Local Ballot Initiatives Passing

Some local ballot initiatives are passing in Lake County after Tuesday’s general election…they include school bond measures for the Middletown Unified School District, and the Upper Lake Unified School District. Lake County voters are supporting Measure K, which is the Cannabis Business Tax Ordinance. If approved, a tax on commercial cannabis businesses will go into effect in the unincorporated county on Jan. 1, 2021. And Measure L would impose a special tax on residents in the South Lake County Fire Protection District That measure requires a supermajority vote of 66.7 percent. The preliminary voting returns show 66.2 percent are in favor. There are still thousands of ballots to be counted and the official canvass will be completed in a month.
