Measure P

  16 posts

Measure P is a seven-eighths-cent sales tax increase that was passed by Vallejo voters in November 2022. Measure P -- which received 55% approval -- is expected to generate $18 million annually for the city’s general fund. City officials said the new funding will be used to address blight, illegal dumping, homelessness, roads, provide fire and police protection, and keep public spaces clean. Vallejo's new sales tax is the highest in Solano County at 9.25%.
