South Pasadena City Council members made the decision last week to not immediately enact an ordinance that would repeal the cityâ€™s utility users tax (UUT).
The UUT, according to South Pasadena City Manager Sergio Gonzalez, is the cityâ€™s second largest revenue source, making up $3.7 million of the cityâ€™s $24 million budget.
â€œThe City Council felt that making that decision now is not in the best interest of the city,â€ explained Gonzalez.
Council members opted to delay action on whether to place the measure on the November ballot and requested the city manager to continue to educate the council and residents on the impacts of losing the UUT.
