West Sacramento Sales Tax, Measure V (November 2008)
Measure V authorized the city to continue to levy one-fourth cent of an existing one-half cent sales tax through March 31, 2033. This replaced a one-fourth cent that expires on March 31, 2013.
The tax generates about $1,000,000 a year for the city.
On the same ballot was Measure U, an advisory measure, asking voters what they'd like to see the tax proceeds used for--particularly asking if they'd like the money to go to a streetcar system.
- These election results are from the Yolo County elections office.
The question on the ballot:
|Measure V: "Shall the City of West Sacramento continue one-fourth cent of the existing one-half cent sales tax for general government purposes including but not limited to community facilities and programs until March 31, 2033 to replace the one-fourth cent set to expire on March 31, 2013?"|
