Highlights of the January 15, 2019 Board Meeting:
After convening at 9 a.m., the Board will hear a request from the Community Development Agency to approve a transfer of $4.1 million in one-time general funds to the Marin County Housing Trust Fund to be used to increase the stock of affordable homes through acquisition, preservation, and construction. Since 1980, the fund has provided financial and technical assistance to help affordable housing developers create and preserve affordable housing for low- and very-low-income households. The use of the Housing Trust is designed to advance the values of a balanced community by providing support for a variety of housing types available for households at a range of income levels. In the past three years during Marin's housing crisis, the County has invested nearly $5.9 million of Housing Trust funds to fund up to 241 affordable homes.
The Board approved the transfer of funds.

The Board will hear an informational report from the Marin County Human Rights Commission. In November, the commission authored a letter that recommended the County be declared as a "sanctuary county" and that the County take steps to prevent the Sheriff from making public the information about jail release names, dates, and times, and to stop providing the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials with that information, either publicly or privately. The commission’s mission is to promote a community based on social justice, with equality for all, and to eliminate discrimination based on race, religion, color, age, ancestry, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, place of birth, national origin, or disability. The commission provides a public forum, serves as a resource to the community, and advises the Board of Supervisors on human rights issues.
The Board heard the report.
