County Administrator Budget Message
June 10, 2003


TO:             Board of Supervisors

FROM:           Mark J. Riesenfeld, County Administrator

SUBJECT:        Proposed Budget FY 2003-2004 for Marin County

This letter transmits the Administrator’s Proposed County Budget for FY 2003-2004 and makes
the following recommendations:

        1. Accept the Administrator’s Proposed Budget FY 2003-2004 County Budget for
           public review, and

        2. Schedule public hearings on the Proposed FY 2003-2004 County Budget to begin on
           Monday, July 21, 2003 in the Board of Supervisors Chambers at 10:00 a.m., and

        3. Adopt the Proposed FY 2003-2004 County Budget as the County’s interim spending
           plan for FY 2003-2004 pending your Board’s formal adoption of the 2003-2004
           County Budget.

Introduction

This year we were presented with significant challenges in preparing the Proposed FY 2003-2004
County Budget due to the enormous uncertainty of the State budget crisis. Your Board,
Department Heads and their fiscal staff, and indeed, the whole county workforce deserve a great
deal of thanks for their cooperation and positive creativity in helping to develop a community
investment plan for next fiscal year that reflects constrained resources, uncertainties and service
priorities.

Given anticipated revenues for the coming fiscal year, this budget presents a comprehensive
recommendation for allocation of the county’s resources for FY 03-04. The proposed FY 2003-04
budget for all funds is $335.6 million, a 0.6% decrease over the current year. The proposed
general fund budget is $307.7 million, a 1.7% increase over the current year. The structure of the
general fund proposed budget incorporates a combination of cost reductions and revenue
increases amounting to approximately $4 million and a significant attempt to maintain existing
programs at near current levels. In anticipation of future reductions in revenues due to the state
budget, the proposed budget carries forward current year reserves of $5.1 million to maintain
stability of services.

While the uncertainty of the State budget remains, the County’s proposed budget represents a
positive investment program for the community and is designed to provide public information
and solicit public input for your consideration at the budget hearings. As always, the Auditor-
Controller and the IST Director and their staff are recognized and commended for their
cooperation and technical help in completing the proposed budget.

Guiding Principles of the FY 2003-2004 Budget

The process of developing the proposed budget was significantly influenced by long-term
uncertainties caused by the State budget crisis. In preparing for the proposed budget, your Board
endorsed the following guiding principles:

         Preserve and enhance critical service programs through creative approaches to providing
         County services, including initiatives that involve more interdepartmental coordination
         and cooperation
         Assess program objectives within the framework of the County’s Strategic Plan
         Address the long-term health of the budget and establish conditions for a sustainable
         budget
         Review and consider opportunities for departmental revenues when appropriate
         Provide an inclusive process with open communication
         Ensure every department participates in the process
         Maintain a positive working relationship with departments, employees, clients and the
         community
         Support department efforts to solicit feedback and suggestions from employees and
         customers
         Minimize impact on existing employees
         Manage for Results – make budget reduction decisions based on overall County priorities

These principles have directed our development of the FY 2003-2004 budget and have helped
County departments to identify their priorities.

Summary of Proposed Budget

Based on these principles, the proposed budget is recommending maintaining nearly all baseline
services and is proposing to fund a few very few high priority projects at this time. Consistent
with the practice of the past few years, this proposed budget will need to be reconciled with the
results of the State budget and may necessitate budget amendment hearings in the future.
Notwithstanding this reservation, the Proposed General Fund Budget of $307.7 million will
provide resources for the following specific investments:

    •    Maintenance of County services at nearly current levels
    •    $750,000 supplemental allocation for maintenance of County roads
    •    $750,000 for various short-term capital projects including an upgrade of County
         laboratory facilities and ADA compliance projects
    •    $150,000 for key bus transit projects

    •   $100,000 for development of new financial management system

Due to the significant constraints of the State budget, this year’s proposed budget focuses on
maintaining existing service levels for the community and has not included new budget items that
were not offset by additional revenues. In contrast to the recent past, this proposed budget is not
recommending a program of budget changes that adds staffing or new expenditures.
Consequently, it is important to recognize that there are a number of important programs and
projects that did not receive funding at this time due to limited resources.

