Glenn and Gaby Isaacson have a hard time saying no.

Whether taking on management of a multimillion dollar expansion of the Belvedere-Tiburon Library for free, making house calls to help residents recover from physical ailments or donating cruises on their beloved sailboat Q for charity, the Belvedere couple has been making their mark on the peninsula for decades.

"Anyone who asks me to do something, if I have the time, I will do it," Gaby says.

For their contributions, the Isaacsons were selected as Belvedere's Citizens of the Year for 2017. They will be honored alongside Citizen of the Year Emerita Joan Bekins at the city's 39th annual Town Meeting, set for 7 p.m. Jan. 22 at City Hall.

The Tiburon Town Council is expected to appoint someone to fill a one-year vacancy on the board at its meeting tonight, Jan. 17, after interviewing the last of four applicants for the open seat.

However, it was forced to postpone the final interview and discussions on appointment to this evening's meeting after fundraising specialist Erica Mesker, the fourth applicant, told the council she could not make the Jan. 10 meeting. The interview is open to the public.
