Please note, you’re starting with additional revenue for the Sheriff’s Office! On November 6th County residents approved Measure 1A which increases the County Sales & Use Tax rate from 1% to 1.23%, raising an estimated $17 million in 2013. Measure 1A requires the new monies be spent on the urgent public safety needs of the Sheriff’s Office, specifically within law enforcement, criminal justice and emergency response. Within these limitations, decide how you would spend the new revenue!
