As a Grover Beach homeowner, Measure K-14 will place an additional assessment on my property taxes. K-14 is not fair to all homeowners, especially those like me who already pay higher taxes because we bought after Proposition 13.
According to The Tribune, assessments would remain on tax bills for as long as 45 years. During that time, annual payments would range from $24 per $100,000 of assessed value to as much as $153 per $100,000 of assessed value. You cannot sell your home without disclosing the assessment to potential buyers.
K-14 is on the ballot for all voters, even though it only affects homeowners financially. Why wouldn’t nonhomeowners vote for it, since it won’t cost them?
Is there a clear plan in place for repairing the streets? Has anyone tried to imagine the traffic jams that will certainly occur?
In the mayoral election, both candidates are running on the same platforms. If you want to avoid a K-14 assessment, why would you want to vote for either candidate? Neither seems to care what the impact will be on all of their constituents.
Is this election about the residents of Grover Beach, or is it in sync with getting a lodge built that’s not surrounded by broken streets?
Vote “no” on K-14.
