With Measure PS, Lynwood voters will be able to decide whether their sales tax stays within the City or is distributed to the County when they vote on Tuesday, November 5, 2019.
Lynwood residents will pay the same amount of sales tax. But instead of the dollars going toward Lynwood’s infrastructure, public safety and programs for residents, the money will be dispersed throughout the County.
