Marinwood CSD meeting July 13, 2021 Opps!


Marinwood CSD meeting of July 13, 2021.   Marinwood CSD manager Eric Dreikosen admits the construction plan is NOT APPROVED due to problems with the design.  Just a few months prior he represented the plan as fully approved and urged the acceptance of a $1.3 million construction contract PLUS another $650k loan for "additional work".  The newly elected Marinwood CSD board members were pressured to adapt the plan due to "Rising Costs".  The Marinwood Maintenance Shed project will be THE MOST EXPENSIVE IN MARIN COUNTY history.  Essentially it is a very expensive garage to house landscaping equipment.  The huge cost is due to overdesign using exotic architectural materials and building a kitchenette and shower room.  The unusual design features make the actual movement of vehicles and equipment difficult and the essential function of moving materials virtually impossible.  Opps!
