So long, summer!

ELLIOT KARLAN / FOR THE ARK

Kids stream off the bus on the first day of school at Reed Elementary School in Tiburon on Aug. 18 as staff take head counts. Many parents walked or biked with their kids the first two days, which were minimum days, so this week will be the school year's first true test of the Yellow Bus Challenge traffic-reduction program. Tiburon and Belvedere police are also warning of crackdowns on traffic-safety violations to keep things running smoothly; see the story on page 5.

New late-evening ferries begin running between Tiburon, S.F.

_______

Blue & Gold Fleet's new late-evening ferries are now making runs between Tiburon and San Francisco's Pier 41.
In a deal announced late Aug. 19, Blue & Gold was to begin offering new trips on Aug. 22, after The Ark's press deadline, in an effort to bring more San Francisco residents and tourists from the city to downtown Tiburon.
ACV Argo Tiburon LLC, which owns the Tiburon Main Street buildings that house Guaymas, Servino Ristorante and Luna Blu, is also the owner of the Tiburon ferry landing. The real-estate investment firm reportedly demanded the later runs from Blue & Gold as a condition of renewing its dock lease, which it needed to lock down ahead of turning over commuter service to the Golden Gate Bridge, Highway and Transportation District.

Agency wants $2.4 mil in improvements to Cove pumps after 2014 flood

_______

Bel Aire's flood control advisory board has officially recommended the county OK up to $2.4 million in upgrades to a pump station that catastrophically failed in December 2014, flooding dozens of homes and nearby businesses at The Cove Shopping Center and leading to a recently settled lawsuit with several business owners.
But first, the board opened up the floodgates to months' worth of frustration with Marin officials.
Members of the local Flood Control Zone 4 advisory board — a division of the countywide Flood Control and Water Conservation District that covers the Tiburon neighborhood of Bel Aire and portions of Strawberry — were incensed at their Aug. 11 meeting that they had been left out of official discussions of the lawsuit, which the Marin Board of Supervisors, acting in their capacity as the countywide flood district board, settled in late July for $255,000.

Property owner sues sewer agency over $175,000
in overcharges

By DEIRDRE McCROHAN

_______

A Tiburon apartment-complex owner that was overcharged some $175,000 in sewer fees over more than a decade is suing the Sanitary District No. 5 of Marin to recover money the owner says is still due.
Tiburon 21 Marinero LLC, which owns 21 units on Marinero Circle off Lyford Drive, filed suit in Marin Superior Court on March 23 after learning that San 5 would refund just $23,784 of the claim.
Though the district board continues to discuss the case in closed sessions, district lawyer Benjamin Stock is holding fast to its position that the apartment complex owner took too long to discover the error.
