SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. – If you live in Shasta County, you’ll be voting on Measure A in the upcoming primary on March 3.

Measure A means more money would go towards public safety.

Funds collected from the new tax would go to three areas of public safety. One, increasing police staffing like more police officers, deputies, and emergency staff. Two, it would provide funding for county jail facilities, meaning more jail bed space and rehabilitation programs.

This would also allow the district attorney’s office to hire more prosecutors.

Shasta County estimates that the 1% sales tax would bring in about $31 million a year.

Measure A will be voted on March 3, 2020, it will need a two-thirds vote to actually pass.
