COVID-19 Office Update

In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Butte LAFCo Office is closed to the public until such time the State or Butte County Public Health Department provides revised directions on shelter in place or social distancing guidelines.

Butte LAFCo staff will continue to work remotely and monitor and respond to all telephone and email inquiries to the extent possible. If you have an emergency or other absolutely urgent and essential business, please send a direct email to Executive Officer Stephen Lucas at: slucas@buttecounty.net

Please be advised that during this COVID-19 crisis, the Commission will have limited options to conduct fully accessible public meetings and hearings. For this reason, the Commission will endeavor to limit any digital or telephonic only meetings to absolutely critical and/or essential tasks.

The Commission appreciates the public’s adaptation and patience during this crisis and will refrain from placing non-essential items, or matters of significant public interest on the agenda until such time greater public participation can be reasonably accommodated. We do this in the spirit of transparency and accountability and apologize for any inconvenience this causes.
