Thank You to Quinn & Justin

Printer-friendly version

The City was fortunate to have two interns spend their summers with us.  One of them, Justin Yuen, may be a familar face as this is actually his third summer in the Public Works Department.  He started as a junior in high school through the Metropolitan Transportation Commission's (MTC) High School Internship Program and will be soon entering his sophomore year at UC Davis.  This summer, Justin spent the bulk of his time testing the reflectivity of our street signs and updating the Public Work's street sign database so the department knows which signs may have faded with time and need replacing.  He also researched "cold in-place asphalt recycling", which is a more environmentally-friendly process to repair streets as it takes the old, distressed asphalt and recycles it into new asphalt base that’s ready for a surface treatment.  This removes the need to haul away the old asphalt and then paying for the new asphalt to be trucked back and installed.

When recounting his time with the City this summer, Justin said, "I'm glad I was able to learn more about the Public Works Department and city government practices and make a difference in this incredible community."

Quinn Haaga will be starting her junior year at the University of Oregon and had her hands in a variety of projects in the City Manager and Community Development departments this summer, most notably drafting a Climate Friendly Purchasing Guide for the City and presenting it at the August 20, 2015 City Council meeting.  Quinn also lent a hand researching various items for the City Manager, Community Development, and Public Works Departments.  She also compiled a 2015-16 Budget-in-Brief two-page document, which will be posted to the website soon.

“My internship this summer provided me with invaluable experience and knowledge working with a local government.  I never thought the City of Brisbane would become such a big part of my life!  I have really enjoyed working and interacting with everyone in City Hall and the Brisbane community as a whole," said Quinn.

Thank you to you both for your great work this summer; the both of you really made a difference and we wish you the best as you return to school!

Crocker Park Recreational Trail

Crocker Park Recreational Trail feels a lot more firm and compact these days.  That's because this past week, crews were out on the trail grading the previous railway ballast rock to create an even surface, and then spreading quarry fines to help with the compaction.  Similar work had been done in previous years, but this year, the entire trail was compacted (and it will take regular maintenance to keep it in good working condition).  The fines are from the local quarry/EBI Aggregate so only materials indigenous to the area are being used.  It is important to note that the crews completing the work were aware of the delicate nature of the frog habitat and therefore did not work in that area behind Cypress.  They also de-chlorinated the water they used for the project so as to avoid any contamination issues to the surrounding areas.  See below for photos of the work as it progressed this week:

Sept. is National Preparedness Month

Printer-friendly version

"Don't Wait.  Communicate.  Make your Emergency Plan Today."

That is the theme for this year's National Preparedness Month, and we encourage you to commit to increasing the level of emergency preparedness for yourself and your family.  The grass fire that took place today on 280 near 92 should be a reminder that emergencies can happen at any time, and close to home.
