The county has made its final approvals to prepare for Huntington Beach's impending absorption of Sunset Beach.
The Orange County Board of Supervisors on Nov. 23 approved a pre-annexation agreement with the city over the small beach community. The Huntington Beach City Council approved the agreement Nov. 15.
The annexation now needs one final approval from the Orange County Local Agency Formation Commission, or LAFCO. The county agency can't deny Huntington's annexation application, only add terms or conditions, LAFCO officials have said.
