Two of Sweetwater Authority’s Governing Board Members were recently appointed to local advisory committees for watershed restoration and local agency formation.
During its May 22, 2019, meeting the Authority’s Board appointed Director José F. Cerda to the Sweetwater River Watershed Advisory Panel. On June 12, 2019, Director Hector Martinez was appointed to serve on the San Diego Local Agency Formation Commission’s (LAFCO) Special Districts Advisory Committee.
The Sweetwater River Watershed Advisory Panel was created by the San Diego Rivers Watershed Consortium Program to work cooperatively with local public agencies to identify potential project funding to restore the Sweetwater River watershed.
LAFCO handles jurisdictional boundary changes including city incorporations, annexations, consolidations, and detachments. LAFCO’s Special Districts Advisory Committee meets quarterly and makes technical recommendations for the LAFCO Board to consider.
