Annual Local Sales Tax Allocation Reports

In November 2006, the voters of Arroyo Grande approved Measure O-06, which established a half-cent local sales tax to meet City needs identified in the City's long range financial plan. The following four categories of needs were projected:

  • Infrastructure improvements, including the street, drainage and creek systems;
  • Transportation projects;
  • Public safety needs; and
  • Facility upgrades to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.

To ensure accountability, the measure included a provision requiring the City to publish and distribute an annual report to each household on the revenues and expenditures from the sales tax proceeds.The following annual reports highlight local sales tax activity within the City of Arroyo Grande.
