2. Vineyard Erosion and Sediment Control

Preview

The Board will hear a request from the Agricultural Commissioner/Director of Weights and Measures to receive a report on the value and effectiveness of the County’s Vineyard Erosion and Sediment Control (VESCO) Program. The VESCO ordinance was approved in 2011 and and safeguards the public health, safety and welfare of Marin residents by minimizing erosion and sedimentation in connection with vineyards. Since the ordinance's adoption, the County has only received one application to develop a new vineyard of five acres. It was approved and completed in 2016. 

Review

The board received the report.

3. Tentative Bargaining Agreement with Nurses Union

Preview

The Board will hear a request from Human Resources to approve a tentative agreement with the Service Employees’ International Union (SEIU) 1021 Nurses, for a successor 2-year Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA). The tentative agreement would result in incremental costs increases of $261,672 this fiscal year and $241,403 in 2018-19. The two-year agreement reflects many of the County's long-term priorities, which includes elimination of the County's contribution toward the employee's share of pension costs, providing market-based equity adjustments to salaries, and updating health benefits.

Review

The Board approved the request for a tentative agreement with the Service Employees’ International Union (SEIU) 1021 Nurses, for a successor 2-year Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).
