LAFCo 101 – Understanding and applying the basics

This informative and interactive session is intended to provide elected officials and staff members of LAFCos, counties, cities, and special districts with a better working knowledge of LAFCo history, processes, legal framework and procedures. Participants will also have the opportunity to work together in small groups to discuss and resolve some challenging LAFCo scenarios. Panelists and participants will discuss a number of topics including the authority and purpose of LAFCo; the LAFCo review process; the laws involved in LAFCo decisions; and updating Spheres of Influence and Municipal Service Reviews. You always learn something by attending a LAFCo 101 session!
