Chevron Legal Challenge to Measure T

City Manager Bill Lindsay reported today:


City Attorney Randy Riddle, Finance Director Jim Goins, and I met with Chevron representatives today at their request to discuss Measure T.  They indicated that Chevron will, as the sole plaintiff, file a lawsuit in state court this Thursday seeking a declaratory judgment to invalidate this business license tax measure.  They do not plan to seek an injunction to prevent the City from collecting the taxes under Measure T, and will therefore calculate and pay their tax bill which is due in approximately 6 weeks.


We are planning to provide the City Council with an update concerning this litigation in Closed Session at the March 3rd City Council meeting.  In the meantime, please contact me if you have any questions or comments.
