Measure G is a 1/2-cent local sales tax for our city, which changes the rate in San Bruno to 9.75%. By law, all funds generated by Measure G must stay in and benefit San Bruno and cannot be taken by Sacramento.
Measure G includes strict accountability provisions, including independent citizens oversight, mandatory financial audits, and yearly reports to the community to ensure the funds are spent appropriately.
