There will be a vacancy in the current Regular Public Member term beginning July 2024 through January 2027. The term for the Alternate Public Member will be February 2025 through January 2029.

LAFCo is an independent agency created by the California State Legislature in 1963. LAFCo is charged with encouraging orderly governmental boundaries and efficient services, discouraging urban sprawl, and preserving agricultural and open space resources. LAFCo meets these objectives by regulating the boundaries of cities and special districts and conducting municipal service reviews and other special studies.

Yolo LAFCo is composed of five voting members. Two regular members are elected county supervisors appointed by the Yolo County Board of Supervisors. Two regular members are elected city officials appointed by the Mayors of the County's four incorporated cities. The public member and alternate are citizens appointed by the four regular members.

Yolo LAFCo meetings are typically held on the fourth Thursday of every month except for August and November where there will be no regular meeting, and on the first Thursday in the month of December. Meetings are held at 9:00 a.m. in the Yolo County Board of Supervisors Chamber, 625 Court Street, Room 206, Woodland, CA, 95695, or at a time and place set and noticed by the Commission, Commission Chair or the Executive Officer of the Commission.

Requirements: Applicants must be residents and registered voters of Yolo County, able to regularly attend LAFCo meetings, have a general understanding of LAFCo functions and authorities, and cannot be officers or employees of Yolo County or any city or special district in the county. Public members are considered public officials and are required to file a standard annual financial disclosure statement with the California Fair Political Practices Commission.

In order to be considered, a completed application form must be received in the Yolo LAFCo office by noon on Monday, May 6, 2024. The office is located at 625 Court Street, Suite 107, Woodland, CA.
