Tehachapi City Hall, located at 115 S. Robinson St. On July 18 the City Council will consider putting a sales tax increase on the November 2022 ballot.

Calling attention to what he calls looming financial challenges, City Manager Greg Garrett has recommended that the Tehachapi City Council go to voters in November for approval to increase the sales tax within the city by 1 percent — the same amount Kern County will ask for in unincorporated areas of the county.

Garrett’s recommendation is included in the agenda package for the City Council’s July 18 meeting. That meeting will begin at 6 p.m. in the Community Room of the Tehachapi Police Department, 220 W. C St.
