    Two cannabis tax measures, three school bond measures and a sales tax measure are on ballots around Solano County for the Nov. 6 election.

    Voters in Suisun City and Benicia will consider a cannabis industry general tax that requires majority approval. The tax rate under Measure C in Suisun City would be no more than 15 percent of gross receipts and $25 per square foot of space used for commercial cannabis activities.

    The estimated $2 million in annual tax revenue will pay for public safety, street maintenance and other city services until voters repeal it.

    The tax in Benicia under Measure E will not exceed $10 per canopy square foot for commercial cannabis cultivation and 6 percent of gross receipts for other cannabis businesses.

    It will generate an estimated $1.46 million annually for police, fire and emergency services, parks recreation and street maintenance.

    Dixon voters will be asked to approve Measure N, a half-cent sales tax for 10 years for street maintenance, road improvements and the construction of the Parkway Boulevard rail over-crossing. Measure N will generate $1.4 million a year and requires two-thirds approval.

    The Davis Joint Unified School District's Measure M is a $150.9 million bond issue to update and modernize classrooms, science and innovation labs and facilities to meet current academic standards.

    The Winters Joint Unified School District's Measure P is a $20 million bond issue to repair and replace leaky roofs, modernize classrooms, restrooms and school facilities and replace deteriorating plumbing and sewer systems.

    The Vallejo City Unified School District's Measure S is a $194 million bond issue to improve classroom education, safety and college/career preparation by repairing and updating classrooms, roofs, and bathrooms, science and technology labs, security, disability access and constructing and modernizing sites, facilities and equipment.

    The school bond measures need 55 percent approval to pass.
