Effective December 7, 2018, the Local Agency Guidelines for Certified Local Public Agencies supersedes and replaces the Local Agency Guidelines Manual. An archived version of the old LAG manual will be accessible on this page for approximately two years, but will no longer be updated with new references or hyperlinks.
