1. Volunteers Program Grand Jury Response to be Considered
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 will consider adopting a formal response to the report.

2. Community Plan Update Strategy to be Considered
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 will consider authorizing a strategic approach to efficiently developing or updating these plans. Particular emphasis would be placed on those communities demonstrating interest and commitment to such a process.

3. Final Decisions on Parks Funding Measure to Take Place
On Wednesday, July 25, the Board held a special meeting and okayed 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. A final hearing on the merits of the proposal will now take place, which will be the final go-ahead before bringing the measure to Marin voters in November.

4. Final Actions on Immunization Fee Changes
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. The Board will now conduct a final hearing on the merits of the proposal.
