The Washoe County Commission voted Tuesday to put a measure on the November ballot asking voters to increase two taxes to back Washoe County School District bonds.

The commission ratified the recommendations of a blue-ribbon committee empaneled in 2007 by the Nevada Legislature. The panel recommended a one-quarter percent sales and use tax increase as well as a tax increase on vehicle property levies. Together, the two taxes would support the issuance of $393 million in bonds between 2009 and 2014, according to the district.
