A City of Rohnert Park Sales Tax, Measure A ballot question was on the November 5, 2013, election ballot for voters in the city of Rohnert Park in Sonoma County, which is in California. It was approved.

Because Measure A was approved, the previous sales tax rate of 9.5% was continued. If Measure A had not been approved, the sales tax rate would have been reduced to the 9% rate that was in place prior to 2010.[1]

In 2010 voters approved a 1/2% sales tax in Measure E. This tax was set to expire in 2015. Since Measure A was approved, the 1/2% sales tax would continue indefinitely unless the city council members unanimously vote to end it.[1]
