2. Civil Grand Jury Response on Building Electrification

Agenda Item #7: After convening at 9 a.m., but no earlier than 10:30 a.m., the Board will hear a request from the County Administrator for Board concurrence and adoption of a response to a 2021-22 Grand Jury Report titled “Electrifying Marin’s Buildings: A Countywide Approach” (June 6, 2022). County staff agreed with five findings and disagreed partially with one finding. Two recommendations have been not implemented but may be in the future, and one requires further analysis. Staff recommends that the Board concur in and thereby adopt response and direct the Board President to submit the response to the presiding judge.
