What will Happen if Measure V Doesn't Pass?

The answer will be different for each of the fire department members of the TCFA. For the Groveland Fire Department, this means that expenses will continue to exceed property tax revenue; funding will not be available to replace fire engines, with an average age of 23 years or expensive emergency response equipment. As detailed in the Groveland Fire Master Plan completed in 2020 by Citygate Consulting, if additional revenue is not received by GCSD for fire services, GCSD will not have adequate funds within the next few years to continue the current level of station staffing, with an option to consider discontinuing fire services altogether.
