One of the Strategic Initiatives adopted by the Stockton City Council to reduce crime and increase public safety is the Marshall Plan. The Stockton City Council held a Special Meeting and Study Session to discuss the development of the plan on January 31, 2012. The Marshall Plan Committee met throughout 2012 and held a symposium for community leaders on February 8, 2013.
After a series of Town Hall meetings with the community throughout May and June, a proposed funding plan for the Marshall Plan was presented to the City Council during the regularly scheduled Council Meeting on Tuesday, June 25, 2013, Agenda Item 15.02. The Council approved the scheduling of a Public Hearing to fund the Marshall Plan and bankruptcy recovery. Proposed ballot language to place a 3/4 cent sales tax increase for a November 5, 2013 election, which was presented at the July 9, 2013 regularly scheduled City Council Meeting.
Measures A and B were approved by voters on November 5, 2013; the additional sales tax goes into effect April 1, 2014. The City Council took action to approve the appropriation of funding for the first phase of hiring additional police officers on February 25, 2014, Agenda Item 15.1, at the regularly scheduled Council Meeting.
The Marshall Plan Project Report on Public Safety was presented at the April 2, 2013, City Council Meeting. The Council has directed City staff to:
- Facilitate community meetings to discuss the Report recommendations and solicit citizen input,
- Properly budget in Fiscal Year 2013-14 for the continuation of Ceasefire and the Marshall Plan Committee discussions, and
- After receiving community input, the City Manager is to return to Council with final recommendations and a financing plan for implementation that is in coordination with the City's bankruptcy negotiations.
