Is Measure F-20 intended to address budget shortfalls related to fiscal impacts of COVID-19?

The City of Grover Beach budget for FY 2020-21 is balanced without a budget shortfall despite revenue losses from the COVID-19 pandemic. Thus, Measure F-20 is not intended to address COVID-related budget shortfalls, though it could provide additional assistance for local businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Measure F-20 could help address long-standing community needs not presently covered by the City’s General Fund budget, such as major street repairs, sidewalk improvements and public safety services that are currently underfunded.
