A summary of the Proposed Budget will be available for public review beginning April 25 on weekdays 8:00 am to noon, and 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm at the SLO County APCD offices. Copies of the budget summary and the schedule of District fees will also be available for review at the public libraries in Arroyo Grande, Atascadero, Morro Bay, Nipomo, Paso Robles, and San Luis Obispo during their normal business hours.
Most of our funding comes from fees paid by businesses and industries that cause air pollution, and from an air quality fee for vehicles registered in San Luis Obispo County. Other minor funding sources include state and federal grants and some property taxes. The APCD does not ordinarily receive funding from city or county general funds.
The District operates on the governmental fiscal cycle that begins on July 1 of each year and ends on June 30. The budget allocation for FY 2014-2015 is scheduled for hearing presentation at the May 28 and June 18 APCD Board meetings, with final approval scheduled for the June meeting.
The 2013-2017 Fiscal Plan evaluates historical and projected future APCD expenditures and revenue in the context of the adopted Strategic Action Plan (SAP) and current fiscal constraints. It also identifies the fiscal strategies needed to ensure the District has sufficient resources to accomplish our mission and mandates into the foreseeable future.
