2. Office Space Renovations

Preview

The Board will hear a request from the County Administrator to authorize the transfer of $1.7 million in available funds for office space renovations at 1600 Los Gamos Drive in San Rafael, known as the Emergency Operations Facility, to close out the leased space at 899 Northgate Drive in San Rafael. The Marin County Sheriff's Office, the County emergency dispatch center and other County offices are located at 1600 Los Gamos; personnel from Health and Human Services work at 899 Northgate. Staff recommends that the Board authorize the Department of Finance to transfer remaining project funds and authorize staff to utilize property manager Sares Regis to complete additional office space renovations at 1600 Los Gamos. Approval would allow a savings of $710,000 annually in gross rent and operating expenses at 899 Northgate.

Review

The Board authorized the transfer of funds.
