The Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO) of Tuolumne County was established by state law in 1963 to discourage urban sprawl and encourage the orderly formation and development of local government agencies. There is a LAFCO in each of the 58 counties of California.
LAFCO is responsible for coordinating logical changes in local government boundaries including annexations and detachments of territory, incorporations of cities, formations, consolidations, mergers, and dissolutions of special districts, as well as reviewing ways to reorganize, simplify, and streamline government structure.
