Corrections for the Week of May 13 

Budget figures for Measure Y.

The April 22 Full Disclosure, "Measure Y and the Oakland Budget Mess," used out-of-date figures to describe how much Measure Y produces in annual revenues for the City of Oakland. According to Mayor Ron Dellums' 2009-11 budget, Measure Y, which pays for community policing, some fire department services, and several anti-violence programs, is expected to generate about $20 million in annual tax revenues for each of the next two years — not about $12.5 million, as the story stated.
