Los Angeles (LA) LAFCO Review and Hearing of BCHD
Wed., Sept. 14 at 9:00 a.m.
A Municipal Services Review (MSR) of Beach Cities Health District by LA LAFCO (Local Agency Formation Committee) is scheduled for Wed. Sept.14, at 9:00 a.m.
Why is it important? LAFCO is the state government organization that oversees special districts. They determine the boundaries of service and sphere of influence (the for the public district as well as review each district’s financial operations, services and related issues. This state-mandated review is timely, now that BCHD wants to EXPAND future services well beyond the beach cities of Redondo Beach, Hermosa Beach and Manhattan Beach.
BCHD was last reviewed by LA LAFCO in 2012, with no public comment.
LA LAFCO staff recommends a reduction in BCHD’s sphere of influence (SOI - a map of the long-term, ultimate service boundary of a district) to its actual jurisdictional border of only the three taxpaying cities that voted to establish the district in the 1950s.
Support LA LAFCO’s recommendation to reduce BCHD’s sphere of influence.
