Hearings

The LAFCO is scheduled to meet every fourth Thursday of the month at 8:30 a.m. except when a meeting need not be held.  Meeting locations are conducted at the City of El Centro Board Chambers located at 1275 Main Street, El Centro, CA, unless otherwise posted. However this does not prevent the Commission from holding public hearings at other locations, such as city council chambers, chamber of commerce auditoriums, general or multi-purpose public auditoriums, as long as all facilities allow public access for the disabled, and are equipped (or capable of being equipped) with an adequate sound system and recording system.  All such locations shall be duly noticed well in advance of a hearing to allow the general public sufficient time to become aware of and participate in the hearings.

Notice of public hearings shall be published and posted pursuant to the Cortese-Knox-Hertzberg Reorganization Act, and at a minimum shall include publication in the Imperial Valley Press, posting at the LAFCO Office, posting outside the meeting chambers, and direct mail to affected property owners to the extent required.
