Coming in November to a polling place near you:
Requests that voters approve millions of dollars in local bond measures, millions in sales taxes and a load of other revenue-producing measures, including parcel tax proposals.
"This is the most I've seen in quite a few years," said Brad Buyse, spokesman for the Sacramento County elections office. "It seems like everybody has held off because of the economy, and it seems like the districts and cities are thinking that this is the year to be successful."
It's anybody's guess whether that's right.
In addition to ballot measures in Sacramento County, a school parcel tax is headed to voters in Davis and a park bond measure will go on the ballot for Truckee and the Donner area.
The question is, just how many tax measures can go on a ballot before they start to backfire?
"We haven't crunched the numbers on how many proposals you can put in front of people before they start rejecting them all," said David Kline, spokesman for the California Taxpayers Association.
"But it does seem that with the unemployment we have now and people having to stretch their budget, if you put five to 10 increases in front of them they might approve one or two; but they're going to look at them very closely."
While many ballots may contain only one local tax measure, the measure will be dwarfed by tax measures sought at the state level.
Gov. Jerry Brown is pushing a sales and income tax ballot measure, and civil rights attorney Molly Munger is pushing a rival income tax measure for California's schools.
Here's a look at the Sacramento region's money-raising measures that, so far, are headed for the November ballot in the Sacramento region.
Measure K: Citrus Heights voters will be asked to raise their utility user taxes by 1.75 percent to support law enforcement costs in part to deal with an increase of ex-offenders tied to the state's prison realignment. About half the $2 million raised annually would go for street resurfacing. Five utility bills are affected, but combined the monthly cost should average less than $5, city officials say.
Measure L: Rancho Cordova officials are asking voters to establish a city tax on local card rooms. If approved, the city will tax card rooms' gross gambling revenues at 2 percent starting in January 2014. Each year thereafter, the city will tax the two local casinos at 3 percent on the first $5 million and 4 percent on revenues above $5 million.
Measure N: The San Juan Unified School District is asking district voters to approve a $350 million general obligation bond to improve all district schools, including classrooms, technology infrastructure, science labs and career facilities for job skills and training. It will allow the district to take advantage of state matching funds.
Measure P: The Folsom Cordova Unified School District is asking voters to approve a $68 million bond measure to complete modernization projects for Rancho Cordova schools. The previously approved projects stalled after tax revenues fell.
In the works: The Sacramento City Council moved forward Thursday with a plan to ask voters to approve a half-percentage-point increase in the city sales tax to fund general operations such as police, firefighters and parks. The council plans to finalize the ballot language Tuesday.
School bonds: The Sacramento City Unified School District on Thursday night approved two bond measures for the ballot.
The legal deadline for getting measures on the ballot is Aug. 10, and more measures are likely on the way.
Parcel tax: The Isleton City Council, for example, should decide Wednesday night whether to place a parcel tax on the city ballot to help finance police and fire. The amount of the tax, perhaps around $250, is under discussion.
Measure J: The Truckee Donner Recreation and Park District is asking voters to approve $8.5 million in bonds to build an aquatic center and a performing arts center.
Parcel tax: Trustees of the Davis Joint Unified School District will ask voters in that district to approve a parcel tax in November. The measure would renew an existing tax of $204 per parcel. In addition, if Brown's statewide tax initiative fails, the measure would levy another $242 per parcel, producing $3.5 million to help offset losses in state funds.
