The Board will conduct a hearing to consider adoption of a resolution approving, authorizing and directing the execution of a financing agreement, approving the issuance of bonds and an official statement, and direction certain related actions in connection with the Marin Emergency Radio System (MERA) Project. MERA is a joint powers authority and a collection of public agencies, including the County, formed to provide and operate a public safety radio system. A parcel tax was approved by voters in November 2014 to create a next-generation emergency radio system to replace the one nearing the end of its useful life. The MERA board approved the issuance of the bonds and the execution of the financing agreement and other related documents at its March 23, 2016 meeting. State law requires a member agency adopt a resolution approving the issuance of the authority's bonds.
The Board adopted the resolution as presented.