For FY 2003-2004, the proposed budget includes $284.7 million in General Fund revenues,
$305.8 million in revenues for all funds (Table 1). Budget-to-budget revenues for the General
Fund will increase by 1.1%. Revenues for all funds will increase by 0.6%.

Factors Affecting the FY 2003-2004 Budget

This year’s proposed budget recognizes that the growing cost of maintaining services and funding
new capital projects is outpacing the growth of available revenues. Consequently this budget
incorporates an overall 3% reduction in net county costs including staffing and service decreases
as well as enhancements to revenue. For the most part, current service levels have been
maintained due to a significant year-end fund balance, implementation of a strict hiring review
process and responsible departmental management of budgets.




County of Marin FY 2003-2004 Proposed Budget                                                          Page 3
State Budget. Building on a trend of the last couple of years, the State budget crisis keeps getting
worse. While opinions differ on the size of the problem, the state general fund budget shortfall is
estimated to range from $29 to $38 billion for the two-year period FY 2002-2003 and FY 2003-
2004. The Governor’s May 14th Revision (Revise) is estimating a $38.4 billion deficit to be
solved through a variety of reductions, shifts and debt financings. The difficulty in developing a
County budget is the high degree of uncertainty about what State resources will actually be
available to the county. Similar to last year, the state is being negatively impacted by lower than
expected income and sales tax receipts, higher unemployment, and few prospects of revenue
growth for the next fiscal year. It is expected that the effects of the current budget crisis will carry
over to future years making long-term planning a difficult task.

In contrast to the past, this year’s May Revise completely restructured the Governor’s approach to
financing the deficit. In addition to proposing over $18 billion in cost and service reductions, the
May Revise is financing a portion of the deficit through a series of short and long term
borrowings including a $10.7 billion five year rollover bond to be paid by a new ½ cent sales tax.
The potential negative impacts of the May Revise on local governments appear to be reduced as
compared to the Governor’s January budget. The May Revise proposes to maintain the level of
Vehicle License Fee (VLF) revenues to cities and counties, but there remain a number of
important negative budget recommendations and the potential of future problems.

Echoing last year’s letter to your Board and the Legislative Analyst Office’s review, the May
Revise patches together a series of single and multi-year solutions, which does not lead to long-
term budget equilibrium. Structural deficits are still dominating the State budget with the LAO
estimating a continuing deficit for the next five years of at least $7 billion per year. Consequently,
local agencies including counties, cities and schools will continue to be at risk for reductions in
State revenues or shifts of local tax revenues to balance the State’s budget.

Of particular note for Marin County, the May Revise calls for reductions in financial support for
health and human service programs, elimination of reimbursements for state-mandated services, a
transfer of federal penalty assessments for a noncompliant state child support computer system,
reduced state support for libraries and road maintenance. For FY 2003-2004, the overall County
revenue loss appears to be in the $3-5 million range. Additional concerns with this budget include
ambiguities about how VLF revenues continue to flow to the County and the changes to the
budget resulting from review by the State Legislature. We believe these uncertainties could add
an additional $4-5 million of negative impact to the County if unfavorably resolved.

Health and Human Service Programs are particularly at risk. The most significant negative
impact of the Governor’s May Revise budget would be to Marin County residents who rely on
Medi-Cal for their health care, or on individuals enrolled in CalWORKS. The Governor proposes
significant reductions of up to 10-15% in the rates paid to Medi-Cal providers, which will make it
even more difficult for Marin’s 12,000 Medi-Cal recipients to find providers willing to treat
them. He also proposes to eliminate a series of benefits for adults on Medi-Cal, including dental
services, medical supplies or durable medical equipment. Further, the Governor proposes re-
evaluating eligibility for Medi-Cal recipients every three months, making it more difficult for
both individuals and providers to participate in the Medi-Cal program.

Residents enrolled in the CalWORKS welfare program (approximately 800 individuals) will not
receive cost-of-living increases in their grants. Additionally, the Governor proposes elimination
of four programs designed to help seniors find caregivers, link seniors with troubled children, or



Page 4                                                        County of Marin FY 2003-2004 Proposed Budget
to assist seniors with their groceries. Other proposed cuts include reductions in funds for alcohol
and drug treatment and restrictions on funding for child care services.

