       for FY 2002-2003 pending your Board’s formal adoption of the FY 2002-2003 County
       Budget.

Introduction

In presenting the Proposed FY 2002-2003 County Budget to your Board, I would like to thank
you and all Department Heads and their staff for cooperatively developing a spending plan for
next fiscal year that reflects service priorities in an environment of reduced available resources
and future uncertainties. This Proposed Budget represents at this writing our best judgments
regarding the appropriate allocation of financial resources given the revenues the County can
expect to receive over the next fiscal year. Due to the substantial reliance of the County’s Budget
on the State budget process, the FY 2002-2003 Proposed Budget is influenced by the
uncertainties of the State Budget. Notwithstanding this uncertainty, the County’s Proposed
Budget remains as a vehicle to provide public information about the County’s program for next
fiscal year and is designed to solicit public input for your consideration at the budget hearings.
The Auditor-Controller and the IST Director and their respective staff members are to be
commended for their technical assistance in preparing this year’s budget proposals.

Strategic Approach to the FY 2002-2003 Budget

As indicated above, this year’s Proposed Budget is overshadowed by uncertainties surrounding
the resolution of the State Budget crisis. Although Marin County’s FY 2002-2003 spending plan
is balanced, the current and future state budget picture means that there is a substantial risk of
revenue reductions from State sources during the next and future fiscal years. Consequently, the
following goals have directed our development of the FY 2002-2003 budget:
    •    Make budget decisions that are consistent with Marin County’s Strategic Plan.
    •    Recommend funding for high priority program needs.
    •    In the short term, maintain baseline budgets to stabilize service delivery systems.
    •    Develop contingency plans for a possible reduction in State revenues.
    •    Prepare County departments to undertake a review of the baseline budget over the next
         six months.

Based on these goals, this Proposed Budget is recommending maintaining baseline services and
funding selected high priority projects at this time. It is expected that actions of the State and a
need to reconcile long-term program costs with projected local revenues will require the County
to carefully reexamine its budget later next fiscal year. Appropriate reserves are identified in this
Proposed Budget to assist with this transition. Given these caveats, the General Fund Proposed
Budget of $302.3 million will provide for the following:
    •    Maintenance of Current Service Levels in all County Programs.
    •    35 Budget Change Proposals (BCPs) requested by departments totaling approximately
         $650,000 in net County costs for FY 2002-2003 and the addition of 8.75 positions.
    •    $650,000 supplemental allocation for maintenance of County roads.
    •    $700,000 for various short-term capital improvement projects.
    •    $500,000 for the last stage of seismic upgrades to the Marin County Civic Center.
    •    $250,000 for Marin Center capital projects.
    •    $200,000 for Breast Cancer Research Initiatives.
    •    $50,000 for Energy Conservation Initiatives.

This year’s proposed budget was not able to respond to many requests due to the need to
prioritize very limited resources and the anticipation of possible further revenue reductions due to
the State budget dilemma. It is also important to note that in light of future budget constraints,
many departments either withdrew BCP requests or restructured their baseline budgets to
accommodate high priority BCP projects at little or no net County cost.

Overview of Proposed Budget

The Proposed Budget for FY 2002-2003 is supported by $277.1 million in General Fund
revenues, $302.4 million in revenues for all funds (Table 1), and $31.6 million in fund balances
and equity transfers. For the General Fund, budget-to-budget revenues will increase by 3.9%.
Revenues for all funds will increase budget-to-budget by 3.4%.

Factors Affecting the FY 2002-2003 Budget

This year’s Proposed Budget is the fifth consecutive budget that maintains or enhances current
County programming. Factors leading to this result include: a significant year-end fund balance,
careful departmental management of budgets, and a prudent management of past years’ revenue
opportunities.

Fiscal Management. County Department managers and staff have worked diligently through the
fiscal year to continue to deliver a high level of services while staying within budget targets. The
continuous budget review with the Administrator’s office, the Auditor’s office, and departments
resulted in achieving a significant FY 2001-2002 year-end savings (carry over fund balance) of
$25.2 million that will be available for the FY 2002-03 budget.

Economy. The economy has produced mixed results for Marin County’s budget. A continuing
strong local real estate market has contributed to increases in property tax revenues. However,
local sales tax, vehicle license fee offset and transient occupancy tax revenues have not
experienced the growth of the past few years. Revenues from State sales tax sources for public
safety and health and social service programs have also not kept pace with performance in recent
years. Due to record low short-term interest rates, interest earnings are significantly below
earnings of the previous year. In addition, the continuing poor performance of the investment
markets will likely result in increased costs of the County’s contribution to its employee
retirement system in FY 2003-2004.

