City Manager Update

Library Director Retirement
I would like to begin on a personal note to express my deep gratitude and appreciation to Library Director Janice Akel.  Janice is retiring today.  In her three years leading the Larkspur Library, she guided us through numerous changes that have improved and enhanced our service to the public.  Her enthusiasm for offering programs through the Library produced a catalog of events that is more than double what we offered when she started.  We will miss her and wish her well in the next phase of her life.

Rx Take-Back Day

Clean it out and drop it off!  National Prescription Drug Take-back Day is Saturday, October 26.  RX Take-Back Day is a safe, convenient, and responsible way to dispose of your unused or expired prescription drugs.  Old and unused prescription medications are a public safety issue, leading to accidental poisoning overdose, and abuse.  Pharmaceutical drugs can be just as dangerous as street drugs when taken without a prescription or a doctor’s supervision.

The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. On the last Take-Back Day in April 2019, nearly 470 tons (more than 935,000 pounds) of unused or expired medications were collected nationwide.

You can drop off pills and patches at either of our stations between 10 AM and 2 PM on the 26th. Please, no liquids or sharp objects. The Larkspur station is located at 250 Doherty Drive, and our San Anselmo station is 525 San Anselmo Avenue.

FIRESafe MARIN Home Hardening Workshop

Save the Date: Tuesday, November 19 for a free seminar hosted by FIRESafe MARIN on home hardening against fire. Recognizing that home-hardening through improved architectural design, ember and ignition resistant material selection, and retrofitting existing buildings are the most important factors in improving home survival during wildfires, FIRESafe MARIN has developed a seminar and training curriculum to introduce homeowners to these concepts.
 
Taught by experts in the field of wildfire, home hardening, and building science, this seminar will help Marin homeowners to:
 
  • Identify their home’s vulnerabilities to wildfires and embers
  • Introduce ignition and ember resistant design and materials
  • Provide home-hardening and retrofitting resources
  • Encourage building modifications to reduce the likelihood of structural ignitions during wildfires
  • Manufacturer representatives will be on-site to display fire-resistant building materials
 
Weather permitting, a live fire demonstration will be conducted at 5 PM to demonstrate the differences between fire-resistant and ordinary construction.
