Board Backs Sonoma County Road Tax

Jul 29, 2014

A quarter-cent sales tax increase to fund road repairs across Sonoma County appeared headed for the November ballot, but a proposal to use 10% of the money for public transit is getting some push-back.

The county-wide road tax could be just one of a number of bonds and tax increases facing local voters in November, from schools, cities and Santa Rosa Junior College. The deadline for adding measures to the ballot is August 8.
