Of the 28 Alameda County measures on the Nov. 6 ballot, only five pertain to the City of Alameda. Measure F and Measure K pertain narrowly to the city. They deal with raising the sales tax and with inscribing the city’s rent ordinance into the City Charter, respectively.
Measure F: Alameda Sales Tax
A “yes” vote favors authorizing the city to enact a 0.5 percent general sales tax with no expiration date. This would raise raising the total sales tax from 9.25 percent to 9.75 percent.
