    Solano County voters approved sales tax increases in Fairfield,  Vacaville and Rio Vista in Tuesday's election.

    All three measures required majority approval, and all passed  easily.

    Fairfield's Measure P, which garnered 66 percent approval  according to unofficial results, authorizes a one-cent sales tax for five  years for public safety services, street maintenance, parks, infrastructure  and general services.

    Vacaville residents passed Measure M, a quarter-cent sales tax for  five years to fund emergency services and street lighting, giving it 69  percent approval. Voters in that city also approved Measure I, which will  continue an existing excise tax for 25 years.

    In Rio Vista, 70 percent of voters supported Measure O, a  five-year three-quarter-cent sales tax that will go toward police, fire,  land-use planning and other city services.

    It was too early to say whether voters in the Davis Joint Unified  School District had approved Measure E, the continuation of a parcel tax for  the next four years to offset state funding cuts.

    It appeared to have garnered the required two-thirds approval it  needed by early this morning, but not all of Yolo County's precincts had  reported results yet.

    The measure had a provision that the tax could increase if the  state's Proposition 30 did not pass.

     As of early this morning, Proposition 30 appeared to have been  approved.

    In the Solano Community College District, Measure Q, a $348  million bond measure, was approved to upgrade facilities at schools and  expand access to military and disabled veteran students.

    Dixon voters shot down Measure N, which aimed to increase  transparency at government meetings.