Finally, the Governor proposes that the County assume responsibility for several social service
and mental health programs, in exchange for dedicated revenue sources. It is unclear at this point
whether any of these cuts will take place to the extent proposed by the Governor, or whether any
programs will indeed be “realigned” to the County. If the County does assume responsibility for
programs, the Health and Human Services Department will work to ensure that the funding
formulas and administrative guidelines are feasible for Marin County.

Local Economy. The local Marin economy has remained relatively strong compared to Bay Area
and statewide trends. Unemployment for Marin County is relatively low at 3.7% compared to a
Bay Area 5.7% and 6.6% statewide. Low mortgage rates have continued to stimulate an already
robust real estate market in the county producing steady increases in property tax revenues and
property transfer revenues from refinancing of mortgages. While remaining steady, revenues
from local sales taxes, transient occupancy taxes and vehicle license fees are not growing due to
overall weaknesses in the economy. Reflecting the statewide economic slump, the County’s
revenues from state sales tax sources for public safety programs have declined 2% or by $400,000
compared to last fiscal year. Negative performance of the retirement system’s investment
portfolio over the past three years will continue to cause increased costs for the County in
meeting system contribution obligations in FY 2003-2004.

Fiscal Management. Throughout the fiscal year, County department managers and their fiscal
staff have worked very closely with their respective staff members to effectively administer their
budgets and produce a high level of services. This fiscal year, a strict hiring review process was
initiated in November, 2002 to limit new hiring to positions providing essential services or
positions completely funded by non-county sources. At year-end, nearly 160 positions will be
vacant for future disposition. In addition, a Budget Working Group comprised of senior
departmental management has contributed in reviewing budget contingency plans and
recommending cost containment steps for departments to implement. To mitigate potential
increases in costs for the retirement system, the county issued $112 million series of Pension
Obligation Bonds. Over the next twenty-three years, these bonds are estimated to provide savings
to the County of $32 million in today’s dollars. These actions and the year long budget review
process undertaken by the Administrator’s Office and the Auditor-Controller’s Office have
achieved a FY 2002-2003 carryover fund balance of $25.7 million to be used as a resource for the
FY 2003-2004 budget.

Budget Process for FY 2003-2004

Due to the significant uncertainties of the State budget process and growing trend of costs
increasing faster than revenues, the FY 03-04 budget process was organized to establish multiple
levels of contingency planning. Development of this year’s proposed budget included the
following features:

    •   Adoption of Guiding Principles for Budget Development
    •   Implementation of a hiring review process that substantially limited hiring of new
        positions.




County of Marin FY 2003-2004 Proposed Budget                                                          Page 5
    •    Establishment of a county staff Budget Working Group to review and make
         recommendations on budget issues.
    •    Departmental submittal of three levels of reductions of budget costs at 3%, 5%, and 5%
         of net county cost totaling $13 million in a combination of expenditure reductions and
         revenue increases. The 3% scenario and the most of the revenue increases proposed in the
         two 5% scenarios were integrated into the proposed budget. The two 5% expenditure
         reduction scenarios were submitted for information purposes to identify potential areas
         for reduction of programs if necessary.
    •    Scheduling of workshops with the Board of Supervisors and senior management staff to
         identify potential areas of savings and program and service priorities.
    •    Open communication with employees and the public about the progress of the budget and
         potential impacts on the community.

As a consequence of this approach, the proposed budget is largely developed on the basis of a
baseline budget designed to maintain existing service levels. The proposed budget does modify
the baseline budgets to incorporate the expenditure reductions contained in the department 3%
reduction scenarios ($2.5 million) and consequently does lower services in some program areas.
Significant changes in the proposed budget include:
    •    As part of the 3% reduction scenarios, there is $1.3 million in personnel expenditure
         reductions from the elimination of 10.8 vacant positions, overtime, special appointment
         and extra-hire account reductions. Approximately 10 vacant FTE were eliminated as
         departmental baseline adjustments. Six were a result of reduction in State support for
         court security services.
    •    Contract Services are reduced by approximately $700,000 as part of our 3% reduction
         scenario.
    •    Materials & Supplies are reduced by approximately $500,000 as part of our 3% reduction
         scenario.
    •    Department revenues are increased by approximately $1.5 million largely as a result of
         new revenues or increases in existing fees to cover the increased cost of providing
         department services.

