Arroyo Grande Police Station bonds, Measure A-10 (June 2010)
|Voting on Bond Issues|
|Not on ballot|
A 2/3rds supermajority vote was required for approval. In California, a 55% 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.
- These final, certified results are from the San Luis Obispo County elections office.
