3. Urgency Item: Health Code Enforcement and Penalties

Preview

In an urgency item, the Board will consideration an urgency ordinance to adopt administrative penalties for the violation of the County Health Officer’s Orders pertaining to the COVID-19 pandemic. Towns and cities in Marin were interested in joining the County with enhanced enforcement of public health orders to help curtail the virus' spread. A new task force would collaborate with city and town personnel to focus on business violations throughout the county. The civil penalty for noncommercial health code violations related to COVID-19 would be between $25 and $500. For commercial activity, it would be $250 to $10,000. 

Review

The Board approved the urgency ordinance.
