Flood Control District 9 update

Fairfax representative to the Flood Zone 9 Advisory Board, Council Member David Weinsoff, reported that at the recent annual meeting of the Board, the annual budget was approved, including the expenditure of existing revenue of $320,704 on flood control measures – primarily for maintenance. Further, the District bylaws were amended to include Fairfax and San Anselmo as new members of the District. The Board also heard a presentation on the status of the Army Corps of Engineers’ flood control projects, and learned that the Corps is specifically prohibited by Federal law from undertaking work upstream of the Town of Ross. Council Member Weinsoff is maintaining a public file on meetings and activities of the Flood Control Zone 9 Advisory Board, which is available to the community upon request.