While this year’s proposed budget focuses on strategies to maintain existing services, there are a
number of significant policy issues and investment opportunities for the County that are
noteworthy.

Local Roads and Multi-Modal Transportation. The proposed budget continues to recommend
funds to support a variety of projects that support mobility of residents and workers in the
community. In addition to Road Fund projects for general maintenance, the General Fund
proposed budget includes $750,000 General Fund supplement for road and bridge maintenance,
$150,000 to maintain key local bus transit projects, and $300,000 for continued support of
employee transit assistance and telecommuting programs.

It is important to note that the Board has identified a number of other transportation programs that
support bicycle and pedestrian pathways, and improved bus transit subsidies. Both of these
priorities will be further considered if additional funding becomes available. In addition,



Page 6                                                     County of Marin FY 2003-2004 Proposed Budget
significant reductions in local and regional bus services now provided by the Golden Gate Bridge
District will occur beginning in September, 2003.

Affordable Housing. Inadequacy of affordable housing opportunities continues to be a major
problem for the Bay Area and Marin County in particular. The County’s Housing Strategist is
providing leadership in moving a number of affordable housing projects to completion. California
Housing Finance Agency revolving loan funds have been used to encourage at least one new
project and the County’s In Lieu Housing Trust has provided support to a number of projects at
different stages. A proposal to establish a new community affordable housing trust in
collaboration with other community partners such as the Marin Community Foundation, major
employers and other cities and towns appears quite promising. This approach could attract a
significant matching grant from the State and leverage millions of dollars in other financing to
provide much needed resources for a variety of affordable housing projects. The Board’s
adoption of a new Housing Element of the Countywide Plan will provide additional strategies for
the development of affordable housing.

County Facilities. Consistent with the County’s long-term plan to provide adequate facilities for
public needs and employees, staff is continuing to plan for the renovation of existing buildings
and development of new space. The County’s new 46,500 square foot Health and Human
Services facility in north San Rafael in now operational. Development of plans for renovation and
reuse of approximately 25,000 square feet of space within Civic Center is underway. Continued
work with Marin General and the Health Care District will lead to development of a new dual
diagnosis center at the Marin General site in Greenbrae within a few years. In the interim, your
Board continues to financially support an upgraded Helen Vine facility located on the Silveira
property. In addition, plans for the reconstruction of the Throckmorton Fire Station should be
completed during FY 03-04 with progress made toward construction.

With regard to the Civic Center site in San Rafael, efforts are beginning to develop a
comprehensive set of design principles to guide improvements on the campus. Potential future
improvements that have been identified include a significantly upgraded Marin Center complex, a
new Public Safety building to house a variety of services including an Emergency Operations
Center and Dispatch services, a commuter rail station and future court facilities. Funding has been
included in the Proposed budget to support the effort to establish design principles and
preliminary feasibility studies.

Strategic Planning for Service Improvements. The 03-04 fiscal year marks the second year of a
three year implementation schedule for the County’s Strategic Plan. This Plan continues to be our
guidepost and sets the goals for the county in customer service, in communication, in making
Marin County the employer of choice and in developing metrics to measure our progress. The
Plan has led to significant accomplishments over the past year. The customer service program has
moved forward with the completion of three demonstration pilots and training at all levels of the
organization from front-line employees to Department Heads. Training opportunities for all
employees have increased with the rollout of the Franklin-Covey program that provides a
common basis of understanding across the organization. Other progress of note includes the
development of countywide goals consistent with the Mission Statement and County Values.
Over the next year, the County will continue to make progress in Strategic Plan implementation
but at less cost. One example of this approach is development of a Business Improvement Plan.
The Plan includes twenty-nine projects that will improve county business systems and streamline

work processes. The plan is called “Things That Get In Our Way” and will be administered by
Assistant Department Heads at no additional cost to the County.

Planning for Budget Contingencies. Similar to last year, this proposed budget is being
developed without knowing the final outcome of the State budget. Information available about
both state and county finances during the next few years suggests that there will be a continuing
gap between revenues available and expenditures required to sustain current operations. County
staff has already begun the task of restructuring spending to anticipate tighter future budgets.
Future restructuring of the County’s baseline budget will need to be done over the next few years
to account for a revenue base that is growing slowly and to provide for the funding of new
program priorities.

