City of Rocklin – Measure F
Transient Occupancy Tax – Amendment to Rocklin Municipal Code Chapter 5.24

This Measure contains a proposed amendment to Chapter 5.24 of the City of Rocklin Municipal Code with respect to the City’s transient occupancy tax (TOT). The Measure would increase the City’s Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) from eight (8) percent to ten (10) percent and expand its application to campgrounds.
