The Stanislaus Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) is seeking applicants to fill an upcoming vacancy for a Public Member and Alternate Public Member on the Commission. Serving as a public member to LAFCO is a unique opportunity. It allows residents who are not elected officials to serve as equal members on a Commission with elected county supervisors, mayors or city council members. Minimum qualifications for appointment include: (1) being a resident of Stanislaus County; and (2) persons not currently an officer or employee of the County, or any city or special district with territory in Stanislaus County. A public member represents the public interest within the county as a whole.
The Stanislaus Local Agency Formation Commission is responsible for coordinating logical and timely changes in governmental boundaries, conducting special studies, and establishing spheres of influence for each city and special district within Stanislaus County. The Commission is comprised of two County Supervisors, two City Council representatives, and a Public Member. There is an alternate member for each regular member category. In Stanislaus County, alternate members participate fully in LAFCO proceedings, with the exception that they vote only in the absence or disqualification of the regular member. To remain effective members, alternates are expected to attend and participate in LAFCO meetings. Regular meetings of the Commission are held in the evening on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 6:00 pm, in the Basement Chambers, at Tenth Street Place, 1010 Tenth Street, Modesto.
Application forms and further information may be obtained from the LAFCO website at: www.stanislauslafco.com or at the LAFCO Office, located at 1010 Tenth Street, Suite 3600, Modesto, CA 95354.
