During the November 2020 General Municipal Election, Grover Beach residents will be able to vote on the proposed one-cent (or 1.0%) local transactions and use tax ("sales tax"), Measure F-20. If passed by Grover Beach voters, Measure F-20 would generate approximately $1.8 million annually to help Grover Beach address important community needs. These include infrastructure projects, economic development programs, and public safety and emergency services.

If approved, all Measure F-20 revenues would stay local--none of it would go to the County or State. Revenues would help fund a variety of City services and programs, such as: 

  • Repairing major streets, such as West Grand Avenue

  • Improving miles of sidewalks to make the city more accessible for pedestrians

  • Ongoing assistance and support to help businesses be successful in the Grover Beach community, including helping counter the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic

  • Increasing public safety staffing for proactive community and neighborhood outreach work

The 1.0% sales tax applies only to goods and services within Grover Beach, such as bars, restaurants, gasoline and retail stores like clothing stores. It does not apply to most groceries or the services of a doctor, dentist or attorney. Read this resource from The California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA) for full details about sales tax exemptions and exclusions.
