Information on LAFCO
In the next few months, LAFCO (Local Agency Formation Commission) will be holding hearings called "Municipal Service Reviews" by County regions; the West County sub region will be on the agenda. If you are interested in getting out from under the Richmond Sphere of Influence or would like to see El Sobrante be a separate city, i.e. incorporated, please attend. The LAFCO meeting addressing this issue will likely be held in October 2008. Agendas go out about a week prior to the meeting. To get an agenda call LAFCO at 925-335-1094 or email Kate Sibley at "firstname.lastname@example.org" with a request to be put on the LAFCO agenda email alert list.
El Sobrante local resident, Patty Casentini is working on these issues. See her notice below and attend upcoming El Sobrante MAC meetings. ESMAC meetings are held the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 7PM in the meeting room behind the El Sobrante Library corner Garden Lane and Appian Way.
