The MMWD Board of Directors has established two new committees to focus on particular topics of current interest: a Climate Change Committee and a Compensation Committee.
The Climate Change Committee will consider MMWD’s potential vulnerability to the effects of climate change on water supply and district operations. The committee will investigate the current state of climate science to help the district understand what that science tells us—and doesn’t tell us—about factors such as sea level rise, precipitation, temperature and climate variability. The committee will investigate how changes in these factors may affect the district in the short and long term and evaluate potential adaptation responses.
The Compensation Committee will review employee salary and benefit issues, including retirement plans and health benefits. The committee will analyze various options for improving MMWD’s salary and benefit programs, including identifying mechanisms to reduce the district’s unfunded liabilities for employee benefits. Members of the committee may also participate in countywide or statewide activities on these topics, such as the newly formed committee on benefits formed by the Marin County Council of Mayors and Councilmembers.
The committees will likely begin meeting in March, at which time they will set their meeting schedules for the year. Find board and committee meeting schedules on our website.
