Oakland Council Votes for Taxes

The Oakland City Council voted Monday night to submit four tax measures to voters in November, including a $360 parcel tax designed to let the city rehire 80 recently laid-off police officers. The measure was conditioned upon the police union agreeing to contribute a total of 9 percent to its pension benefits over the next three years.
