Board Meeting Update

At its December 14th meeting, the newly elected Boardmembers, incumbents Jeff Brown and Jim Jacobs, were sworn in by Marin County Supervisor Stephanie Moulten-Peters. The Board also read a proclamation to thank Cyndie Martel for her years of service working for TCSD. The Board also took the following actions:

  • Adopted an ordinance establishing the new Parks and Recreation Commission to replace the previous Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission (applications for commissioners will be available in January)
  • Approved a new job description for the vacant Administrative Clerk position; the recruitment process will begin in January (the job notice will be posted on the TCSD website)
  • Adopted Rosenberg’s Rules of Order as the parliamentary procedures for TCSD Board and Commission meetings.
After the meeting, Board held its annual Holiday Gathering Event. If you missed it, plan on attending next December!
