Highlights of the December 10, 2019 Board Meeting:
Shortly after convening at 9 a.m., Board will hear a request from the County Administrator to approve a proposed 2020 Federal and State Legislative Programs and proposed 2020 Legislative Policy Guidelines. The plan gives staff the opportunity to react quickly to legislative issues consistent with the Board's priorities and policy guidelines. It includes input from County departments, our federal and state lobbyists, the Transportation Authority of Marin, Marin Transit District, Sonoma-Marin Area Rail Transit and the Board of Supervisors. Key priorities heading into 2020 include emergency preparedness, continuing safety net services for our most vulnerable residents, mitigating climate change and enhancing resilience, and preserving or enhancing affordable housing opportunities.
The Board approved the legislative programs and guidelines.

The Board will hear a report from the County Administrator's Office staff about the fiscal year 2020-22 budget process. In June 2018, the Board approved a $474 million General Fund budget and a $631 million all-funds budget. The General Fund budget included new one-time investments in roads, facilities, affordable housing, emergency preparedness measures, and climate change adaptations. As we head into the next budget, the Board has identified several high priorities, including investments in County infrastructure, improving disaster preparedness, preserving and creating affordable housing, addressing sea level rise and climate change, and prioritize racial equity. Those priorities will help inform the budget team's recommended allocations. Budget instructions have been distributed to all County departments as updates are formed over the next few months. The Board plans to formally adopt a 2020-22 budget in June 2020.
The Board accepted the report and approved the next steps for the 2020-22 budget.

The Board will hear a request from the Department of Public Works to receive an update on the Muir Woods Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the National Park Service regarding parking restrictions. An MOU was adopted by the Board in 2015, and a parking reservation system was launched in 2018. The agreement's milestones have been met by all parties over the first two years. Reservations are required on all personal vehicles, shuttles and commercial tours for Muir Woods National Monument. The restrictions have significantly reduced roadside parking and improved safety in the area. The County and the National Park Service are committed to meet future milestones and report publicly to all stakeholders.
The Board received the update and accepted the report.
