An Open Letter Presented to the Marinwood CSD and taxpayers on March 13, 2018

Dear Chief Roach, Erick Driekosen ,  Marinwood CSD Board members and Marinwood CSD taxpayers:

As promised, here is a quote for the Marinwood Firehouse Kitchen with all wood cabinets, granite countertops and an all stainless steel Frigidaire appliances.  Installations are generally booked 30 days in advance. The Marinwood Firefighters could have their new kitchen as early as tax day, April 15th.

Cabinets & Delivery $3599.26
Garnet Tops              $564.82
Installation Labor      $3800.88
Appliance Bundle     $1944.18

Total Cabinets, Granite Countertops with All New Appliances including installation $9909.14

Price does not include incidental electric and plumbing and wallboard repair.

This quote is under the DIR limit of $25,000  and  leaves over $15,000 for plumbing, electrical and/or savings for other Marinwood CSD projects

Quotes received on 3/13/2018 from www.thegraniteexpo.com    They have a massive showroom with many choices. The quotes are for midrange all wood cabinetry and granite.  A personal visit to their showroom  can provide you with first hand experience with their quality.  They are the number one wholesale/retail provider of kitchens in Northern California.

1368 40th Street
Emeryville, CA 94608


The district can save over $50,000 in taxpayer funds  from the previous DIR proposal and invest the savings in new playground equipment, an outdoor stage, a new maintenance shed,  or add to our cash reserves.

Its easy, inexpensive and a popular choice for contractors and homeowners.  Why not save the taxpayers money?

P.S.  As a special bonus, I am including a quote for a 24' steel maintenance shed for $11,520. that is used by municipal parks departments the world over.  There is no need for a custom shed when serviceable sheds can be had for a fraction of the cost of an architect designed shed.  No need to spend $100,000s on a utility structure. It can be hidden behind a berm and planting next to the fire house.

The firefighters will get their "Martha Stewart" kitchen makeover at a fraction of the previous estimates.
