BACKGROUND INFO

Local Agency Formation Commissions (LAFCOs) in California are independent agencies created by the California Legislature in 1963 among those whose major purposes include encouraging the orderly formation of local governmental agencies and conserving and preserving natural resources.  Under state law (Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Local Government Reorganization Act of 2000;GC §56000 et seq.), LAFCO is an independent regulatory body mandated to streamline governmental structure, preserve agricultural and open space lands, promote the efficient and effective delivery of agency services, encourage the logical formation of local government agency  and special districts boundaries. The Commission's efforts are directed toward seeing that services are provided efficiently and economically while agricultural and open-space lands are protected. The Tehama LAFCo budget of approximately $2,400 is typical and accounts for at least two paid projects on average per year. From 2004 to 2017 the LAFCo minimal budget has been maintained at about $2,000 a fiscal year, paid by Tehama County, these funds are available to conduct applicant driven project business at LAFCO meetings.
