2012 Slurry.jpg2012 Slurry Seal Program

American Asphalt is under contract with the City to provide slurry sealing of certain streets for this year's project. The Project is targeted for the week of May 21, 2012.

Slurry Seal is an asphalt sealcoat that is a very economical surface treatment that prolongs the life of the asphalt by stopping erosion of the pavement and oxidation from the sun. Timely preventative maintenance like this helps avoid very costly street rebuilding in the future.

We realize the inconvenience caused by limiting access to your street during the project. Please consider that the inconvenience caused at this time is very small compared to what could occur later if this required protection is not conducted.

Driving or walking on the new slurry material before it has cured will damage the street and will stick to your shoes, be splattered up onto your car and will track into and onto driveways, carpets, and floors. The material is highly adhesive but can be removed from vehicles with tar removers available from local auto parts stores.

Streets to be sealed will be posted "No Parking" for 2 to 3 days in advance of the project. Please watch for signage. Road Closures may start as early as 7 am. With reasonable drying conditions, streets should be reopened by 5 pm. Pedestrian access will be eliminated on streets without sidewalks. Please do not allow water to run onto the pavement during slurry sealing work. Weather conditions may change the schedule.

Impacted streets are:

* Beach Road from Main Street to Teal/San Rafael Avenue
* Community Road from Mallard Road to Leeward Road
* Bayview Avenue from Laurel to Beach Road
* Bella Vista from Fern to Hawthorne Lane
* Belvedere Avenue from Oak to Pine Avenue

Existing pavement markings will be removed preceding the slurry work and then replaced. The project is targeted for the week of May 21, 2012. For questions, please contact Public Works Manager, Scott Derdenger at (415) 435-4111 or via email at

MCE Logo.jpgQuestions About Marin Clean Energy?

Marin Clean Energy has a session coming up for Marin County residents -

Date: Tuesday, May 22
Time: 6:30 pm
Location: Mill Valley City Hall, 26 Corte Madera Avenue in Mill Valley

The information sessions will provide residents the opportunity to learn more about Marin Clean Energy (MCE), a program to collectively buy renewable power on behalf of Marin County residents, cities and towns.

Under the program, all Marin County residents will be automatically enrolled in the program, or they can choose to opt out and remain with PG&E. The program presents residents with two options - a "Light Green" option, with 50 percent renewable power, or a "Dark Green" option, with 100 percent renewable power.

MCE will offer electric service to all Marin County customers this July. Every electric customer in Marin will be enrolled in MCE's Light Green 50 percent renewable energy option unless the customer chooses to opt out. Customers will receive three notices from MCE prior to their enrollment and these will be delivered in early April, mid-April, and mid-May. Customers who do not opt out will also receive two notices after their enrollment with Marin Clean Energy in late July and late August. The first two notices will be in the form of a letter and the final three will be in the form of a post card.

To learn more about Marin Clean Energy or to opt out of the program, visit or call (888) 632-3674.
