Show Me the Money! - Challenges and Opportunities for LAFCo Funding

This unique session features a panel of Commissioners representing LAFCos from each region of the state and with varying budget sizes. Join us to learn from the perspectives of representatives of rural, suburban and urban LAFCos as they grapple with budget and funding issues. The panel will also share some unique funding opportunities they’ve created for themselves to help address the funding squeeze. Small group discussions will give you the chance to share best practices and generate fresh ideas on funding resources for your own LAFCo. We will also hear from CALAFCO on the fiscal-related results of the most recent CALAFCO Biennial Survey and the session will close with an opportunity to learn more about a potential legislative option for a one-time funding opportunity for LAFCos.

Presented by: Virginia Bass, Commissioner, Humboldt LAFCo; Amanda Folendorf, Commissioner, Calaveras LAFCo; Mike Kelley, Commissioner, Imperial LAFCo; Susan Vicklund Wilson, Commissioner, Santa Clara LAFCo
Moderated by: Pamela Miller, Executive Director, CALAFCO
