Crescent City and Del Norte County are both moving forward with plans to place proposed sales tax increases on the Nov. 3 general election ballot.
On Wednesday, the Crescent City Council voted unanimously to have staff develop language for a one cent general sales tax that would apply within the city limits only.
In response, the Del Norte County Board of Supervisors voted 4-1 to have county staff develop a separate one cent general sales tax for the unincorporated areas of the county.
The county’s sales tax measure would go to fund critical services, including, disaster preparation, emergency response, street work and other general services.
The increased sales tax in the unincorporated area would help the county fund critical services including disaster preparation, emergency response, street work and other general services.
The plans for $1.2 million generate by the sales tax are extensive. Both the city’s and county’s measures need to be submitted to the Del Norte County Elections Office by Aug. 6 to appear on the November ballot.
