Dear Brisbane Residents,
Last week, there were two cases of thieves dressing up as utility workers to gain access to Bay Area homes. I wanted to take the opportunity to write to you this week with information regarding the burglaries in Oakland and San Carlos in an effort to share information and awareness.
In each case, a person dressed as a utility worker gained access to the customer’s backyard, while a second person entered the home and stole money, coins and/or jewelry. Thankfully, nobody was injured in either case. Investigations are ongoing, and PG&E is working in full cooperation with local law enforcement. In addition to reaching out to you, PG&E is reaching out to local media to educate our customers.
Here is some important information you should know:
- PG&E customers should always ask to see valid identification before allowing anyone claiming to be a PG&E representative inside their home. PG&E employees always carry their identification and are always willing to show it to you.
- If a person claiming to be a PG&E employee has identification and someone still feels uncomfortable, they should call PG&E’s customer service line at 1-800-PGE-5000 to verify an appointment and/or PG&E’s presence in the community.
- Customers who have an appointment with PG&E will receive an automated call back within 48 hours prior to a scheduled visit, or they will receive a personal call from a PG&E gas service representative prior to a scheduled visit.
- Finally, customers with concerns about the legitimacy of a call they receive about a past due bill, a service request or a request for personal information are encouraged to call PG&E at 1-800-PGE-5000.
I hope this information is helpful to you. If you have any questions about this or any other suspicious PG&E-related issues, please do not hesitate to contact the Brisbane Police Department at 415-467-1212.
Brisbane Library Hours of Operation Announcement
San Mateo County Library is pleased to announce new operating hours for the Brisbane Library.
Input from the community has been a critical part of the decision making process and we thank everyone who participated in providing feedback. In reviewing the results of the May 2013 Brisbane Library Open Hours Community Survey, 69% of survey respondents indicated they would use the library more if the library were open different hours and 70% of survey respondents preferred that the changed hours include additional morning weekday and weekend hours.
After assessing the May 2013 Brisbane Library Open Hours Community Survey, collecting and reviewing current Brisbane library usage patterns, and analyzing open hours of neighboring libraries, we have been able to approve updated library open hours.
New Hours for the Brisbane Library
The new hours will go into effect after the Labor Day Holiday on Tuesday, 3 September 2013 and include 7 new hours of morning service. We look forward to welcoming even more of the community, more frequently, in September. Please contact Carine Risley, Brisbane Library Manager, for additional information. email@example.com or 415.467.2060

We apologize in advance for the inconvenience, and we appreciate your patience while this work is being done. If you have any concerns or questions, please call the Public Works Department at (415) 508-2130.
The Brisbane Parks & Recreaton Department would like to remind parents that school starts August 22, and so does our Club Rec. after school program.

Beginning later this year, Caltrans will activate the signals currently being installed at the on-ramps to Highway 101 between Highway 92 in San Mateo and the San Francisco city limit, including four locations in Brisbane. Ramp metering will be activated at the Harney Avenue and Sierra Point Parkway northbound on-ramps and the Beatty Avenue and Sierra Point Parkway/Lagoon Road southbound on-ramps. The ramp metering will operate on weekdays during morning and evening commute hours. The signals will start operating in late 2013. Specific information, including the date of the ramp metering turn-on and the scheduled hours of operation will be provided before the actual start up. Caltrans will also provide contact information for concerns and questions from the public during the fine-tuning process, once the system is turned on.
Ramp metering is necessary to evenly distribute the flow of traffic onto the highway. It will be used to handle the large volume of cars that enter Highway 101 every day and aims to prevent backups and heavy traffic.
Starting on July 26th, the Farmers' Market will go from taking place on Thursdays to Fridays, so that they fall in line with Concerts in the Park. The market hours will still be from 3:00pm - 7:00pm, though some of the prepared food vendors may opt to stick around until the end of the concert (8:30pm). Food trucks are also expected to be in attendance, though it's still too early at this point to say which ones exactly will be there. What we do know is that there will be a vendor selling churros and cotton candy, the Lions will be BBQ'ing hot dogs, the Women's Club will have cookies and refreshments, and there will be weekly dinner specials offered from Julie's Deli (see menu below; you get everything for $10 and they're ready for pick-up starting at 5PM), Melissa's Taqueria (all combination plates will be $7.75), and Mama Mia Pizza (free can of soda with any purchase).
July 26th: Rigatoni and meatmalls and a side salad
August 2nd: BBQ Tri Tip, baked potato, and corn on the cob
August 9th: Fried chicken, bbq baked beans, and coleslaw
August 16th: BBQ pork spare ribs, potato salad, and corn on the cob
August 23rd: Beef stroganoff with egg noodles and peas and carrots

Also starting on July 26th will be "Walking on Water". It will be set up along San Francisco Ave. near the picnic tables. Give your best shot standing up in a ball afloat a foot of water. We hear it's a lot of fun (and a good workout), and just as fun for the spectators! And it's not just for the kids - there are larger-sized balls for adults! The charge for both kids and adults is $7.
The 2013 Concerts in the Park will be combined with the weekly Brisbane Farmers' Market, and will include food trucks and a "Walking on Water" feature...don't miss out!! Of course, the Lions will be serving up hot dogs and the Women's Club will have beverages and cookies (donations for both are appreciated!). The fun starts on Friday, July 26th and goes through Friday, August 30th.

Get ready for a sweet community event on Saturday, July 13th! Tony Lukezic, Brisbane resident, has been working with staff to organize a Downtown Brisbane Car Show that will take place on San Francisco Ave. from 9am - 4pm. He's anticipating about 100 cars parked along both sides of the street, from Old County Rd. up to Mariposa St. They're start getting into position starting at 7:30am. The Mothers of Brisbane will be selling sodas and water for $1 throughout the day (proceeds to benefit Brisbane Elementary School, with the proceeds from car show entrants benefitting the Brisbane Skatepark). Sound Productions will be emceeing the event and providing tunes from the 70s, 80s and 90s starting at 11am. The event is KID-FRIENDLY, with 2 jump houses set up in the Community Park. The Fire Dept. is also lending their antique 1937 fire engine, which will be parked in the intersection of Plumas Ave. and San Francisco Ave. for people to take pictures in front of. So, be sure to come on out and walk along San Francisco to see all the cars that will be parked there, and enjoy the music, drinks, and atmosphere!
A note from Brisbane Artist Rosanna Lyons, who will be displaying her paintings in the City Hall "art gallery" (50 Park Place, Brisbane) during the month of July:
Please join me for a fun evening of art with appetizers and wine at Brisbane City Hall on July the 10th from 6pm 'till 8pm.
I am an Irish artist who lives in Brisbane and would like to share my recent paintings with you.
I am greatly influenced by the figure and most recently dancers, after I rediscovered my childhood love of dance and became an adult ballet dancer myself.
I like to examine the pain behind the beauty of ballet.
I have worked since I was a teenager in effects animation at Disney, Dreamworks, on the Simpsons and The Smurfs among other productions.
I work from my home in Brisbane and my studio at Hunter's Point Shipyard and am currently exhibiting at City Art on Valencia in The Mission district.
Hope to see you at my show here in Brisbane!
