Measure G: Pacific Grove Unified School District Bond Issue

The idea behind Measure G's different style of bond issue was that by selling a series of smaller, short-term bonds paid back in the short span of 3 to 5 years, instead of issuing the entire $27.8 million all at once, the borrowing costs of the bond issue would be significantly reduced. Estimates showed as little as 10% of the money spent on Measure G would be interest, while with conventional borrowing the interest could potentially have made up nearly 50% of the money spent on the bonds.
