The County proclaimed a local COVID-19 emergency and a public health emergency in early March 2020, and since then the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and other County staff has coordinated public response efforts. Public Health staff is closely watching cases traced to emerging COVID-19 variants as well as monkeypox.

3. Conduit Bonds for Redwood Landfill

Preview

Agenda Item #7: The Board will hear a request from the County Administrator’s Office to conduct a Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act (TEFRA) public hearing about the issuance of $355,000,000 of tax-exempt conduit bonds for improvements to existing landfill facilities for the benefit of Waste Management, Inc., in an amount not expected to exceed $5,000,000, for a project located within the County of Marin at the Redwood Landfill. TEFRA public hearings are required by the federal government to approve the issuance of tax-exempt debt. The hearing gives the public an opportunity to comment on the use of the tax-exempt funds by the borrowing institution to finance its capital needs. The landfill is just north of the Novato city limits. Staff recommends that the Board adopt a resolution approving the financing through the California Municipal Finance Authority.

Review

The board held the hearing and adopted the resolution.
