[ARCHIVED] All three local ballot items pass

our proactive police-community partnerships to keep Cedar Hill safe."
The creation of the Crime Control and Prevention District in Cedar Hill, will not require a tax increase. It will be funded by reallocating 1/8 of 1% sales tax from the Economic Development Corporation to the Crime Control and Prevention District. It will fund the Police Department's Police And Community Together unit with officers and a sergeant working directly with residents to strengthen neighborhood ties with the department and develop neighborhood watch groups.

Financial data from neighboring communities indicate that the sale of beer and wine for off-premise consumption will provide a small uptick in the city's revenues as sales tax collections reflect additional sales at local stores. New retail outlets may also be attracted to our community. Retail beer and wine sales are governed by the Texas Alcoholic Beverages Commission.

The community registered strong support for CHISD's bond proposal of $45 million to address district-wide safety and security, HVAC and roof replacements, technology infrastructure and equipment upgrades. For more information on the CHISD bond election, visit
