1. Administrator's Report on COVID-19 Response

Preview

Shortly after the Board convenes at 9 a.m., the Board will hear a report from the County Administrator and possibly other County staff about the local COVID-19 response. The County proclaimed a local emergency and a public health emergency earlier in March, and staff has worked in an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to coordinate response efforts. A local shelter-in-place order was issued in March 16 to help limit the spread of COVID-19. 

Review

The County Administrator, Marin County Parks director, and Deputy Public Health Officer provided updates and answered several questions from the Board. The archived video should be available on the afternoon of March 24 and thereafter.

2. Moratorium on Evictions During COVID-19 Emergency

Preview

The Board will hear a request from the Community Development Agency to adopt a resolution barring evictions in Marin County due to the public health emergency arising from COVID-19. The resolution would temporarily augment the County’s existing ordinance that limits the reasons why a landlord can end a residential tenancy. The goal is to provide temporary protection to renters and commercial lease holders whose residency and businesses may be jeopardized by the loss of income related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Review

The Board adopted the resolution.

3. Safety Net Relief Fund for COVID-19 Response

Preview

The Board will hear a request from the County Administrator to approve a one-time emergency appropriation of $1 million for safety net response efforts related to COVID-19, including $500,000 contributed from the Marin Community Foundation (MCF). The County proposes to match MCF from its General Fund to address some of the most urgent safety-net needs for local residents. The fund will be allocated over the next two months to soften the social and economic impacts of the pandemic.

Review

The Board approved the appropriation.
