TCSD Board Meeting Summary

At its April 12th meeting, the Board took the following actions:
  • Appointed all five members to the newly formed Parks and Recreation Commission (PARC).
  • Conducted a community informational meeting on proposed rate increases of solid waste service charges for the next five years. We are proposing a 2% increase per year in rates. We believe that many, if not all, of the other Marin communities will experience much higher increases and, as a result, their rates will be very similar to TCSD rates at the end of the five-year period (FY27-28).
  • Received a presentation from Southern Marin Fire Protection District (SMFD) regarding potential locations for a long-range acoustic device (LRAD siren) in Eastwood Park.
  • Discussed the TCSD Communications and Events Plan for 2023.
  • Approved an updated solid waste and wastewater billing adjustment policy.
  • Authorized the General Manager to proceed with the installation of a new security system and fire/smoke alarm system for TCSD facilities.

TCSD Mailbox

Just a friendly reminder that the only thing that belongs in the mailbox outside of the TCSD office is mail! Sometimes we find surprises inside like medication and batteries. Not so fun...so please remember that we have a battery collection bucket outside the office all day.

We are open Monday through Friday from 8am-4:30pm.
Call 415-388-6393 and make an appointment to drop off e-waste and medication.

Thank you!
Senior Bingo!

Our Bingo Bunch had a lovely spring pot luck last Wednesday. This group is growing every week! Join us in the Community Center every Wednesday from 11am-1pm for good times and great food!

Fire Safe Marin Update

Protecting your home from wildfire is an ongoing process. As you do your spring cleaning, think about how your landscaping impacts your home. The most important thing you can do to protect your home is to clear combustible materials from the first 5 ft around your house. Then, if a wildfire blows burning embers your way, there is nothing next to your home to ignite. This is called Zone 0 and can be part of a beautiful, fire safe yard. Adapting to wildfire means being prepared.
