Re: “Residents to vote on sales tax increase in November,” Dina Colunga, July 10.

As a citizen, I am not against such the proposed one-cent sales tax increase for these trying times. But, these types of sales tax increases added to the state sales tax  almost always come with a term. Could we please have this important information added to your next publication? People need time to give this serious consideration, as obviously the City Council has. Only the best interest of this fine city are at stake. Complete information is preferable in advance of receiving a ballot.