State Budget. The State of California is currently experiencing its largest revenue decline in more
than 50 years. A recent report by the State Legislative Analyst’s Office estimates the State
General Fund budget shortfall for the two year period FY 2001-2002 and FY 2002-2003 at more
than $22 billion. The Governor’s May 14th Budget Revision accounts for a two-year deficit of
$23.6 billion. This estimated shortfall is due mainly to increased unemployment, slowing
personal income growth and a sharp drop in tax receipts from capital gains and stock options.
Many other states and the Federal government are also facing tax revenue declines.

In the Governor’s May Revision to his January budget, he proposed a combination of spending
reductions, spending deferrals, accelerations of revenue receipts and refinancing of debt to
address the projected deficits that are twice as large as the budget shortfalls of the early 1990’s.
The May budget now calls for a number of budget reductions that negatively impact current


County of Marin FY 2002-2003 Proposed Budget                                                   Page 3
County revenues. In particular, this budget calls for $1.1 billion reduction in the financial support
of health, mental health and social service programs as well as deferrals for state mandate claims,
Williamson Act subventions, and cost shifts for family support programs. A very conservative
estimate of this budget’s negative impact on the County in FY 2002-2003 is $4.2 million and $6.3
million in FY 2003-2004. This impact could be significantly greater if reduced programs are
supported by Federal or State matching dollars. At the time of this report, each house of the State
Legislature has prepared its own version of the budget and those results have been referred to a
Conference Committee for resolution of differences. The major issue facing the Legislature is
how to come up with a reasonable balance of spending reductions and revenue increases that will
not significantly compromise delivery of health care and other critical services.

A particularly egregious recommendation in the May Revision would require the expenditure of
discretionary county general fund resources to pay half of California’s federally imposed penalty
of $89 million (assuming a 50% requested waiver is granted) for the State’s inability over the past
few years to implement a federally-certified statewide computer system for child support
collections. This would cost Marin County at least $286,000 annually for several years, even
though our County, like all other California counties, has no influence on when or how a
conforming system is developed.

Many of the May Revision budget assumptions rely on one-time solutions and will result in
substantial costs in future budget years. Since this State budget does not resolve future year
budgetary imbalances, local government agencies will be vulnerable to reductions in State
revenue support for at least the next few years. Consequently, the County should exercise caution
and fiscal restraint given its reliance on state revenues and the expected slow pace of the
economic recovery.

Baseline Budget for FY 2002-2003

As in previous years, the Proposed Budget is developed on the basis of a recommended Baseline
Budget for departments to maintain existing service levels supplemented by Budget Change
Proposals. The Proposed Baseline Budget resulted from detailed discussions with departmental
staff and is designed to continue current levels of service and account for minor cost adjustments.
The General Fund baseline cost for FY 2002-2003 is estimated to be $302.3 million, an increase
of $9.1 million (or 3.1%) more than the adjusted FY 2001-2002 Approved Budget. Table 3 shows
major expenditure categories for each year and the estimated changes in baseline costs.

Budget Change Proposals

For the FY 2002-2003 budget, departments submitted a total of 101 Budget Change Proposals
(BCP). The cumulative net County costs of the proposals total approximately $5.4 million in the
budget year, and $3 million annually thereafter in recurring costs. If all the proposals were
approved, they would add 38.7 positions to the County workforce. These proposals represent a
reduction from last year’s 133 requests. Departmental staff is to be complimented for their careful
response to the Administrator’s budget instructions and their focus on the highest priority items.

Criteria Used to Evaluate and Rank BCPs. Evaluating for FY 2002-2003 involves balancing the
County’s need to address new program needs as they arise and the financial responsibility to limit
ongoing commitment as revenue growth slows over the next few years. Additionally, proposals
were evaluated for alignment with the Board’s adopted County Strategic Plan. Thus the criteria
used by the Administrator in formulating recommendations varies somewhat from the previous
year and are identified as follows:
        Does the BCP warrant consideration even in times of flat or declining state revenues?
        Does the proposal address a high priority County need?
        Is the proposal consistent with the County’s Strategic Plan?
        What is the potential impact, if any, on other County departments?
        Is the proposal cost effective?
        Is the proposal fully or partially offset by revenue from a non-County source?
        If the proposal includes the addition of new staff, is there ongoing revenue to cover the
        ongoing cost of the employee?

