Back in November, voters in Contra Costa County rejected a temporary parcel tax for the Contra Costa Fire Protection District. Measure Q would have collected $75 from owners of single family homes. The final vote on Measure Q was 47 percent against and 53 percent in favor. The measure needed two-thirds support to pass.
