An Arroyo Grande Police Station bond proposition, Measure A-10 ballot question was on the June 8, 2010 ballot in the City of Arroyo Grande in San Luis Obispo County, where it was defeated.

A 2/3rds supermajority vote was required for approval. In California, a 55 percent supermajority vote is required to approve school bond measures, but a 2/3rds supermajority vote is required to approve city bonds.

Measure A-10 asked voters to approve the city selling up to $6 million in general obligations bonds in order to build a new police station. The bonds would have had a 30-year payout and included an amount sufficient to retire the bonds issued in 2003 to build the city's fire station.

Measure A-10 was unanimously placed on the ballot by the Arroyo Grande City Council.

Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Shall the City of Arroyo Grande fund construction of a new Police Station and refinance the 2003 Fire Station bonds by issuing 30-year bonds not to exceed $6,000,000 provided that the tax rate is maintained at or below the existing tax rate for the Fire Station bonds and a portion of the bond payments will be paid by revenues from the 2006 Local Sales Tax Measure?[1][2]
