Agenda Item #1: Shortly after convening this special meeting at 9 a.m., the Board will hear a request from Marin County Parks to introduce an ordinance to extend a quarter-cent retail transactions and use tax for parks, open space, and farmland preservation. Measure A was approved in 2012 and has supported ongoing wildfire fuel reduction work, upgraded roads and trails, well-maintained parks, reduced entrance fees, and much more. The existing Measure A expires in March 2022. Staff recommends that the Board introduce the proposed ordinance extending Parks Measure A for nine years and schedule a public merit hearing for 10 a.m. July 13 to consider its options. The potential timing of a ballot measure is uncertain.
The Board heard latest developments on the September 2021 recall election of the governor and associated guidance for local governments on that election, then took no action.
