SUBJECT:           LAFCO Representative & Possible Resolution 2004-6


Consider procedures to help fill a vacancy on the Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) related
to representation of Independent Special Districts by:

    1. Determine if any FCGMA Board members are interested in filling a vacancy on the Local Agency
       Formation Commission (LAFCO) to represent the Independent Special Districts.
    2. Consider adoption of a Resolution (2004-6) to be signed by the Chair nominating a


A Special District Selection Committee made up of representatives from the 29 independent special
districts within Ventura County has adopted a set of Rules and Regulations (R & R’s) concerning how
LAFCO vacancies are filled. These R & R’s provide that when a LAFCO Board member leaves or
completes their term of office, the Alternate automatically steps in to fill the vacancy for a new 4-year
term, and an election for a new Alternate must be held.

LAFCO is soliciting nominations to fill an upcoming opening for another Alternate for a term starting
January 1, 2005. The nominating process and election will be conducted by mail. If a nomination is
made by the FCGMA, a Resolution must be passed and submitted to LAFCO along with the candidates
name and 1-page resume to officially meet the required conditions. The deadline for such nominations is
October 1, 2004. Regular LAFCO meetings are held at 9:00 A.M. on the third Wednesday of each
month, except August and December.

The FCGMA is a “Special District”; therefore the FCGMA Board may designate one sitting Board
member to fill this impending vacancy, or may elect not to participate in this process at all.

If you have any questions, please call me at 648-9204.

Very truly yours,

Lowell Preston, Ph.D.
Agency Coordinator