Given the above criteria and limited resources, this Proposed Budget is recommending funding
for 35 BCPs with net County costs totaling approximately $650,000. Due to the uncertainty of the
State budget, these recommendations are tentative and subject to review and confirmation by your
Board. A summary listing of all BCPs recommended for funding follows this letter.

Summary of Recommended BCPs. The Proposed Budget includes funding for BCPs
recommended by the Administrator that would accomplish the following:

Increase the County workforce by 8.75 positions for a variety of programs. All of the
recommended positions are cost-covered from identified sources other than discretionary General
Funds. These positions include:
    •   An additional Assessment Recording Technician for the Assessor-Recorder to ensure that
        documents are recorded in a timely fashion.
    •   Two additional staff for Department of Public Works capital division for additional
        project management resources to help implement the currently approved and future
        capital projects.
    •   An Associate Engineer to expedite Flood Control projects.
    •   Two positions at Health and Human Services to improve the County’s collections of
        Medi-Cal administrative reimbursements.
    •   A technical support position at IST to be shared by the Fire and Public Works
        departments.

    •    One Planner position and contract resources to help Parks implement currently approved
         projects as well as new State funded Proposition 40 projects.
    •    A Library Assistant (.75 FTE) for the South Novato library branch to address the increase
         in staff workload.

The remaining BCPs represent high priority needs and one-time investments to provide improved
equipment and materials to increase productivity of County employees. For example, non-staff
BCP recommendations include:
    •    A new tracking system for unsecured property taxes for the Assessor-Recorder.
    •    Modification/enhancement of the County’s financial systems to enable the
         implementation of newly required governmental accounting standards.
    •    Funds to enhance the County’s hazardous materials (Hazmat) response capacity at
         Environmental Health.
    •    Several proposals to help transition emergency dispatch services to the new Marin
         Emergency Radio Authority system. These costs of these upgrades are shared with the
         local jurisdictions that are participating in the system conversion project.
    •    Touch Screens computers for better public access to property information.
    •    Providing bilingual mental health services in West Marin.
    •    A new Internet based on-line Parks reservation system to improve eGov services.


Other High Priority Projects and Programs Recommended in the Proposed Budget

County Roads and Multi-Modal Transportation. County expenditures in this area support a
variety of transportation initiatives to improve countywide transit opportunities for a variety of
users from students to seniors. The Proposed Budget recommends a General Fund supplement of
$650,000 for maintenance of County roads and bridges. In addition, the Proposed Budget
allocates $300,000 for continued support of the County’s Employee Transit Assistance Program,
which includes subsidized gasoline for carpools, deep discount bus tickets, additional incentives
to use bicycles and carpools as transportation alternatives, and for expanded telecommuting
options.

Capital Improvements. This Proposed Budget continues to recommend investing in our capital
facilities to address deferred maintenance and provide adequate facilities to provide services to
the public. These one-time funding allocations provide funds for the following projects:
         Completion of Seismic Bracing for Civic Center                            $500,000
         Continued Support for Marin Center Improvements                           $250,000
         Relocation of Dispatch and Emergency Services                             $500,000
         Energy Conservation Innovative Projects                                   $ 50,000
         Rebuilding the Throckmorton Fire Station                                  $150,000

Tobacco Litigation Proceeds. The County will receive an estimated $2.6 million in FY 2002-
2003 as its share of the Master Settlement Agreement. In addition, the Board has approved
securitizing a portion of future Tobacco Settlement Revenues (TSR) which may produce a


Page 6                                         County of Marin FY 2002-2003 Proposed Budget
significant one time receipt of funds depending upon market conditions. For all revenues and
funds received from the Master Settlement Agreement, the Board has established an interim
policy that half the funds will go to health programs and the other half will be available to health
and other County programs with an emphasis on one-time allocations. This Proposed Budget
contains the following recommended allocations from these proceeds consistent with your
Board’s Interim Policy:
    •   Support for Dual Diagnosis Center                                      $500,000
    •   Breast Cancer Research Initiatives                                     $200,000
    •   Emergency Medical Dispatch Enhancements                                $100,000
    •   Senior Housing Opportunities Integrated with Medical Care              $150,000
    •   Community Facility Partnerships                                        $400,000
    •   Project Independence - Hospital to Home Assistance                     $ 50,000
    •   Building Security and Emergency Notification Systems                   $250,000
    •   Health and Safety Capital Facilities                                   $950,000


