Town Council Decisions

Below are a couple of decisions from the Tuesday, January 14 Town Council meeting
  • Town Council upheld the October 21, 2019 Planning Commission decision to approve design review for a new single-family residence with an attached two car garage and a grading permit for 150 cubic yards of cut and 85 cubic yards of fill at 61 Hillside Avenue, Assessor’s Parcel Nos. 007-115-28 and part of 007-115-23 with the additional conditions: The applicant shall pull back the eastern face of deck, behind the garage, and the floors under it by one foot as offered in correspondence from the applicant to the neighbor in Attachment 8 to the staff report, page 21 and 22; the rear garage door is not approved; and the applicant shall include 53 Hillside Avenue and the properties downslope of 61 and 63 Hillside Avenue as additional insureds on their construction policy to the extent permitted by law.
  • Town Council directed staff to submit to the Planning Commission a draft resolution that would amend the Town of San Anselmo General Plan to prohibit cannabis business uses in the Town, except medical delivery businesses located outside of the Town; and to make a recommendation for an Ordinance of the Town Council of the Town of San Anselmo Amending Municipal Code Title 10 (Planning and Zoning) Chapter 3 (Zoning) Article 18 (Cannabis Regulations) to delete Section 10-3.1801(F) That Allows Cannabis Business Applicants to Apply to Amend Town Zoning Regulations.”

Organic Waste Cart

New Organic Waste Program for 2020

Starting on January 1, 2020, residents of incorporated San Anselmo can opt to receive a second or third green waste cart as part of their basic bundled service package with Marin Sanitary Service. Customers who want the third green waste cart must make the request by December 31, 2020 to be able to have the third cart as part of their basic bundled service. After that date, customers will be entitled to two green waste carts as part of the bundled service, and will be able to rent additional carts (up to 4).
In summary, customers who have secured up to three (3) total green waste carts before December 31, 2020, will keep this secured level of service at no additional cost until the customer terminates service with the Marin Sanitary Service. This change is part of the new program for the collection of organic waste (food and yard waste). Beginning in 2020, Marin Sanitary will no longer collect organic waste from customer-owned cans. You will be receiving more information from MSS and the Town throughout 2020 on this program change.
It is important to note that these changes are for customers in the incorporated town of San Anselmo. This does not apply to customers who may have a San Anselmo address but reside in unincorporated Marin County, such as residents of Sleepy Hollow.

Where does it go Joe?

Recycle, Compost or Garbage?

You want to do the right thing for the environment, but it’s hard to keep up with what material goes in what container. But, it’s very important that we avoid contaminating our recycling or compostable streams.
When in doubt, use Marin Sanitary Service’s handy “Where Does It Go, Joe?” online tool to find out what material goes where.
