Unlicensed, uninsured day laborers? Now what is the real cost of doing things legally? "Friday, October 19, 4:21 p.m. – A man on Edgewood Ave. had workers store an oven in his garage before installing it. Once it was installed, he noticed a nearby case of wine was missing."

That's it? That's the total crime in Mill Valley in a week? How do you do it? I know. You've kept section 8 housing to a minimum, unlike Novato, which has allowed so much affordable housing(AKA wino warehousing) to be built that they had to import section 8 holders from Richmond to fill the vacancies. Look at Novato's police log and then tell me how you feel about Novato housing your nannies, house cleaners, and gardeners (who at least work) Our police and school budget is larger, but Novato gets only half the state money per student than Sausalito. You've made us the dumping ground for your problems and handed us the bill.
