Applications are being accepted from the public for two open positions on the San Luis Obispo Local Agency Formation Commission, an independent agency of local county, city and special district officials.
Among its duties, LAFCO considers annexation requests and sets so-called spheres of influence, or areas that become the logical boundary for a local jurisdiction.
The board has seven members and four alternates, including two people who represent the public, Richard Roberts and Tom Murray. Their terms will end in December.
LAFCO is taking applications to fill the regular and alternate positions, according to a news release. The four-year terms run through December 2016.

An appointment will likely be made in October or November, said David Church, LAFCO executive officer.

Applicants must be San Luis Obispo County residents, be able to regularly attend LAFCO meetings and must not be current elected or appointed officers or employees of the county, or any city or special district in the county.
Regular commission meetings are on the third Thursday of each month at 9 a.m. in the county Board of Supervisors’ chambers in downtown San Luis Obispo.
The public member of LAFCO is considered a public official and is required to file a standard financial disclosure statement annually with the California Fair Political Practices Commission.
