Each year Marin LAFCO establishes a workplan in step with developing an operating budget for the fiscal year. The workplan is divided into two distinct categories – statutory and administrative – with one of three priority rankings: high, moderate, or low. The underlying intent of the workplan is to serve as a management tool to allocate Marin LAFCO’s resources in an accountable and transparent manner over the 12 month period. Further, while it is a stand-alone document, the workplan should be reviewed in relationship to the adopted operating budget given the planned goals and activities are facilitated and or limited accordingly.
The current workplan was adopted by Marin LAFCO as part of a noticed public hearing held on June 8, 2017 and continues to guide the Commission to prioritize resources in addressing statutory duties and responsibilities. Most notably this includes scheduling two comprehensive municipal service reviews involving the San Rafael/Lucas Valley and Novato regions.Commission-initiated reorganizations involving Murray Park and San Quentin Village Sewer Maintenance Districts are also scheduled. Notable new administrative projects include filling staff positions, performing policy updates, and establishing long-term bookkeeping and payroll protocols instep with the Commission’s recent transition to a stand-alone accounting system.
