SANTA FEY COUNTY, N.M. — On Nov. 6, rural Santa Fe County residents will be asked to weigh in on a quarter-cent gross receipts tax increase that would raise money for the county Fire Department's capital needs.
The tax increase - about 25 cents on a $100 purchase - is expected to generate about $1.24 million annually, according to county officials. The money would be used for fire equipment vehicles, buildings, gear and similar items.
