Mayor proposes council support ‘Taxpayer Protection’ ballot initiative
Citrus Heights Mayor Tim Schaefer proposed the council take up future consideration of a resolution to support the Taxpayer Protection and Government Accountability Act, an initiative that has qualified for the November 2024 ballot. The initiative seeks to require all new taxes passed by the legislature to also be approved by voters and would also require two-thirds voter approval for any new local special tax increases, among other changes. Schaefer’s motion was supported by Vice Mayor Bret Daniels and Councilwoman Jayna Karpinski-Costa, meaning a formal resolution will be considered during the council’s Oct. 26 meeting.
