  1. Open Time for Items Not on the Agenda (Information Item)
  2. Review Proposed Zone 6 FYs 2024-26 Baseline Budget (Action Item)

The County Administrator’s Office requested that the zones establish 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 AB and District BOS to adjust the budget as needed. As usual, the approved budget may always be adjusted as priorities for the coming fiscal year are more clearly identified.

Recommended Action: Recommend the District Board of Supervisors approve the proposed baseline budgets for Zone 6 for FYs 2024-26.

Advisory board reports the following issues to be discussed:

    • Gutter loss and bird baths in local streets
    • Merrydale dumping – along street and ditch
    • Inconsistent ditch cleaning – concerns about frequency, quality, and lack of notification
    • Sonoma Marin Area Rail Transit (SMART) drainage – review conditions and relationship with City and SMART
