City Manager Update

Holiday Hours

On behalf of the City of Larkspur, we wish you a joyous Holiday Season and a Happy New Year. City offices will be closed to the public from Friday, December 23rd through Monday, January 2nd. During the closure, the Building Department will be available to conduct building inspections on December 27th through 29th, and December 30th (morning only.) To request an inspection, call 927-5033 at least one day prior to the requested inspection date. Library holiday hours can be accessed here

"Coexisting with Coyotes" Meeting Video Now Online

On December 12th, the Town of Corte Madera and the City of Larkspur co-hosted a community meeting, “Coexisting with Coyotes,” at Corte Madera Town Council Chambers. The informational forum included a presentation from the Marin Coyote Coalition, a partnership of the Marin Humane Society, Marin County Parks, and Project Coyote, followed by Q&A with the public. Video of the meeting and additional resources on coyote awareness are available on the City’s website at: www.cityoflarkspur.org/coyotes

Christmas Tree Recycling

Instead of tossing it in the garbage, consider having your Christmas tree chipped or composted. Trees will be collected at the curb on your regular yard waste pickup day through the month of January. Trees can also be dropped off from Monday, January 2nd through Thursday, January 12th at Piper Park, Niven Park, and Fire Station 16.  If trees are greater than 6 feet in length, please cut them in half. Remove all metal stands, plastic tree bags, and ornaments. Flocked trees will not be accepted. Zero Waste Marin has compiled a comprehensive list of curbside and drop-off disposal options for your tree here.

Marin Storm

Last Thursday's storm resulted in impressive rainfall for the area. While the total rainfall did not translate to significant events statistically, the amount of rain that fell within a 6-hour period at the height of the storm was at a 20 year return level- meaning it was an amount of rainfall within a six hour period that we would on average see only once every 20 years. The City's storm drain system performed well during the rainy weather, with some flooding only occurring in the expected areas of the City and subsiding shortly after the rain ended. Public Works staff monitored flooded areas throughout Thursday for irregularities and needed maintenance. 

CMPA Citizen Police Academy

The Central Marin Police Authority is still accepting applications for the Citizen Police Academy. The eight-week Academy begins in February and provides an inside look at the Authority’s functions and operational procedures. Applications available here.
