Amador LAFCOThe mission of the Amador LAFCO is to implement the Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Local Government Reorganization Act of 2000 with an understandable and open public process leading to informed decisions.

Description of LAFCO

The Local Agency Formation Commission coordinates logical and timely changes in local governmental boundaries (§56001); conducts special studies which review ways to reorganize, simplify and streamline governmental structures (§56031); and prepares spheres of influence for each city and special district within the County (§56425). The Commission promotes provision of efficient and economical services while encouraging protection of agricultural and open space lands (§56001, §56300). Further efforts include discouraging urban sprawl and encouraging orderly formation and development of local agencies based upon local conditions and circumstances (§56301).

Local Agency Formation Commissions are independent commissions that are not a part of county government. Each Commissioner is independent when weighing and reviewing information and when making determinations (§56325.1 and Attorney General Opinion 98.802).
