County Adopts $592.3 Million Balanced Budget for FY 2017-18


The County of San Luis Obispo Board of Supervisors adopted a $592.3 million budget for fiscal year (FY) 2017-18 on Tuesday.

The $592.3 million budget is about a 3 percent growth over the current fiscal year. The budget prioritizes funding that allows the County to meet legal mandates and debt service requirements, strengthen public safety, and improve roads. It also includes funding to manage groundwater basins, continue the 50Now program to house and serve chronically homeless individuals, regulate medical and recreational cannabis, and fund parks projects in the south county.

The budget also incorporates funds distributed to local nonprofits as well as funds related to groundwater management, commercial cannabis cultivation regulations and enforcement, and affordable housing programs.

“The budget is the most important document we produce, as it outlines the County’s financial plan for the upcoming fiscal year and is intended to communicate and implement Board policy related to County operations,” said County Budget Director Emily Jackson.

The people of San Luis Obispo County had an opportunity to weigh in on the budget recommendations during public budget hearings on June 12 and 14.

The County government publishes its award-winning budget document every year, attempting to strike an appropriate balance between financial detail and discussion of bigger picture issues, Jackson said. Each year, the document is intended to inform meaningful discussion about resource allocation decisions among the public, the Board of Supervisors, and staff.

Travel to Tuscany in Fall of 2017


Tuscany/One Hotel Holiday Presented by CI Destinations

The Los Osos/Baywood Park Chamber of Commerce will once again be offering a fully escorted tour of the awe inspiring region of Tuscany. Tuscany is the place where movies are filmed and fantasies run wild. Perhaps it’s the cities of Florence, Pisa, or Sienna that invoke feelings of culture, art, or arouse the senses as do the smells and taste of the Chianti region. The fact is that Tuscany is home to some of the most famous tourist attractions in all of Italy.

This is truly an amazing opportunity to discover all that Tuscany has to offer. Tuscany is what many people around the world envision as a true representation of Italy.

DEPARTING OCTOBER 24, 2017. For more information contact the Chamber office at 805.528.4884.

County of SLO Publishes 2016 Annual Report


Residents of San Luis Obispo County can now access the County’s 2016 Annual Report online to find information about activities, accomplishments and challenges the County faced last year.

“The annual report provides residents of San Luis Obispo County with a summary of the public services offered in 2016,” said County Administrative Officer Dan Buckshi. “The report for 2016 shines a light on some of the ways the County met the needs and desires of the community. It identifies the challenges we faced this past year and highlights important outcomes associated with the programs and services we provided.”

The 2016 Annual Report gives people a glimpse at some of the hundreds of public services provided by the County last year. From a behind-the-scenes look at FEMA drills and the Phillips 66 hearings to details about the three elections the County managed last year, the report is full of important information that the public can use and refer back to for years to come.

The report can only be found online at The report this year is broken out into five main sections: water, community, economy, upgrades, and safety. It also includes a video message from District 4 Supervisor Lynn Compton, who served as the 2016 Chair of the Board of Supervisors, and a written message from Buckshi.

Existing staff prepared the report in-house, which included coordination between departments, content development, graphic design, website development and video production.
