A little less than half of the 58 LAFCos do not have special district representation. In 2017, the Governor signed AB 979 establishing new procedures for Independent Special District Selection Committees including new procedures for when the EO must call and give notice of a meeting of members of the committee. This session will cover meetings of the Independent Special District Selection Committee generally, the new procedures enacted by AB 979, and LAFCos’ role in appointments to the countywide RDA oversight board. Speakers: Paula Graf, Analyst, Imperial LAFCo; David J. Ruderman, Senior Counsel, Colantuono, Highsmith & Whatley; Anthony Tannehill, Legislative Representative, California Special Districts Association. Moderator: Gary Bell, Senior Counsel, Colantuono, Highsmith & Whatley.
