The Tamalpais Community Services District will receive $168,294 from the California Fire-Safe Council to fund a fire safety program for the 2010-11 project year.
The 18-month project - which is a continuation of the fire-safe program started in 2005 - begins after Oct. 1 and will allow the district to inventory fire-susceptible lands in Tamalpais Valley, work with homeowners and agencies to do fire risk evaluations with partners at the Southern Marin Fire District, establish area homeowner groups and coordinate efforts with state and county agencies.
Project Manager Jim Kasper will oversee the program and can be reached at 388-6393.
