Review – Wrap Up of the last Board meeting on August 7th:

 

Volunteers Program Grand Jury Response Adopted

On May 29th, the Marin County Civil Grand Jury published a report entitled: “Civic Center Volunteers Program – The Goose That Lays the Golden Egg”, which included a number of findings and recommendations related to how the County manages its volunteers program.  Per the requirements of state law, the Board adopted a formal response to the report.

Community Plan Update Strategy Adopted

Sixteen communities in Marin County are presently guided by community plans containing area-specific policies related to issues like land use, design, and environmental quality.  Due to current budget and staffing constraints, the Board authorized a strategic approach to efficiently developing or updating these plans.  Particular emphasis shall be placed on those communities demonstrating interest and commitment to such a process.

Parks Funding Measure Set for November Ballot

On Wednesday, July 25, the Board held a special meeting and authorized revisions to an ordinance and spending plan that will place a countywide ¼ cent sales tax increase on the November 6th ballot to fund parks, open space and agricultural land preservation in Marin County.  After conducting a final hearing, the Board gave the final go-ahead in order to bring the measure to Marin voters in November.

Immunization Fee Changes Adopted

On July 24th, the Board took the first step in authorizing a change in the fee that is charged for immunizations to ensure they are consistent with Medi-Cal reimbursement rates.  Federal law prohibits clinics from charging clients less than the amount paid by Medi-Cal for that service. The current fee to administer a vaccine to those with an ability to pay is $10, and staff proposes to increase that fee to $17.  After conducting a final hearing, the Board authorized the fee change.

Update on County Innovation Program

Last year, the County launched several pilot programs designed to promote and reward innovative ideas with the goal of enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of Marin County government services, lowering ongoing costs, and creating staffing efficiencies.  The Board will hear an update on the second round of the Innovation Grants Program, which awarded $73,157 in one-time funds for three separate projects that are estimated to achieve $100,000 in annual on-going savings as well as save considerable amounts of staff time.  Projects included a new electronic ticketing system for Marin Center events, a new records management and training system for the Fire Department, and electronic poll books for the Elections Department.