For FY 2003-2004, the uncertainties and risks of the State budget require the Administrator to
recommend that the current reserve for State fiscal uncertainty be retained. These reserves will
be held for the purpose of mitigating major impacts of the State’s budget.

Conclusion

The fiscal year 2003-2004 proposed budget is markedly different than the past few years. This
budget attempts to maintain existing services at or near their current levels, incorporates a variety
of budget reduction and revenue enhancement strategies, proposes few program enhancements
and includes additional budget reserves. With that said, this proposed budget does represent a
$307.7 million General Fund investment program in Marin County that offers critical public
health and safety services, provides excellent cultural and recreations programs; and supports
projects and programs to protect and enhance Marin County’s environment.

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 2003-04 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. Ongoing new commitments of funds should be avoided in view of many predictions of
       relatively modest economic growth.

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 2003-
04 that will allow excellent services to be delivered to Marin County. Additional
information that impacts your decision to adopt the FY 2003-04 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 these budget recommendations.

Major Program Goals and Objectives
for FY 2003-04

•   Financial System Replacement Project –
    Implement Phase II of the project to enhance
    or replace the financial management systems
    of the County. Phase II will most likely
    include the development of business
    requirements, selection of system modules and
    contract negotiations.

•   Property Tax Online Query – Provide
    school districts with the ability to review
    recently developed revenue forecasting
    information online, rather than through paper
    reports.

•   Gold enhancements – Provide additional
    functionality to Gold by including the ability
    to view inter-fund transfers on-line.

•   Space planning –Begin working with the
    Department of Public Works to develop a
    transition plan for the Auditors office to the
    Facilities Plan workspace standards.

•   Fixed Asset Limit Increase – Begin training
    department staff in improved internal controls
    over fixed assets.

•   Ventura Scanning Project –Convert
    microfiche records to electronic format to
    allow Retirement to access information to
    determine the financial impacts of
    implementing the Ventura Decision.

•   Cal-Card – Currently the County utilizes a
    purchasing card from Bank of America. In the
    past, this card was provided free of charge.

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

        phone into the office can also show the

Major Accomplishments in FY 2002-03
    With a combined licensing department, we
    have made it easier for residents to obtain
    services in just one department. The issuance
    of passport applications, along with passport
    photographs, is a service that saves many
    residents from having to travel to more than
    one location to obtain both services. Our
    clients welcome these and all the services we
    provide Marin County residents.

Major Program Goals and Objectives
for FY 2003-04
Cross training of staff will continue for all services
provided by this office. This will ensure the
customers a knowledgeable staff person and
extraordinary customer service. We will be
updating the Fictitious Business Name (FBN)
program and move it from the outdated system to
our automated tracking system “CATS”.

                                                       Health & Human Services


Major Program Goals and Objectives
for FY 2003-2004

•   Maintain revenue at current levels despite
    weakened economy.

•   Maximize revenue by use of Medi-Cal
    Administrative Activities (MAA) and raising
    court fees whenever possible.

•   Implement any audit recommendations that
    are forthcoming.

•   Maintain probate and payee investigation time
    at 15 days.

Pending Issues and Policy
Considerations for FY 2003-2004

•   Marin’s population is aging and more referrals
    for probate conservatorship are expected.

•   Case-management services for all populations
    are shrinking even though need for
    representative payee services is growing.

•   Lack of Social Security Income (SSI) Board
    and Care beds and Medi-Cal nursing home
    beds require placing people out of county.

•   Limited medical care options for brain injured
    and neurologically impaired people makes it
    difficult for the Public Guardian to serve those
    clients.

•   Identify staff training needs to enhance the
    level of service to our programs, clients, and
    community providers.

•   Continue to evaluate computer/database needs
    both programmatically and department wide
    with the County IT Department.

•   Establish and maintain a communication plan
    with Community and Specialty Care
    Providers.

Pending Issues and Policy
Considerations for FY 2003-04

•   The pattern of utilization has consistently
    increased over the past three years, although
    non-Medi-Cal participation has increased
    significantly and 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 the state,
    with the exception of services provided for
    children with Healthy Families, which is
    17.5%.