Significant Issues:

Emergency Services and Security Measures. The expectation of significant natural disasters such
as earthquakes or floods and the events of September 11th have placed renewed emphasis on the
County’s ability to respond to emergencies. This year, the Office of Emergency Services (OES)
conducted a full-scale exercise to test the County’s functional capacity to respond to emergencies.
In addition, OES has prepared a comprehensive training program for County employees to
perform their responsibilities as disaster workers. To respond to unexpected threats and
emergencies, a new building evacuation plan has been developed for the Marin County Civic
Center and is set for implementation in the summer of 2002. To respond to increased
requirements for building security, the Sheriff is preparing an enhanced security program for the
Civic Center complex and funding is being recommended for such a program in this Proposed
Budget.

Local Roads and Transportation. Funding to maintain local roads and develop a variety of
public transportation modes will be critical to the quality of life in Marin County. State budget
proposals continue to offer some long term optimism for local roads maintenance funding, but the
major investment dollars needed for enhanced highways, local roads and public transportation
systems remain elusive. City and County representatives continue to develop comprehensive
multi-modal transportation plans and public education programs in anticipation of a future public
tax measure to support a comprehensive, integrated set of programs and projects. This Proposed
Budget’s allocation of $650,000 for local roads will be used to provide supplemental funds for a
meaningful local maintenance program.

Employee Recruitment and Retention. The County faces a number of challenges in continuing to
attract skilled and qualified individuals to join the Marin County team. Housing prices and
transportation costs in particular make it more difficult to fully staff all the positions needed to
provide adequate services to the community. This Proposed Budget continues to recommend
support for employee transportation costs and job flexibility including more telecommute
opportunities. In addition, the Proposed Budget anticipates the implementation of your Board's



County of Marin FY 2002-2003 Proposed Budget                                                 Page 7
initiative to enhance the retirement system for most County employees to maintain comparability
with other agencies. Locally affordable housing for employees is and will continue to be a major
obstacle in meeting our staffing demands. A study being conducted by the County’s Housing
Strategist may present some feasible alternatives for affordable employee housing opportunities.
Of particular note, a significant investment in employee training and staff development is being
recommended consistent with the County’s Strategic Plan.

Strategic Planning for the Organization. During this fiscal year, the Board adopted a first time
Strategic Plan subtitled a ”Blueprint for Excellence in Public Service”. The Strategic Planning
process involved hundreds of employees participating with the Board and County managers in
developing a program to improve customer service, enhance communications with the
community, restructure employee training and develop a performance budgeting program to track
results. This outstanding effort by County employees at all levels resulted in a three-year action
plan to improve services to the public. The action plan provides guidance to both employees and
the community about the direction of County government and identifies many creative steps that
will be taken to deliver excellent services to the community.

Several departments are implementing the vision of the Strategic Plan. Examples of such
initiatives include:
Employee Support and Development
         The Assessor’s Office has sent several employees to a three-day Leadership Training
         Academy at Stanford University.
         The Fire Department provides technology training opportunities for employees by
         incorporating the use of Global Positioning Systems into daily staff routines.
Customer Service
         In the fall of 2002, the Assessor’s Office will participate in the design of a customer
         service questionnaire for use at the public counters in their office.
         The Probation Department has initiated a customer survey process for parents visiting
         their children in Juvenile Hall.
     The Department of Public Works Waste Management Division sent customer satisfaction
     surveys to its customers.
Communication
     The Sheriff produces a bi-monthly newsletter called “The Confidential Informant”
     comprised of articles written by staff.
     The Fire Department ensures that all employees are aware of issues discussed at senior
     staff meetings through weekly emails to all department employees.
Performance Budgeting
         The Assessor’s Office has developed a performance tracking system for the property
         appraisal unit.
         The Fire department is proposing a comprehensive “best practices” performance and
         operations review of departmental programs and services.

