In 2006, voters in Arroyo Grande voted to approve Measure O-06, which added a 0.5% sales tax to the local sales tax rate. This 0.5% goes directly to the City of Arroyo Grande General Fund. General Fund dollars can be used for any municipal programs, facilities, and services throughout the City.
Currently, the City spends the Measure O-06 funds consistent with the wishes expressed by the voting public in advisory measures that accompanied the 0.5% sales tax measure in 2006. Visit this webpage to learn more about Measure O-06: http://www.arroyogrande.org/128/Sales-Tax
