Who pays for LAFCos?

State law establishes a "pay-to-play" formula in terms of funding  LAFCos. Any local agency whose council or board members are eligible to  be commissioners must contribute funds to their LAFCos budget. In Nevada County, there are 24 Special Districts, two city agencies (City  of Grass Valley and Nevada City), one town (Town of Truckee), and one  county (Nevada County) who are responsible for the LAFCo's operational  costs. Each agency pays a share which is proportional to it's general  tax revenue.
