The El Centro City Council is scheduled to hear an update on new state requirements regarding the city's participation in the Local Agency Formation Commission.
The City Council's open session begins at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at 1275 Main St.
Under the new law, the county's cities are required to pay half of LAFCO's expenses, with the county paying the other half. Under the formula used to split the costs among the cities, El Centro's share is estimated at $14,109.84, or 56.1 percent of the cities' half. The estimated budget for LAFCO for 1999-2000 is $50,300.
The new law, Assembly Bill 2838, includes significant changes that will affect LAFCO operations and how it processes projects, according to a letter from the county's Planning Department to the city.
The City Council will conduct a public hearing to consider the sale of property in the city's Redevelopment Agency project area. The properties are at 1203 S. Industrial Way and 866 and 898 Ross Ave.
