Policies & Procedures 

Mendocino LAFCo Policies & Procedures Manual

State law requires that each LAFCO establish written policies and procedures and exercise its powers in a manner consistent with those policies and procedures. (Government Code Section 56300).

In 2018, Mendocino LAFCo formally adopted a comprehensive policy update involving Mendocino LAFCo’s administrative, regulatory, and planning functions. The resulting Policy & Procedures Manual serves as Mendocino LAFCo’s principal document.  The document serves to outline the standards, goals, strategies, and requirements in uniformly fulfilling its prescribed duties consistent with the collective preferences of the membership to promote and produce orderly local government responsive to local conditions. Nonetheless, Mendicino LAFCo reserves discretion in administering the Policy & Procedures Manual to remain responsive to unique and changing circumstances.
