The City of Mill Valley and the Town of Tiburon are pleased to announce a shared services agreement for a new position - the Climate Action Sustainability Coordinator - to lead efforts to organize, manage, and implement GreenHouse Gas emission reduction measures and adaptation plans established in the Climate Action Plans for the two agencies.

“The new Sustainability Coordinator position is an important step in supporting the work of the Climate Action Plan,” Vice Mayor Urban Carmel said at the January 9, 2023 City Council meeting. “Not only is it important to take action in our jurisdictions, but it can really move progress forward if we work in collaboration with other cities and towns across Marin County.”

Councils for both Mill Valley and Tiburon have recognized the need for a champion to lead conversations, develop key stakeholder connections, build community support through a cohesive communication plan, and usher in action plans, programs, and policies to drive measurable change, both in the local agencies and regionally.

“Our Climate Action Plan includes an ambitious list of actions the Town may take while working to meet the goals established in the Plan,” Tiburon Town Manager Greg Chanis said. “We are looking forward to the partnership so that both agencies can make meaningful progress towards achieving our goals.”

Combining efforts through an interagency agreement to share the services of the Climate Action Sustainability Coordinator is the most effective and efficient use of public funds toward this effort. 

“The Sustainability Coordinator will be the key to action and implementation,” Mill Valley City Manager Todd Cusimano said. “Another really exciting part of this role is education - this new role will be a community-facing position working with local organizations and bringing the conversation to a regional level.”

Mill Valley will serve as the host agency for the position, meaning the individual would be an employee of Mill Valley. The actual cost of the position will be shared by each City/Town based on the total hours worked for each agency, but is envisioned to be a 50/50 split. Detailed information about the position and how to apply are described below.