Affordable Housing. The lack of affordable housing opportunities in Marin County continues to
be at the top of the public policy agenda. Public and private sector employers continue to find
themselves limited in their ability to attract and retain employees simply because very little



Page 8                                          County of Marin FY 2002-2003 Proposed Budget
affordable housing exists anywhere in the County both for potential owners or renters. While
rental rates for apartments have declined somewhat, the cost of home ownership continues to
increase unabated. In the current year, your Board took affirmative action to approve and
significantly fund 34 affordable units in the Point Reyes area. More projects such as this one will
be needed. The County’s Housing Strategist continues to pursue all opportunities to increase the
supply of affordable units. The County’s leadership in helping to produce cooperatively prepared
Housing Elements in Marin may help get more units built. Marin County is certainly not unique
in experiencing a shortage of affordable housing, but the very high cost of housing in the County
requires extraordinary efforts. In this Proposed Budget, the Housing Strategist position would be
scheduled as a dedicated full-time position in the Community Development Agency focusing on
increasing affordable housing supply.

County Facilities Planning. A Proposed Master Space Plan for County facilities has been
prepared with the assistance of a facilities planning committee and involvement of the County’s
senior management staff. This 10 year master plan calls for reallocation of services within the
Civic Center building as well as an array of community based service centers in southern, central,
northern and western Marin County, with the objective of providing better access and service to
the public. In addition, the Plan recommends that an additional 120,000 square feet of office
space will be needed for long-term future uses. For the short term, facility reorganization will be
needed to accommodate an anticipated restructuring of out-patient mental health and dual
diagnosis services. A first step was made in acquiring a 46,500 square foot building in San Rafael
to consolidate social services programs under one roof and additional steps will require
modification to other existing office spaces. Full implementation of this Plan will be slowed by
the availability of resources, but the Plan will guide the County in its overall facilities
management strategy and incremental changes to current and future building spaces.

Budget Contingency Planning. The next few years will pose significant funding risks and
uncertainties to the County due to current and projected State budget deficits, a projected lower
growth rate of property and sales tax based revenues and increasing capital and personnel costs.
The vast array of County programs and services provided to the Marin community is a mixture of
mandates imposed by the State and local decisions made by the Board of Supervisors.
Additionally, a significant number of programs in Health and Human Services, public safety and
roads require a local minimum funding level to receive state and federal program revenues.
Consequently, any County budget adjustments to address multi-million dollar State revenue
reductions will require accurate information and time to realign our budget strategy to effectively
deploy available funding.

In anticipation of future budget changes, the Administrator is recommending that the FY 2001-
2002 reserve for State fiscal uncertainty be preserved and that an additional $2 million be
designated for this purpose in FY 2002-2003. To prepare for the projected ongoing impact of
state and local revenue shortfalls, the Administrator and County departments have begun to
develop short and long term budget restructuring options. Using the expertise of our excellent
departmental managers and in coordination with your Board, we intend to identify ways of
restructuring our programs over the next six months in a manner that is consistent with available
funding and our commitment to the community.

Conclusion

This Proposed Budget is supported by resources that are expected to be available from a variety
of sources during the next fiscal year. The Proposed Budget for FY 2002-2003 will maintain and,

in limited cases, add services and it provides for critical one-time program enhancements and
capital project investments. Both FY 2002-03 and the following year (FY 2003-2004) are
expected to offer a number of fiscal constraints. Consequently, this budget proposal attempts to
maintain appropriate allocations for baseline programs, expands the budget into new areas in a
limited manner and provides for one-time projects and capital improvements.

At the upcoming Board hearings on the Proposed Budget in July, we will provide you with
updated information of the impacts of the State budget and recommendations to amend the
Proposed Budget, if necessary. During your review of this Proposed Budget, and in adopting the
Final FY 2002-2003 Budget, please consider the following principles:
    1. Maintain your emphasis on making existing programs effective and appropriate long-
       term capital investments.
    2. New and existing programs and investments in the County’s infrastructure should be
       aligned with your Board’s adopted Strategic Plan.
    3. Commitments of funds to new activities with ongoing future costs should be avoided in
       given the prevailing forecast of relatively flat economic growth or possible contraction in
       next few years.
    4. Optimal use of one-time funding for critical programs should be emphasized.

This Proposed Budget should provide your Board and the public with an appropriate level of
information and guidance to enable your Board to adopt a spending plan for FY 2002-2003 that
will allow excellent services to be delivered to Marin County. Additional information that
impacts your decision to adopt the FY 2002-2003 budget will be provided to you as it becomes
available. Thank you for your continued support to my office and departmental budget staff in
preparing FY 2002-2003 budget recommendations.

