County Service Area 6 (CSA #6):

The County of Marin Department of Public Works manages County Service Area #6 (CSA #6) for the Gallinas Creek community. This CSA is governed by the Marin County Board of Supervisors which appoints a five-member board to the CSA #6 Advisory Board. The Advisory Board advises the Board of Supervisors on all matters relating to projects, programs, and budgets of CSA #6.

The CSA #6 boundary includes properties along the south fork of the Gallinas Creek extending downstream to Bucks Landing off North San Pedro Road, including the Marin Lagoon neighborhood properties. A portion of the basic property tax (ad valorem tax) is secured for CSA #6 from the properties in the CSA #6 boundary to raise funds for periodic dredging of the main creek channel for recreational boating purposes, including a smaller channel around Santa Margarita Island. Prior dredging episodes occurred in 1966, 1973, 1981, and 1992-1994.

County Service Area 29 (CSA #29):

CSA #29 is comprised of parcels of real estate within the Paradise Cay community, located near Tiburon, that have canal access. CSA #29 was created by the Marin County Board of Supervisors to allow residents to pass special assessments and/or special taxes to fund projects beneficial to the CSA, including dredging of the canals and waterways used by residents. Special taxes are levied upon parcels of real estate within a defined area for a specific purpose or project and are collected as part of your annual property tax bill.

Revenue from the special tax is used to remove naturally deposited silt and mud from the canals and waterways in Paradise Cay. Removing silt and mud increases the depth of the waterways and enhances their recreational use by providing navigable access to watercrafts. Sediment removal in CSA #29 occurs approximately every five years.
