Yakima County Commissioners Approved Measure For Primary Ballot

The Yakima County Commissioners Tuesday approved a measure for the primary ballot August 7th. The measure calls for a tenth of a cent sales tax increase that would raise 2.8 million dollars a year. The money would pay for increased security measures at the county jail, cover current expenses and pay for 515 million dollars in annual bond repayment costs. County Commissioner Mike Leita says if voters reject the tax the money will have to come from the county road fund and while the commissioners hope to avoid it. The tax could be on the books for the next 10 years to cover all the expenses.
