Final approval of a paramedic tax increase will come before the Garden Grove City Council when it meets Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.
The council is expected to approve the ordinance, which would cost the average homeowner about $30 a year more to pay for rising costs in the emergency medical aid program.
Also to be considered is a resolution calling for an election in November to increase the tax that visitors to Garden Grove hotels pay for their lodging.
Both are aimed at helping to balance the city’s budget, which faces a shortfall in the wake of a slow economic recovery and the state’s ending of redevelopment agencies.
The council will also consider:
• amended labor agreements with the Garden Grove Local of the International Association of Firefighters and the Garden Grove Police Management Association;
• assessments for lighting and park maintenance.
