The Seaside City Council voted 4-1 Thursday night to place a measure on the Nov. 4 ballot that will ask residents whether the city should keep its 6 percent utility user tax. Mayor Ralph Rubio cast the dissenting vote.

The council voted unanimously to accept a fiscal impact report regarding a theoretical repeal of the tax. It also voted unanimously to accept the Monterey County Registrar of Voter's certification of the measure.

The vote was a formality because the council is legally obligated to place the measure on a ballot. The Seaside Taxpayers Association submitted more than the minimum number of signatures to qualify the measure.

Had the council voted against placing the measure on the Nov. 4 ballot, it would have had to schedule a special election.
