Community Services District

Five Cities Fire Authority

Arroyo Grande city officials and community members met for over four hours this week to consider if Arroyo Grande should stay in the Five Cities Fire Authority (FCFA), which isn’t actually comprised of five cities, it’s three—including Oceano and Grover Beach. The meeting came after city staff recommended Arroyo Grande leave the fire department, essentially dissolving it. Now San Luis Obispo County officials may be stepping in to help save it.

A local community will soon determine whether it should be self-governed.

Isla Vista will vote in November on its Community Services District status. 

The man who has been in charge of San Luis Obispo County's public works department for the past several years will become Oceano's new general manager this summer. Paavo Ogren is expected to begin running the Community Services District in July.

Mary Lucey is the vice president of the district board and told KCBX Friday, they're very excited to have somebody of Ogren's caliper ready to take charge.
