How much will Measure G cost?

Answer

Measure G is a one percent sales tax, which would raise about $16M per year. This revenue would be dependent on the economy and the amount of goods sold in San Benito County. Measure G will NOT apply to groceries, prescription medicine and certain medical devices. For example, the purchase of a $50 qualified item would add 50 cents to a purchase. Measure G would be paid by everyone in San Benito County including visitors. The City of Hollister is currently 8.25%, the City of San Juan is currently 8%, and Unincorporated County areas are 7.25%. Measure G is a detailed community-built plan based on our most important LOCAL transportation needs, and will qualify us for state and federal matching funds to leverage taxpayer dollars even further.
