Shelter Cove Fire Department to benefit from new Measure B taxes

SHELTER COVE, CA. – Shelter Cove and Whitethorn residents will see a raise in parcel taxes in exchange for increased emergency services with the new approval of Measure B.

Residents have been paying $25 per fiscal year in parcel taxes for the past 22 years, but this year’s Election Day voters passed Measure B to raise those fees by a 69% majority vote.

The funds will go to the Shelter Cove Fire Department for equipment, training, and improvement of fire protection and emergency medical response services.

Those tax increases will bring up resident dwellings taxes each year by $100, commercial residential and commercial buildings by $225, and vacant residential and vacant commercial parcels by $74.
