Measure V, a half-cent sales tax that was approved by voters in 2012, expires on March 31, 2023. This tax is paid by visitors and community members and generates about $2.1 million each year for vital City services and programs including public safety, City infrastructure (e.g. street maintenance) and facilities, and economic development.
Since Measure V sunsets in 2023, the half-cent sales tax is up for vote in the Nov. 3, 2020, General Election. Now named Measure T, this measure would extend the half-cent sales tax until voters decide to end it.
The full text of the Measure T ballot measure can be found on the Sonoma County Registrar of Voters Office website.