Major Accomplishments in
FY 2001-2002
     In recent years, ADI has advised the County of
     the difficulty in recruiting qualified attorneys
     for handling complex and serious felony cases.
     The hourly compensation in indigent cases has
     been below the amounts paid to attorneys in
     other Bay Area counties and is frequently
     cited as a reason why more experienced
     attorneys are unwilling to take felony, serious
     felony, and capital cases in Marin. The
     County agreed to increase the contract with
     ADI to enable ADI to bring attorney
     compensation closer in alignment with other
     Bay Area counties.

Major Goals and Objectives for
FY 2002-2003
In recent years, ADI has experienced extreme
volatility in the number of assigned cases of all
types. This volatility makes caseload projections
for FY 2002-03 difficult. ADI continues to be
helpful in suggesting to the County and Court
ways in which the handling of indigent conflict
cases could be made more cost efficient.

Considerations for FY 2002-2003

•   As described above, over the past three years,
    the number of documents processed by the
    Recorder’s office has increased dramatically.
    The Recorder has partially addressed the
    problem through overtime, by allocating
    cross-trained individuals from the valuation
    function to the recording division, and by
    limiting recording time by the title companies
    to the morning hours.

Program Description

This budget center was created to account for the County’s obligation to make annual payments to the State in
support of trial court operations. This obligation was created pursuant to AB 233, the Trial Court Funding
Realignment Act of 1997 (chapter 850/97). In 1998, the State enacted legislation (chapter1017/98) reducing
the ongoing obligation of certain counties (including Marin) to support trial court operations. This legislation,
which provides fiscal relief of roughly $4.8 million annually to the County of Marin, became effective in FY
1999-2000.

This budget center is for accounting purposes only; it does not administer any direct services.

Pending Issues and Policy
Considerations for FY 2002-2003

•   5-Year Affirmative Action Plan - A new five-
    year affirmative action plan will be drafted in
    preparation for FY2004 through FY2009.
    Workforce availability data from the 2000
    census is not yet available, however, and the
    plan may not be finalized. Whereas the 1998-
    2003 plan was prepared and carefully
    reviewed for compliance following the
    passage of Proposition 209, the new plan will
    be carefully reviewed for compliance with the
    recent Connerly vs. State Personnel Board
    decision. This decision further clarified lawful
    activity in recruitment of persons of color and
    maintaining a diverse and inclusive
    workplace.

•   Health Insurance - Health care cost increases
    continue to threaten County resources and
    employees’ net compensation. Analysis,
    employee discussion sessions, and program
    modifications tempered the increases for the
    2002 calendar year, but continued monitoring
    and creativity will be necessary. Human
    Resources will spearhead this work in
    conjunction with the Board, County
    administration, employees and employee
    representatives.

Major Accomplishments in
FY 2001-2002
    By creating a combined licensing department,
    residents can obtain services in just one
    department. The issuance of passport
    applications along with passport photographs
    saves residents from having to travel to more
    than one location to obtain both services.

    The department has completed a review of
    fees for services. This review indicates that
    charges are consistent with other Bay Area
    counties and cover actual costs.

Major Program Goals and Objectives
for FY 2002-2003

•   Completion of the cross training of staff on all
    services provided by the office. Complete
    work with Human Resources to finalize the
    office reorganization.

•   Build a Geographic Information System (GIS)
    database for processing and tracking water and
    septic system applications

•   Continue to seek grants to further enhance the
    health of Marin’s watersheds

Considerations for FY 2002-2003
•   Staff are providing input to the Statewide
    AB885 working group which is developing
    minimum standards for onsite wastewater
    systems. These regulations are expected to be
    completed by the end of FY 02-03

•   Funding to initiate a beach monitoring
    program will continue to be pursued

•   The State is currently revising the retail food
    facility law, replacing CURFL with a
    California Food Code, which will be much
    greater in scope and complexity than current
    law

County of Marin FY 2002-2003 Proposed Budget                                                              B-15
676 – Federal Grants Division
Community Development & Public Works

Pending Issues and Policy
Considerations for FY 2002-2003
•   A key issue is whether, and at what level, the
    federal government continues to fund the
    CDBG, HOME, and HOPWA programs so
    that the County can continue to assist housing,
    community facilities, and human service
    projects.

•   The President’s budget proposal calls for a
    50% cut in CDBG grants to the nation’s most
    affluent communities. This proposal, and
    related proposals to change the funding
    formula, could affect Marin County.

