San Diego County Board Policies, California

Current through June 13, 2023

The Board of Supervisors of the County of San Diego are charged with the responsibility of establishing policy to guide the various functions of the County and, where necessary, to establish procedures by which functions are performed. Regulatory policies established by the Board usually are adopted by ordinance and included in the County Code of Regulatory Ordinances. Other policy matters are included by ordinance in the Administrative Code. However, a third group of policies are also established which by their nature do not require adoption by ordinance. Such policies, adopted by statement of action of the Board, need to be consolidated in a reference document for easy access. These policies make up the Board of Supervisors Policy Manual.
