Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown wants to ask voters to approve a new sales tax in November. The proposal for a one-half percent sales tax went before the Board of Supervisors today. The money generated from the tax would go toward building a new 304-bed jail in Santa Maria and to expand the cramped main county jail in Goleta. The tax will also provide funding for crime prevention programs and enhance law enforcement and fire protection services. The board voted to continue review of the proposal at its July 6th meeting.
