County finance officials say there’s not enough money in the general fund to pay for Sheriff’s services in all of the new developments cropping up. Geoff Davey, the county’s chief financial officer, says the tax would be 300-dollars per single-family home.

"Without this special tax, the people that live in existing unincorporated area communities like Fair Oaks, Carmichael, Southgate area and so forth, they will see their services reduced so that we can afford to provide services to the new areas."

The proposed tax would affect homeowners in new developments like North Vineyard Station in the south area, Vineyard Gap outside of Elk Grove and Elverta Villages in the north area.
