SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) --People living in San Jose will likely decide on a quarter-cent sales tax increase this November.
City officials are recommending the tax hike and San Jose City Council members are set to make a final decision during their meeting on Tuesday.
Officials must decide on whether to seek voter approval for a general tax measure, which would pass with a simple majority vote, or one earmarked for bolstering the city's depleted police and fire departments, which would require two-thirds approval.
The city says the increase would raise $34 million a year over its suggested 9-year span.
