A small price

Grover BeachMarch 6, 2014 

I can’t see how separate fire (or police as we currently have) departments for Grover Beach, Arroyo Grande and Oceano could possibly save money.

Also, according to my arithmetic, $66 per year per home comes out to $5.50 a month. A small price to pay when life or property are at risk.

In addition, since the fee will be added to property tax bills, it will only be $33 every six months and will be deductible on state and federal taxes.
