Measure E Passed – Historic Vote Funds Home Run
By a 65% margin, West Sacramento voters approved Measure E, providing a 0.25 increase in sales tax to fund general city services including the West Sacramento Home Run initiative. Because a quarter of a cent sales tax at the state level expired, it keeps Measure E cost neutral. Measure E keeps the City’s sales tax the same but brings more of the dollars home to West Sacramento so that the City can invest in sustaining the gains in the City.
In addition to the West Sacramento Home Run, Measure E funds will also support better roads, new trails, reduce homelessness and its impacts and improve internet access and civic technology. Measure E will raise $3.3 million annually on an ongoing basis and has no expiration.
