The Modesto City Council's Finance and Economic Development Committees will meet this afternoon to discuss how the city should spend the additional revenue if a 1 percentage point sales tax increase passes in November.
The Finance Committee also will discuss potential spending cuts if the tax measure fails.
The Economic Development meeting starts at 1 p.m.; Finance at 3 p.m. Both meetings are in Room 2008 at Tenth Street Place, 1010 10th St. In September, the City Council is expected to pass a resolution on how it intends to spend the tax money.
The city is proposing half for public safety, a quarter for roads, a tenth to rebuilding reserves and the remainder to parks and recreation and economic development.
