The Contra Costa Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) is currently accepting applications for the Regular and Alternate Public Member seats.

LAFCO is an independent agency created by the State of California.  LAFCO is charged with encouraging orderly governmental boundaries and efficient services, discouraging urban sprawl, and preserving agricultural and open space resources.  The Commission meets these objectives by regulating the boundaries of cities and special districts and conducting municipal service reviews and other special studies.

Contra Costa LAFCO is composed of seven voting members and four alternates.  These include two members and an alternate from the County Board of Supervisors, two members and an alternate from city councils, two members and an alternate from independent special district boards, and one public member and one alternate public member.  Alternate members participate in meetings, but vote only when the regular member is absent or has a conflict of interest.
