Open Seat on Countywide Priority Setting Committee

The County of Marin is recruiting a new District 2 member for its Countywide Priority Setting Committee, which advises the Marin County Board of Supervisors on grant spending for projects and programs that benefit some of Marin’s lowest-income residents. The committee oversees the distribution of federal money through the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) and HOME Investment Partnerships Program (HOME).  Deadline for applications has been extended to October 11 at 4pm.


Planning staff with the County’s Community Development Agency anticipate that it will receive roughly $2.2 million in funds for distribution to nonprofits and local governments. These funds are used to support affordable housing, public service projects, and capital improvements for community infrastructure such as parks, community centers, and health clinics.


Currently there is a committee opening for a representative from the upper Ross Valley -- Fairfax, Ross, San Anselmo, and adjacent unincorporated neighborhoods such as Sleepy Hollow – for a two-year term.


Applications can be downloaded from the federal grants webpage. Questions may be directed to 415-473-6279 or emailed to the County’s federal grants staff. Read the recent press release to learn more.

Open Seat on County Assessment Appeals Board

The Marin County Board of Supervisors is seeking applications from candidates with expertise in real estate, accounting, law, or property appraisal to fill an opening on the Marin County Assessment Appeals Boards.


Appointed by the BOS, members of the Assessment Appeals Boards hear appeals by property owners regarding value assessments by the County Assessor’s Office. In recent years, the caseload of the state-mandated Assessment Appeals Board has necessitated hearings about every four weeks. There are two separate Appeals Boards, each with three members, and appeals are heard alternately by the two boards.


Candidates must have a minimum of five years of professional experience in California as a CPA or public accountant, a licensed real estate broker, an attorney, a property appraiser accredited by a nationally recognized professional organization, by the Office of Real Estate Appraisers or by the State Board of Equalization.


Additional information is also available on the State Board of Equalization website. Apply online or learn more about the application process by calling the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors at 415-473-7331. You can request an application form via email or in writing at Clerk of the Board of Supervisors, Suite 329, 3501 Civic Center Drive, San Rafael CA 94903. Visit the website and read the recent press release to learn more.
