Rancho Cordova will hold town hall meetings over the next three months to solicit input about how to spend revenue from a sales tax increase approved by voters last year.
In addition, the city is accepting applications for community improvement projects funded by the Measure H sales tax.
The sales tax hike of a half-cent on the dollar will be collected starting April 1 and is expected to raise just more than $1 million in the fiscal year ending July 1. It is expected to raise $7 million in the next fiscal year, the period for which the city wants public input.
The city is accepting applications for community-led projects that improve quality of life, arts and culture, children’s well-being and other areas. For more information, call City Hall at (916) 851-8700.
