TEHAMA COUNTY, Calif. - Getting voters to approve a tax hike is never an easy thing to accomplish but Tehama County leaders say the passage of Measure G is essential.

Measure G asks voters, county-wide, to approve a one-cent sales tax for a period of 10 years. The board of supervisors hopes it will generate $7.9 million a year to help the county meet its basic funding needs.

In the coming fiscal year alone, the county is projecting a $4 million shortfall just to maintain staffing levels at the sheriff's office, libraries, parks and recreation and all basic county services. Even birth certificates and marriage licenses could be impacted without funding.

In addition, the county needs another nearly $3 million just to cover the expenses of the jail expansion operational costs.

A "yes" vote on Measure G means Tehama County voters approve the one-cent sales tax.

A "no" vote means you reject.
