MEASURE R

WHAT IS MEASURE R?
Measure R is a one percent (1%) local sales tax approved by voters of the unincorporated area of Del Norte County on November 3, 2020. This 1 percent sales tax took effect on April 1, 2021, increasing Del Norte County's sales tax rate from 7.25 percent to 8.25 percent. 100% of the revenue generated by this measure goes to the County of Del Norte. Measure R funds support and maintain essential services and infrastructure, such as law enforcement, emergency dispatch, disaster response services, code enforcement, animal services, veteran services, planning and capital improvements vital to a thriving community. 
FISCAL TRANSPARENCY
Measure R revenue and expenditures are accounted for in a separate budget unit.  The Measure R budget as well as up-to-date revenue and expenditure information are clear and easily accessible to the public through the County's Budget Inquiry website 24-hours a day, 7-days a week via the links below.
