Notice of Availability of Draft JPA Service Review and Public Hearing
Notice is hereby given that on Thursday, March 28, 2019, at 9:00 am, or as soon thereafter as the matter may be heard, the Yolo Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) will hold a Public Hearing at the Yolo County Board of Supervisors Chambers, 625 Court Street, Room 206, Woodland, CA to consider adoption of a:
JOINT POWERS AGENCY (JPA) SERVICE REVIEW FOR THE YOLO EMERGENCY COMMUNICATIONS AGENCY
Government Code Section §56301 establishes that “one of the objects of the commission is to make studies and to obtain and furnish information which will contribute to the logical and reasonable development of local agencies in each county and to shape the development of local agencies so as to advantageously provide for the present and future needs of each county and its communities.”
While MSRs are not legally required of Joint Powers Agencies/Authorities, LAFCo has been requested by the cities and County (i.e. JPA member agencies) to provide MSR-like service reviews of selected types of JPAs in the county. LAFCo has the authority to furnish informational studies and analyzing independent data to make informed recommendations regarding the efficient, cost-effective, and reliable delivery of services to residents, landowners, and businesses via these JPAs.
The Draft JPA Service Review for the Yolo Emergency Communications Agency (YECA) will be available for public review beginning March 6, 2019, at the office of the Yolo LAFCo and online at www.yololafco.org. To be included in the staff report, written comments on the MSR should be returned to the LAFCo office by March 20, 2019, either by mail at the address stated below or via e-mail to Yolo LAFCo Executive Officer Christine Crawford at (redacted). Comments received after that date will also be considered, but included in a supplemental packet to the Commission.
