3. PROTEST HEARING
The Shasta Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) approved the Shasta Community Services
District Annexation, County Service Area #25 Keswick Dissolution at a public hearing on February 7,
2019. Approval triggered a 30-day reconsideration period which ended March 11, 2019 without a
reconsideration request, followed by this protest hearing.
The protest hearing is conducted to allow landowners and registered voters within the affected territory
to file a written protest against the Commission’s action with the Executive Officer. Pursuant to State
law, an election would be called if 25-50% of registered voters protest or 25% or more of landowner’s
protest. The 25% threshold for landowner protest refers to both the number of owners and the
assessed value of land. Furthermore, the detachment would be terminated if 50% or more of
registered voters protest in accordance with this notice. Protest forms are available at the Shasta
LAFCO office or online at the Shasta LAFCo website.
The Shasta LAFCO Executive Officer will conduct the protest hearing as follows:
A. Describe the proposal and purpose of the hearing
B. Summarize Shasta LAFCO Resolution approving the annexation/dissolution
C. Open the hearing
D. Receive any oral or written protests, objections or evidence
E. Note all written protests received prior to the hearing
F. Close the hearing
G. Determine the value of written protests filed and not withdrawn
The next regular meeting of the Commission will be held on April 4, 2019, at 1:00 PM at Anderson
City Hall. At the meeting, the Executive Officer will present the results of the protest hearing. Based
on the number of valid written protests received, the detachment will either be confirmed, terminated,
or subject to an election.
