1.5 cent sales tax hike on agenda

WESTMINSTER CITY COUNCIL (OC Tribune photo).

The placement of a measure to extend a 1 percent sales tax increase approved by voters in 2016 and increase it to 1.5 percent will go before a special meeting of the Westminster City Council on Monday.

Meeting through a Zoom “web conference,” the council will convene at 1 p.m. for the purpose of putting the matter before the electorate on the Nov. 3 ballot.

The proposed transaction and use tax is termed “Westminster Emergency Relief, Recovery, Local Services,” and – unlike the 2016 measure – wouldn’t expire until “ended by voters.”

  1. Tax and spend Republicans. What the city council needs to do is get the businesssz in Little Saigon To pay their fair share of taxes. Period.
