Why is Measure F-20 on the November 2020 ballot?

On Monday, July 20, 2020, the Grover Beach City Council unanimously adopted a resolution calling for the placement of a 1.0% Transaction and Use Tax (Sales Tax) on the November 2020 ballot. This will let voters decide whether to invest additional funding in projects and services the community said were important in the "2019 Grover Beach Community Priorities Survey." This includes major street repairs and sidewalk improvements, business support and public safety services that are currently underfunded.
