Legislative Resources

The City of Mill Valley is a member of the League of California Cities. The League hosts City Caucus meetings, which include League lobbyists and contract lobbyists representing cities. During the legislative session, the City Caucus meets regularly to discuss bills affecting cities. Participating lobbyists share information to ensure that the best results for all cities are achieved legislatively.
At this time, the City of Mill Valley does not employ a lobbyist on its staff or as a consultant. However, through our participation in the Marin County Council of Mayors and Councilmembers' Legislative Committee, the City of Mill Valley spends $3000/year to support the activities of League lobbyists to serve as educational resources for City leaders and to represent the interests of Marin cities in State legislature.
