SLO County Roundup

San Luis Obispo

San Luis Obispo County supervisors on Tuesday unanimously decided to extend the county’s local emergency, declared Dec. 21 because of storm damage that included flooding.

A state of emergency gives local agencies more flexibility in dealing with disasters and hastens the flow of state and local dollars to the county.