•   Major cuts in Marin’s HOPWA allocation are
    expected because AIDS cases diagnosed at
    San Quentin Prison will no longer be counted
    when Marin’s share of the regional HOPWA
    allocation is calculated. This change will be
    phased-in over a three-year period.

•   The federal government is threatening to
    reduce CDBG grants to communities that do
    not meet the program’s timely spending
    standard. Many housing development projects
    face a lengthy process to obtain local planning
    approvals and to secure financing. It will be
    difficult to maintain the program’s emphasis
    on housing and still meet the timely spending
    standard.

•   The City of Novato is approaching 50,000
    population (the threshold for qualifying
    independently for CDBG grants). It is
    expected that the CDBG allocation system
    will be modified, as it was when San Rafael
    reached 50,000 population. Efforts will be
    needed to maintain a countywide allocation
    system for CDBG funds subject to specific
    allocations to San Rafael and Novato when
    appropriate.

Considerations for FY 2002-2003

The County Library will continue lobbying efforts
with the State Legislature, for the return of

    landscaping will occur after completion of the
    roof work.

Pending Issues and Policy
Considerations for FY 2002-2003

•   A combination of fiscal and administrative
    problems has reduced the stability of Marin
    Community Clinic. This instability impacts
    the effectiveness of a wide range of “safety
    net” health care services for Marin’s low-
    income citizens who are uninsured or rely on
    public-funded health insurance to cover the
    health care needs.

•   The events of September 11, 2001 and
    subsequent concerns about bioterrorism have
    heightened the need to strengthen public
    health infrastructure. Federal funding to
    finance some expansion of the current system
    is anticipated.

Pending Issues and Policy
Considerations for FY 2002-2003

•   The pattern of utilization has remained stable
    for several years, although a single incident,
    such as an organ transplant case, could
    adversely impact program costs. Federal and
    State categorical funding requires a County
    match. The County’s match requirement is
    50% for those costs in excess of the amount
    paid by Medi-Cal, with the exception of
    services provided for children with Healthy
    Families.

•   Implement State staffing standards as
    mandated by the program to continue to
    promote the health of children and their
    families in our community.

Pending Issues and Policy
Considerations for FY 2002-2003

•   Development of Marin Children and Families
    Commission policies and programs may
    provide additional support to the MCH
    program.

•   Last year, the governor cut $2.6 million from
    the state MCH budget. Although the
    allocation was eventually reinstated, the
    vulnerability of state MCH funds is of
    concern.

•   Complete performance evaluations annually
    for all employees with the on-going
    encouragement for clinical excellence and
    professionalism.


Pending Issues and Policy
Considerations for FY 2002-2003

•   Newer, and increasingly effective drugs are
    being marketed with rapid frequency. Along
    with the rise in availability is the rise in cost
    for these vital drugs. Psychiatric drugs have
    fewer side effects, hence patients are more
    compliant, and the numbers of mental illness-
    related arrests hopefully will decrease.

•   We anticipate at least three members of our
    work force will retire in the coming year.
    This, along with the nursing shortage, is cause
    for great concern. Enrollment is decreasing in
    nursing schools nation wide and it is difficult
    to attract nurses to work in the correctional
    setting due to long-held negative impressions
    of this particular clinical area. This unit plans
    to devote much time, energy, and research to
    bolstering the image of nursing in the
    correctional field.

Major Accomplishments in
FY 2001-2002

       Secured services of a dentist who is
       experienced in serving children with extensive
       decay and/or are under 10 years of age. Since
       this addition we have been able to eliminate
       the need for hospital treatment and have cut
       the waiting for treatment from three months to
       three weeks.

       Hosted a Smile Festival at Pickelweed
       Community Center in San Rafael. Local
       dentists screened 198 children and discussed,
       with each family individually, how they can
       improve their oral health. This event was co-
       hosted by all divisions of Health and Human
       Services Health Department.

       Results from the screenings showed a decline
       in dental disease for these children and a
       definite awareness of what it takes to
       accomplish oral health. Families needing
       treatment have either contacted the clinic
       themselves or have been contacted by the
       clinic staff for advice.

Major Program Goals and Objectives
for FY 2002-2003

•   Work for the establishment in Marin County of
    an On Lok Program of All-Inclusive Care for
    the Elderly, providing on-site and community
    based services to Medicare/Medi-Cal older
    adults at risk of nursing home placement.

