BAKERSFIELD — Residents in the unincorporated areas of Kern County — including the communities of Rosamond, Mojave and Boron — will be asked to approve a one-cent sales tax, in November, with the proceeds to support vital county services in those areas, such as public safety and economic development.

The Kern County Board of Supervisors, on Tuesday, agreed to place the sales tax measure on the ballot in an effort to increase revenues to bolster services in those areas that rely on the county.
