A study recently cited that California Cities are more fiscally challenged than other cities across the nation. Special districts, particularly fire districts, are increasingly proposing consolidation in a reaction to their fiscal challenges. Many are aware of the fundamental issues: retirement liabilities, Proposition 13 and redevelopment elimination among other. What can your LAFCo actually do to avert what seems to be a crisis happening in slow motion with little relief on the way from Sacramento? Should LAFCos do more, and if so, what?
