The Town Council determines that the cost to maintain certain municipal services at a level required to provide for the health, safety and general welfare of its residents exceeds the amount of funds and revenues generated from all other sources of income.  The Town Council further determines that the levy of a special municipal services tax on improved real property throughout the town is necessary to maintain an adequate level of municipal services.  It is the sole purpose and intent of this chapter to impose a special tax to maintain 24-hour, seven days per week staffing of the Fairfax Police Station, maintain fire services, provide funding for public works safety projects, and enhance youth and senior programs.  A citizens’ oversight committee was established by the Town Council in 2005 with the passage of Measure F for the purpose of monitoring the use of the special tax revenues in accordance with this section.
