Marin LAFCO Central Marin Wastewater Study Comment Period Is Open Through June 30


Local Agency Formation Commissions (LAFCOs) are directed by legislature to regularly prepare municipal service reviews in conjunction with establishing and updating each local agency’s sphere of influence. Marin LAFCO has announced the issuance of a draft report prepared as part of a scheduled municipal service review on wastewater services in Central Marin; an approximate 60-square mile area that includes seven public agencies. The underlying purpose of the study is to independently assess the relationship and influencing factors therein in Central Marin between public wastewater demands versus collection, treatment, and disposal capacities relative to Marin LAFCO’s regional growth management duties under State law. Information generated in the study will (a) guide subsequent sphere updates, (b) inform future boundary changes, and (c) if merited serve as the source document to initiate one or more government reorganizations.  


The public comment period is open through June 30, 2017.  Comments on the  study should be directed to LAFCO Executive Officer Keene Simonds at ksimonds@marinlafco.org.  The Commission will discuss all input received at its next regular meeting scheduled for Thursday, June 8, 2017.


The Notice of Review and Executive Summary of the study is available on the Marin LAFCO website via the following link: http://lafco.marin.org/PDF/MarinLAFCO_CentralMarinWastewaterMSR_4-17-17.pdf
