Supervisors lobby for tax measures

  Plumas County voters will decide whether they want to pay more sales tax and charge tourists a higher bed tax to bring additional revenue to the county’s general fund when they cast their ballots in the Nov. 6 election.

  The Board of Supervisors put both Measure C and Measure D on the ballot in an effort to raise more revenue for the county. Both are short-term taxes, due to go into effect Jan. 1, 2013, and be automatically repealed Jan. 1, 2017.
