Located north of San Francisco, just over the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin County is a dynamic community of involved residents who enjoy a high quality of life marked by beautiful beaches, groves of redwoods and oaks, rolling foothills, and scenic valleys.
The Marin Municipal Water District (MMWD) delivers water to approximately 186,000 residents in a 147-square-mile area of south and central Marin County. The District owns and protects over 20,000 acres of watershed that drain into its seven reservoirs located on Mt. Tamalpais and in west Marin. The District employs 240 full time employees and is governed by a five-member Board of Directors.
Under the policy direction of the Board of Directors, the General Counsel serves as the attorney for and chief legal advisor to the Board of Directors, and as chief legal advisor to the General Manager and District staff. The District General Counsel is appointed by and serves at the pleasure of the Board of Directors, and functionally reports to both the General Manager and Board of Directors. Responsibilities include taking charge of all suits and other legal matters to which the District is a party or in which it is legally interested, giving advice or legal opinions whenever required by the Board, and advising the General Manager and District staff on legal matters connected with the business of the District.
The ideal candidate is a highly organized, detail-oriented, confident and positive team player who is able to handle a heavy workload and think on their feet. High standards of personal and professional ethics and integrity are essential, as is the degree of political sensitivity that is necessary in any public agency. This person will be an excellent oral and written communicator with a flexible attitude, a positive outlook, and a diplomatic demeanor, who consistently and effectively works with the Board, the General Manager, and District staff to ensure that MMWD operates as efficiently as possible within the context of all applicable laws and regulations.
Salary: Commensurate with experience, plus an excellent benefits package.
