Continuation of Services After Annexation

A LAFCo may approve the continuation of a county service area within territory to be annexed by a city even though the level of services provided in the area will be the same as the level of the services provided by the city to its other residents, but only when the commission finds that (1) discontinuation would deprive the area of services needed to ensure the health, safety, or welfare of the residents and (2) continuation would not affect the ability of the city to provide any services.
