When we moved from Terra Linda to the Marinwood Lucas Valley neighborhood, I felt a bit lost without Scotty's, my beloved neighborhood market. I cherished the convenience, selection of food and friendly service they offered. Just about the time I got Bell Market in Marinwood all figured out-they closed!

Here are our 10 restaurants in Cow...

Since a number of my clients have asked me about property taxes and how they apply to floating homes, I thought I would create a helpful blog post outlining how property taxes are applied to floating homes in Marin County, California. Sausalito, CA Houseboats/Floating
in Marin County are considered "real property" and taxed at the same rate as land
based homes which is 1% plus parcel tax, school bonds, special
assessments etc. However, depreciation is taken into account so the
assessed value that the tax base is calculated on can be lower
