Marin/Sonoma Mosquito and Vector Control District Board of Trustees

Notice of Vacancy

Application Materials

California’s Mosquito Abatement Act of 1915 allowed groups of communities faced with serious mosquito problems to form their own regional abatement organization as an "independent special district", separate from other government agencies. The Marin-Sonoma Abatement District was launched at that time, the first in the State.
Today a Board of Trustees, appointed by the elected officials of each city and county within this service area, oversees the program. The trustees hire an administrator to organize and carry out an effective control program, and to develop a budget adequate to staff and support the program. There are currently 25 employees of the District. The District maintains a small but highly trained unit responsible for the prevention, elimination or control of mosquitoes and other arthropods known to be potential carriers of infectious diseases, or presenting a public nuisance. It covers some 960 square miles with a human population of more than 600,000 and handles approximately 3,000 service requests from the public each year. For more information about the District, go to

The City Council is accepting applications from residents interesting in representing Mill Valley on this Board. Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of every other month at the district office in Cotati. Members receive updates on the district’s programs, such as West Nile Virus, and oversee the fiscal security of the district. The appointment will be made by the City Council. Please notify the City Clerk at 388-4033 if you are interested.

Applications should be returned to the City Clerk’s office; position is open until filled.
