 per­cent of the vote. How­ever, it was still close with less than 200 votes sep­a­rat­ing the two.

Mea­sure J – the Marysville Joint Uni­fied School Dis­trict Bond Mea­sure – was in­tended to help the school dis­trict re­pair and im­prove its ag­ing in­fra­struc­ture. If ap­proved, it would al­low the dis­trict to is­sue $74 mil­lion in bonds to carry out the work.

With 15 of 26 precincts re­port­ing, Mea­sure J looked to be headed for de­feat with a no vote re­ceiv­ing 53 per­cent of the tally.
