LAFCOs and Special Districts: Pitfalls and Opportunities

Monterey Marriott & Portola Hotels

Please join John Bakker, the Chair of Meyers Nave’s Municipal and Special District Practice Group, and Meyers Nave Of Counsel Shaye Diveley for a presentation on “LAFCOs and Special Districts: Pitfalls and Opportunities” at the California Special Districts Association’s Annual Conference on September 27 in Monterey, CA.

LAFCOs have significant authority over special districts and special care is needed to ensure that a district does not run afoul of its powers. LAFCOs have the power to reorganize special districts, oversee some operations and even eliminate them altogether. John and Shaye will review specific instances where special districts can work with LAFCOs to avoid problems with other districts, evaluate new opportunities and understand where regional cooperation is the best policy for all involved. They will explain how to respond to LAFCOs in a manner that supports and protects a district, including issues relating to requests for information, sphere of influence, and other studies that may affect a district’s future. The program identifies potential risks and benefits of working with LAFCOs.

Date: Wednesday, September 27
Time: 2:15-3:30 PM
Where: Monterey Marriott & Portola Hotels, Monterey, CA
