SLO County approves new budget
June 22, 2011
The new budget, which takes effect July 1, represents a $1.9 million increase in spending and no reduction in jobs.
Supervisors agreed to increase $90,000 in funding to the Visitors and Conference Bureau which lost more than $300,000 last year in its sponsorship of Savor the Central Coast. In addition, the county added an additional $139,137 to the Planning and Building department.
The most contentious reduction to the new budget was an $800,000 cut to Community Health Centers. Impacts of the cuts could result in the closures of the Morro Bay and Cambria clinics.
