The Board may elect to take formal action on any of the items listed below.







Proposed Fiscal Year 2023-24 Baseline Budget (Action Item)

The County Administrator’s Office requested that the zones recommend a baseline budget for the beginning of each fiscal year that does not include major project expenses. Baseline budgets are intended to be relatively consistent year to year. Major project expenditures will require separate actions from the Advisory Board and District BOS to adjust the budget as needed. As usual, the approved budget may always be adjusted as necessary as priorities and cost estimates for projects and studies planned for this coming fiscal year are more clearly identified. The Proposed Flood Zone 9 Baseline Budget for FY 2023-2024 is attached to this agenda and can be viewed at:



As recommended by the Advisory Board on April 25, 2022, a loan was requested from Marin County Department of Finance on May 17, 2022, to fund project construction costs and any related construction support services. The loan was in the amount of $5,000,000 for a two-year term with an annual interest rate of 4.25%. The loan will be repaid in full, including interest in the amount of $339,976, by June 15, 2024. See the Staff Report to the Board of Supervisors here:



Recommended Action: Recommend the District Board of Supervisors adopt the proposed Zone 9 Baseline Budget for FY 2023-24.
