BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — Bakersfield’s Citizen’s Oversight Committee for Measure N is set to hold a special meeting on Tuesday to discuss ways the tax’s revenues should be spent.

The measure, which passed in 2018, is a 1 cent sales tax that provides about $58 million annually to the City of Bakersfield to address priorities such as public safety, homelessness and economic development.

Funds generated from Measure N have been contested throughout the year, with clashes between the city and several organizations differing on how the money should be spent.

The meeting takes place today at 11 a.m. You can view it online at
