Measure B Information - Local Sales Tax Measure to address City Fiscal Emergency
Measure B will be on the March 3, 2020 ballot for Reedley residents to vote either for (Yes) or against (No) a proposed ¾ cent sales tax on taxable items purchased within Reedley city limits to generate dedicated, local funds for public safety, streets maintenance, and parks. Reedley’s General Fund faces a budget deficit that is expected to expand to almost $2 million by 2024. Basic City-funded services such as emergency response services and maintenance of streets and roads may be impacted in the near future if no new, locally controlled funding source is provided.

New Tip Lines for Crime Tips to Police Department

TIP LINE (English): (559) 356-8690
TIP LINE (Spanish): (559) 246-4183
In an effort to strengthen community partnerships and enhance public trust, the Reedley Police Department has implemented two new "TIP Line" numbers for the public to call in tips or specific information regarding criminal activity. These types of calls could be related to ongoing drug activity, gang activity, other criminal related conduct or "quality of life" issues that the public would like to report. These "tips" can now be called in telephonically through two separate phone numbers, one for English speaking citizens and one for Spanish speaking citizens.
