Another CALAFCO University Course Coming Soon

Join us for a Deep Dive into Municipal Service Reviews: One size does not fit all.  This session will be held in Sacramento on Monday, July 15, 2019. This course explores how to efficiently solicit information needed for preparation of the MSR; writing for a range of agencies from well performing, struggling and not performing or fulfilling their intended purpose; writing determinations that will support spheres of influence and future actions.

This very unique panel will also provide insight into source documents and areas of determination specific to water agencies and health care districts. Further we will hear the perspective of a special district that has been the subject of an MSR. Don’t miss this distinctive opportunity to learn techniques and strategies to streamline data collection, hone determinations specific to the agency under study and take your MSR’s to the next level.  We will hear from a variety of experienced practitioners and subject matter experts:

  • Christine Crawford: Executive Officer, Yolo LAFCo on data collection methods
  • David J. Ruderman, Senior Counsel, Colantuono, Highsmith and Whatley, LLC on LAFCo authority and discretion in adopting determinations and recommendations that are binding versus advisory 
  • Barry Jantz, Chief Executive Officer, Grossmont Health Care District on the nuances of healthcare districts (HCDs) that own and operate hospitals and those that do not, source documents that inform determinations for HCDs and a special district perspective of the MSR experience
  • Mike McGill, Commissioner, Special District, Contra Costa LAFCo on case studies and lessons learned from a LAFCo commissioner perspective
  • Robert Shibatani, Managing Partner, The Shibatani Group International on detailed overview of areas of determinations for water agencies and source documents that support those determinations