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

Considerations for FY 2003-04

The Congressional budget resolution has the
potential to result in substantial cuts to Food
Stamps, The National School Lunch/School
Breakfast program, and Medicaid. If implemented,
the cuts would have adverse effects on WIC
families.

Pending Issues and Policy
Considerations for FY 2003-04

•   The Smoke Free Marin Coalition has studied
    legislative options and has drafted “Marin
    Model Ordinances” and will work with
    coalition members who will promote the new
    policies for adoption in county jurisdictions.
    The ordinances relate to 1) conditional use
    permits for significant tobacco retailers; 2)
    licensing stores (fee will cover enforcement)
    who offer tobacco for sale; and 3) update the
    secondhand smoke ordinance to include some
    “outdoor” areas. Coalition is also
    collaborating with local pharmacists on
    tobacco control efforts. Continued success of
    prevention and treatment programs is
    contingent upon future funding of MSA
    projects.

Major Accomplishments in
FY 2002-03

       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 Pickleweed
       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 the 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.

The increase in clients served last fiscal year (01/02) was a reflection of the increased service provided through the Marin
   Employment Connection to all job seekers and employers in Marin. The implementation of a tracking system resulted in accurate
   reporting of those numbers. The number of clients served in 02/03 is slightly lower, however. Clients using the Center are using it
   more frequently because of a higher unemployment rate and the length of time it takes to secure employment.
The CalWORKs caseload has increased in 02/03 again based on the softening of the economy and the increased service needs of the
   participants. We anticipate this trend to continue into the next fiscal year.

Pending Issues and Policy
Considerations for FY 2003-04

•   The “Timing Out” of CalWORKs recipients
    (persons who have reached either the 5-year
    limit or the 24-month limit) under Welfare
    Reform will continue to have ramifications as
    the number of “timed-out” individuals
    increases. Provision of post-CalWORKs
    services must be assessed for our recipients.

•   The federal Reauthorization of Temporary
    Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) will
    become law in 03/04 and will bring increased
    workload issues. In addition, it will affect our
    clients. For example, one consideration is to
    increase the hours of participation in Welfare-
    to-Work activities to 40 hours per week for
    persons receiving TANF assistance.

•   Expansion of state automation processes (e.g.,
    MEDS Reconciliation) is another workload
    issue for staff.

•   One of the greatest workload issues facing our
    department will come from the resolution to
    the Craig v. Bonta lawsuit, which pertained to

      The Veterans Service Officer has completed

Major Program Goals and Objectives
for FY 2003-2004

•     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.

•     Work to make Veteran’s Administration (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.

                                                       Health & Human Services


Major Program Goals and Objectives
for FY 2003-2004

•   Maintain revenue at current levels despite
    weakened economy.

•   Maximize revenue by use of Medi-Cal
    Administrative Activities (MAA) and raising
    court fees whenever possible.

•   Implement any audit recommendations that
    are forthcoming.

•   Maintain probate and payee investigation time
    at 15 days.

Pending Issues and Policy
Considerations for FY 2003-2004

•   Marin’s population is aging and more referrals
    for probate conservatorship are expected.

•   Case-management services for all populations
    are shrinking even though need for
    representative payee services is growing.

•   Lack of Social Security Income (SSI) Board
    and Care beds and Medi-Cal nursing home
    beds require placing people out of county.

•   Limited medical care options for brain injured
    and neurologically impaired people makes it
    difficult for the Public Guardian to serve those
    clients.

•   Identify staff training needs to enhance the
    level of service to our programs, clients, and
    community providers.

•   Continue to evaluate computer/database needs
    both programmatically and department wide
    with the County IT Department.

•   Establish and maintain a communication plan
    with Community and Specialty Care
    Providers.

Pending Issues and Policy
Considerations for FY 2003-04

•   The pattern of utilization has consistently
    increased over the past three years, although
    non-Medi-Cal participation has increased
    significantly and 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 the state,
    with the exception of services provided for
    children with Healthy Families, which is
    17.5%.

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

Considerations for FY 2003-04

The Congressional budget resolution has the
potential to result in substantial cuts to Food
Stamps, The National School Lunch/School
Breakfast program, and Medicaid. If implemented,
the cuts would have adverse effects on WIC
families.
