After hearing public and staff testimony, the Board authorized implementation of a new shared services model for the provision of Marin’s Public Health Laboratory services with the Napa-Solano-Yolo County Public Health Laboratory. As part of their action, the Board also directed staff to provide future bi-annual reports to the Board that would include monitoring and water testing requirements.
