Protest Hearing

Where a city, pursuant to section 51243.5 of the Government Code, has filed a protest to a Williamson Act contract, but the LAFCo does not hold a hearing on such protest before the execution of the contract by the board of supervisors, the commission may still thereafter properly hold a hearing on and uphold the city's protest. The legal effect of the LAFCo upholding the city's protest after the Williamson Act contract has been executed is the same as if it had been upheld before execution thereof.
