LAFCO extends search for civilian member

Commissioners who decide on annexations and government boundaries in Los Angeles County extended their search for a civilian commissioner to round out their team by another month.

The Los Angeles County Local Agency Formation Commission issued a notice last month that it was looking for an alternate public member.

It’s LAFCO’s job, in part, to oversee changes to local government boundaries that involve the formation and expansion of cities and special districts.

“The commission extended the application deadline to June 10,” LAFCO Executive Officer Paul Novak said this week.

Whomever is chosen for the spot will be asked to serve for four years, with no restrictions against the incumbent seeking reappointment.

LAFCO is a state-mandated commission charged with providing the orderly formation and growth of cities and special districts.

It reviews and holds public hearings on proposals for boundary changes for the 88 cities and 89 special districts in Los Angeles County.

It’s made up of nine regular members and six alternate members, including representatives from the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, the city of Los Angeles, the San Fernando Valley, the other 87 cities and independent special districts in Los Angeles County.

The public member position is a regular member of the commission and represents the general public.

The alternate public member serves and votes in place of the public member when the public member is absent.
