The Lodi City Council unanimously approved the introduction of an ordinance that would allow a measure for a half-cent sales tax increase to be placed on the November ballot during its meeting held Wednesday. Councilman Bob Johnson participated by phone.

According to City Manager Steve Schwabauer, the city faces a significant financial challenge due to state regulations and growing pension costs. Schwabauer said the city has engaged with the community and the consensus is that all the services the city provides are essential. The only way to maintain the services is to implement a half-cent sales tax increase, he said.
