New Measure N Tax Qualifies for Ballot

The Grass Valley City Council is expected to schedule a special election at its meeting tonight–placing a measure on the June ballot that will effectively cancel the half-cent sales tax approved by voters as Measure N, and replace it with a full-cent sales tax. The money would be used, similiarly to the current measure, to fund police officers and firefighters, but also to add funding to things the community wants like more road repairs and upkeep of parks.
