At its meeting on September 25, the Sausalito City Council requested additional outreach and the evaluation of multiple sites before making a decision on a six-month pilot program to offer mobile shower service in Sausalito. The issue will be reconsidered at the Council meeting on Tuesday, November 13.

At the direction of the Council, outreach in advance of the November 13 meeting is to include a community workshop and communication with neighbors and businesses surrounding potential mobile shower sites. 

The mobile shower service would be provided by Marin Mobile Care, an operation run by the nonprofit organization Downtown Streets Team. Marin Mobile Care currently offers mobile showers on a regular schedule in Novato and San Rafael. The staff recommendation considered by the Council on September 25 called for mobile showers to be available two mornings per week in Marinship Park. 

Any questions or comments about the proposed mobile shower service may be directed to Lt. Bill Fraass at bfraass@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4170. When available, the date of the community workshop will be published in the Sausalito Currents e-newsletter and on the City website.

News from City Departments

Police. Coffee with a Cop provides a great opportunity for members of the community and officers from the Sausalito Police Department to get together on an informal basis to discuss local issues, build relationships, and drink coffee. The next Coffee with a Cop event will take place from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, October 3 at Taste of Rome, 1000 Bridgeway. Everyone is welcome.

The majority of contacts that law enforcement has with the public happen during emergencies or emotional situations. Those situations are not always the most effective times for relationship building with the community, and some community members may feel that officers are unapproachable on the street. Coffee with a Cop breaks down barriers and allows for a relaxed, one-on-one interaction.

Administration. Measure L – the City of Sausalito Hotel Tax and Tourism Mitigation Measure – is one of two local measures that will be on the Sausalito ballot in November 2018. If enacted, Measure L would generate funds for community priorities like maintaining streets and roads, providing police protection, improving traffic and congestion, and maintaining storm drains.

Measure L updates the existing hotel room tax rate by increasing it from 12% to 14%. Sausalito's hotel room tax rate has not changed in over a decade. If approved by voters, Measure L would ensure that tourists staying in Sausalito pay their fair share for using City of Sausalito services.

If you or a loved one is already experiencing cognitive decline, you'll learn how a comprehensive program can successfully reverse its course. This program is presented by the Sausalito Library.
