LABEL
RECOMMENDED ACTION:
Recommendation

Body
DISCUSSION:
At the General Election held on November 6, 2012, the voters of Napa County approved a 1/2-cent sales tax increase known as Measure T, the Napa Countywide Road Maintenance Act of 2012.

Measure T is intended to supplement, not supplant or replace, the City's existing local general fund revenues being used for transportation infrastructure maintenance.
