Council votes on marijuana tax
The Sacramento City Council will decide whether to place before voters a 5 percent business operations tax on commercial marijuana cultivation to support programs on behalf of children’s services. Voters would need to grant two-thirds approval at the ballot box before July 1. A city report on the proposal says the city’s current resources are inadequate to meet the needs of children and youths. The open portion of the council meeting starts at 6 p.m. on the first floor of City Hall, 915 I St.
Roosters back on county agenda
The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors will consider an ordinance that would allow roosters on residential property in unincorporated Sacramento County, but only on parcels 10,000 square feet or larger. In July, supervisors approved an interim ban on “crowing fowl” on all residential parcels after some residents made noise complaints. But the board decided in October that it should relax the prohibition, which failed to accommodate residents who live in more rural areas. The item is scheduled for 10:30 a.m., Sacramento County Board Chambers, 700 H St., Sacramento.
Delay in Encina project considered
The San Juan Unified School District board will consider delaying construction of a community center at Encina Preparatory High School in the Arden Arcade area because the district is stretched thin due to work on class-size reduction, a new Sylvan Middle School and other projects. Under the change, the district would delay the Encina project by two years but move forward with a performing arts center at nearby El Camino High School. The board meets in open session at 6:30 p.m., 3738 Walnut Ave., Carmichael.
Folsom gets picture of finances
The Folsom city manger will present the city’s latest financial report during a regular meeting of the City Council. The report will show tax-revenue increases of 3 to 4 percent over the previous fiscal year in property taxes, sales taxes and transient occupancy taxes. The open session begins at 6:30 p.m. in Folsom City Council Chambers, 50 Natoma St.
