June 27, 2020 LETTER: Thankful for Citrus Heights Police Department May 28, 2020 A slide presented during a July council meeting shows the City of Citrus Heights is projected to have ongoing revenue shortfalls, in the absence of cuts or increased revenue. By Alan Utzig, Citrus Heights–[RE: Citrus Heights council votes 4-1 to put $12M sales tax increase on ballot; July 26th] Council members should keep in mind that Placer County is only a few minutes away. There are places in Placer County that would have a sales tax difference of 1.5%, making it a worthwhile trip, especially for a larger purchase. So the City of Citrus Heights would get nothing and Placer County would get some new customers. Since we have many residents without income or limited income, this is not the time to raise taxes. I wish Henry Tingle was still here.
