El Medio Fire Protection District bond proposition, Measure M (November 2012)
Measure M would have authorized the El Medio Fire Protection District to borrow $1 million. The district wanted the money in order to acquire a parcel of land and make improvements on it, including the development of a training facility for firefighters.
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 or special district bonds.)
