2. Tribute to Sheriff Doyle / Welcome Sheriff Scardina

Preview

Agenda Item #1 and #7: At 8:30 a.m., the Board will hear a request to adopt a resolution honoring Sheriff Robert Doyle for his 52 years of service with the County of Marin. Later, under Agenda Item #7, the Board will hear a request to appoint Undersheriff Jamie Scardina as Sheriff effective July 19. Doyle, who is retiring, joined the Sheriff's Office in 1969 just after serving in the Vietnam War. He was named Undersheriff in 1988 and appointed Sheriff in 1996. He has served as Sheriff-Coroner since 2010. Scardina ran unopposed in the June 2022 election and became Acting Sheriff on July 1 upon Doyle's resignation. Staff recommends that the Board formally appoint Scardina to serve the remainder of Doyle's term until Scardina's term begins January 2, 2023.

3. Proposed Library Parcel Tax

Agenda Item #9: The Board will hear a request from the Marin County Free Library (MCFL) to adopt a resolution to place an MCFL parcel tax renewal on the local election ballot for November 8, 2022. In June 2014, voters in the MCFL district renewed a $49 annual parcel tax (plus annual cost-of-living adjustments) to support library resources. The tax measure expires June 30, 2024. The proposed renewal would be an increase to $98 per parcel, for nine years, with a senior exemption and Consumer Price Index adjustment not to exceed 3% annually.

Review

The Board adopted the resolution.

5. San Geronimo Valley Stream Conservation Area Ordinance

Agenda Item #15: No earlier than 1:30 p.m., the Board will hear a request from the Community Development Agency (CDA) to adopt an ordinance to amend the Marin County Code Title 22 (Development Code) for the Stream Conservation Area for San Geronimo Valley (SGV) and adopt a separate ordinance to rezone all lots within San Geronimo Valley to the new SGV combining district. The SCA protects nature and regulates human-made improvements to property in that rural portion of unincorporated Marin. The ordinances would maintain a conservative approach and further environmental mandates while remaining consistent with the Countywide Plan.

The Board adopted both ordinances.