•   Develop a Long Term Care Integration System
    that establishes a capitated service delivery
    system for Medi-Cal eligible older adults and
    persons with disabilities at-risk of
    institutionalization.

Pending Issues and Policy
Considerations for FY 2002-2003

The ability of the County of Marin to develop a
Long Term Care Integrated Service System for
Medi-Cal eligible persons at-risk of nursing home
placement is dependent on both the affiliation of
the County of Marin with Medi-Cal managed care
plan, Partnership HealthPlan of California, as well
as on the State’s success in obtaining a waiver from
the Health Care Financing Administration for the
reimbursement of home- and community-based
services by Medi-Cal.

                                                            As the age of veterans and dependents increases,
Major Accomplishments in                                    so do inquiries for assistance, which results in
FY 2001-2002                                                increased time to process each claim.

      The Veterans’ Service Officer was made an
      honorary member of The Retired Officers’
      Association, which will further aid in
      publicizing the work of this office.

      Installation of new computer software will
      allow for more efficient processing of claims.

Major Program Goals and Objectives
for FY 2002-2003

•     To further publicize the Office of Veterans’
      Affairs. When a veteran dies, the next of kin
      is too frequently unaware that there is an
      office in Marin County that can help them.
      This office will be listed independently on
      Marin County’s Internet Site in order to
      increase visibility.

•     To work to make VA health benefits more
      available. The cost of private health insurance
      has recently increased markedly. Many
      veterans and their dependents may obtain
      treatment and medication through the VA at a
      reduced cost.

•     To realign equipment for greater efficiency
      and update furniture

Pending Issues and Policy
Considerations for FY 2002-2003
The Governor has proposed to transfer to counties
50 percent of the State’s penalties assessed by the
federal government for its failure to implement a
single, statewide child support collection system.
Of all the State budget actions, this one stands out
as most troubling because counties were not
responsible for the State’s failure to comply with
federal law. In fact, the State assumed this
responsibility when it took over the operations of
local child support programs from the counties. It
is estimated that this action will cost the County
approximately $300,000 if the Legislature adopts
this proposal. This estimate is likely to double if
the State does not secure penalty relief from the
federal government.

The proposed State action on the transfer of
federal penalties to the counties should not have an
immediate impact on local child support programs.
While the State continues to fund the entire
operation of local programs, it has proposed to
fund FY 2002-03 only at FY 2001-02 expenditure
levels. Continued State budget cuts may have a
future impact on local child support agencies and
their ability to expand programs to meet
previously identified statewide objectives.

Pending Issues and Policy
Considerations for FY 2002-2003
The State’s FY2002/2003 budget proposals
include a budget reduction of $20 million in State
funding to the California Department of Forestry
and Fire Protection (CDF). It has been presented
as a fund shift, i.e., the Department of Finance is
counting on local jurisdictions to pay for this fund
shift by reimbursing the State through a yet-to-be-
developed cost-sharing plan. Any reduction in
CDF’s budget may impact the Fire Department’s
budget due to our contractual relationship with
CDF.

Program Description
The Citizens Option for Public Safety (COPS) Program was established in 1996 to provide funding to local
governments for public safety. It provides additional funding to counties for front-line law enforcement
services, jail construction, and for criminal prosecution.

Funding for this program was initially intended to support a prosecutor and a clerical support position in the
District Attorney's Office. Over the years, the allocation to the District Attorney has remained fairly constant.
What initially started as a program that did not require General Fund support has gradually become reliant on
the General Fund as increases in personnel cost over time outpaced program funding.

Major Accomplishments in
FY 2001-2002
      Completed two major construction projects to
      expand and modernize the Hall: expanded the
      outdoor recreation area and added a nine-bed
      wing.

      Expanded mental health services during
      evenings and weekends. This expansion,
      funded through the Schiff-Cardenas Juvenile
      Crime Prevention Act of 2000 (AB 1913), has
      enabled the Hall to provide crisis intervention
      and other mental health services to an
      additional 30 youths (average) per month.

      Initiated comprehensive drug/alcohol,
      educational needs, and mental health
      assessment for all youth detained in the Hall.

Major Goals and Objectives for
FY 2002-2003

•     Address staff and resource requirements for
      the nine new beds at the Hall.

•     Conduct on-going analysis on Hall population
      and develop guidelines and procedures to
      avoid instances of overcrowding that occurred
      in the Hall during brief periods in 2001.
