NEFCO is organized as a four-county regional council of governments. Its Bylaws are written to allow for membership by the largest city within each member county. Dues are established by formula for each member of NEFCO. The staff reports to the agency’s Executive Director and the Executive Director reports to the General Policy Board. Regional planning commissions (RPC) are usually comprised of the local and county governments in the agency’s county(ies). The governing board is the county planning commission. A county planning department is typically one of a county’s departments and it reports to the board of county commissioners.
