Kern County Sheriff Donny Youngblood is proposing a 1-cent sales tax to be on the November ballot.
The Sheriff will take the proposal to the Kern County Board of Supervisors during Tuesday's meeting.
The proposal would need to be approved by supervisors before being placed on the November ballot.
Youngblood spoke to 23ABC about the proposal and said the money would go to the county and could bring in as much as $35 million annually.
He said the hope would be to use some of that money to help fill the nearly 70 vacant positions in his department.
He pointed to the fiscal emergency the county has been faced with in recent years as to the need for the tax.
That tax would take one cent of every dollar spent in the county.
