The Orange County LAFCO is composed of seven voting members, with four alternate members who vote only in the absence of a voting member. The seven members and their alternates represent all levels of local government. Two members are elected county supervisors and are appointed by the Board of Supervisors. Two members are elected city council members and are appointed by the City Selection Committee. Two members are elected members of a special district board of directors and are appointed by the Special Districts Selection Committee. These six elected officials appoint a “public” member who is not affiliated with county, city, or special district governments. Alternate members for the county, city, special district, and public categories are appointed in the same manner. Each of the commissioners serves a four-year term.
