2021-2022 Proposed Budget Available


The Air Pollution Control District's proposed budget of $5,314,933 for Fiscal Year (FY) 2021-2022 represents a 7% decrease from FY 2020-2021. There are no proposed changes to the District's fees, hourly billing rate, or permit renewal factor.  Click here to be directed to the Budget page for more information and the complete proposed budget. 
A summary of the Proposed Budget is available for public review by appointment on weekdays, 8:00 am to noon, and 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm, at the SLO County APCD office. Copies of the budget summary and the schedule of District fees are also 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 the District’s 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 2021-2022 is scheduled for hearing presentation at the May 26 and June 23, 2021 APCD Board meetings, with final approval scheduled for the June meeting.
