    In El Cajon, there will be no extension of a sales tax hike put in place by voters 10 years ago.

    The sales tax in the city will drop by a half cent next year.

    In 2004, voters approved Proposition O to raise money to build new public safety buildings or fix aging facilities.

    Over the past decade, city officials say the additional sales tax raised more than $100 million and helped in the building of Fire Station #8 and other city improvements.

    The city council agreed not to ask residents for an extension of the half cent tax increase, since those projects are near completion.
