Highlights of the July 23, 2019 Board Meeting:
At no earlier than 10:30a.m., the Board will conduct a public hearing to consider a Mill Valley Refuse Service-requested rate increase of 3.64 percent for the unincorporated Southern Marin franchise service areas. Factors contributing to the rate adjustment request include: (a) rising labor costs; (b) required replacement of two garbage trucks to meet California state emission standards; and (c) the addition of a new compost route to meet commercial food waste collection regulations prescribed in California Assembly Bill 1826 and Senate Bill 1383. In addition, Mill Valley Refuse Service will transition customers from commingled recycling to dual-stream recycling, a transition that was previously approved. The areas affected by the proposed rate increase include unincorporated neighborhoods near Mill Valley and Tiburon known as Shoreline and Gibson, Paradise Cay, Paradise, and Mar East. There are approximately 800 residential and commercial customers in the franchise area.

The Board will conduct a public hearing regarding the continuation of the Rush Creek Landscaping and Lighting District and consider a resolution to confirm the assessment for the Rush Creek Landscaping and Lighting District (LLD). On June 16, the Board adopted a resolution of intention to continue maintenance and operation of the Rush Creek Landscaping and Lighting District on the east side of Novato. As required by the Streets and Highways Code, the Board must now conduct a public information meeting, allowing an opportunity for the public to ask questions about the district and the $949 annual assessment. The Engineer's Report for the LLD recommends no change in the current assessment of $949 per year (for fiscal year 2019-2020) for the 89 homes that fall within the LLD.

The Board will conduct a Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act (TEFRA) hearing about a request for up to $10 million of tax-exempt conduit obligations for the benefit of Waste Management, Inc., to finance improvements to existing, permitted solid waste landfill facilities at Redwood Landfill within Marin County. Federal law requires a public hearing before the Board to any bond issuance by the California Enterprise Development Authority for projects under the County's jurisdiction. Staff recommends that the Board conduct the hearing and consider adopting a resolution approving the issuance of bonds.

At no earlier than 1:30 p.m., the Board will review the Medicinal Cannabis Delivery Only Retailer ("MCDORe") applications and decide how best to issue the four available MCDORe licenses. On November 14, 2017, the Board adopted Ordinance 3678 which established a regulatory framework to license up to four MCDORe's in the unincorporated areas of the county in order to meet the medical needs of, and expand options for, patients to access medicinal cannabis. Four applicants submitted their Site Review applications in May for the final phase of the selection process. Options for issuing MCDORe licenses include: (a) approving the issuance of four separate licenses; (b) approving the issuance of one license and authorize the Community Development Agency to conduct a lottery for an additional license; or (c) deny the issuance of any licenses.
