Sequoia Healthcare District MSR due from LAFCo

Original post made by Jack Hickey, Woodside: Emerald Hills, on Feb 11, 2013

The last Municipal Service Review for Healthcare Districts was adopted by The San Mateo County Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCo) in April of 2007. See: Web Link
Resolution No. 1003 amending the sphere of influence of Sequoia and Peninsula Health Care District was adopted on May 16,2007. See: Web Link

Government Code Section 56425 requires LAFCo to review and update spheres of influence on or before January 1, 2008 and every five years thereafter.

These reviews are important for determining whether Districts should be dissolved, combined, etc.

Readers who have been following the Sequoia Healthcare District topics in the Town Square Forum are invited to submit your suggestions to LAFCo. Contact Martha Poyatos at
