LAFCO accepting applications
The El Dorado Local Agency Formation Commission is accepting applications for its public member position.
The public member will serve a new four-year term, which will run from May 2014 through May 2018, to represent the interests of the citizens and residents of El Dorado County.
Applicants must be a resident and a registered voter in El Dorado County and cannot be a city, district or county official of any public agency within El Dorado County. Those seated on LAFCO are subject to the Fair Political Practices Commission and must file an annual conflict of interest statement.
Under state law, LAFCO is mandated to ensure the logical formation and determination of the local government agency boundaries, which affect growth and development patterns, delivery of urban services, and agricultural and open space lands within El Dorado County. The commission typically meets the fourth Wednesday of every month at 5:30 p.m., with the exception of the months of November and December. Because of the holidays, a combined meeting is typically held on the second Wednesday of December.
Applications are due April 11 to El Dorado LAFCO, 550 Main St., Suite E, Placerville, CA 95667. The application form is posted on the web at http://www.edlafco.us. For information, call the LAFCO office at 530-295-2707.
