Ross Valley Sanitary Board May OK $70 Million in Bonds Before Power Shift

Do you think the board should wait and vote on $70 million in revenue bonds after newly elected board member Mary Sylla is sworn in? Tell us in the comments!


The Ross Valley Sanitary District board may OK $70 million in revenue bonds Wednesday (see agenda at the right), a move that would be made before an upcoming power shift on the board, according to the Marin IJ

Mary Sylla, who was elected to the district board in the June 5 election, won’t be sworn into office until the board’s July 25 meeting, the IJ reported. Sylla beat Marcia Johnson, who was running for re-election.

After Sylla is sworn in, the power on the five-member board will shift to those against issuing the bonds without strong ratepayer support, according to the IJ.

Board members Frank Egger and Pamela Meigs told the IJ they think the board should wait to vote on the bonds after Sylla is behind the dais.

"Obviously, it's a move to sell the bonds before the new board is sworn in," Egger said. "We need to certify the election and swear in new board members before any action is taken on the bonds."
