JOINT POWERS AGENCY (JPA) SERVICE REVIEW (SR) FOR THE THE VALLEY CLEAN ENERGY ALLIANCE (VCE) (LAFCo No. 21-02)

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 municipal service reviews (MSR) 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 (SR) for VCE will be available for public review beginning March 31, 2021, online at www.yololafco.org. To be included in the staff report, written comments on the SR should be returned to the LAFCo office by April 14, 2021, either by mail at the 625 Court Street, Suite 107, Woodland, CA 95695, or via e-mail to Yolo LAFCo Executive Officer Christine Crawford at lafco@yolocounty.org.
