Jefferson: Tax levy measures on Tuesday’s ballot

Measures to increase the sales tax by one-tenth of a penny and to boost the levy rate for Fire District No. 1 in Chimacum are among the items on Tuesday’s primary election ballot in Jefferson County.

Prop. 1 would increase the countywide sales tax from 8.2 percent to 8.3 percent to fund juvenile justice programs.

The one-tenth of one percent increase equals a penny for every $10 in consumers spend on nonfood items.

The sales tax increase would generate $250,000 annually in Jefferson County, and can be used only for jails and juvenile detention.
