CHICO, Calif. - On Tuesday, the Chico City Council voted unanimously to move forward with plans to put a proposed 1% sales tax increase on the November 2022 ballot.

City Manager Mark Orme says a 1% increase in general sales taxes would generate between $24 million and $27 million per year.
The extra money would allow the city to bolster public safety and improve roads and parks.

The 7-0 vote starts the process of getting the measure on the ballot by preparing the necessary documents.

The sales tax would require a two-thirds vote to pass.
