Massage Ordinance

Printer-friendly version

The City Council is considering an Ordinance that would regulate massage professionals and massage businesses in the City.  Specifically, it would mandate that persons offering massage in the City be State-certified and that massage businesses employ exclusively State-certified massage professionals to perform massages, that massage businesses and massage professionals apply for and obtain a revocable certificate of registration with the City, and that massage establishments abide by certain operating and sanitation standards. 

This Ordinance was first introduced at the May 19th Council Meeting and the Council will consider adoption of the Ordinance at its June 19th meeting.

The proposed Ordinance will not affect properly licensed physicians, chiropractors, nurses, barbers, beauticians and certain other individuals and businesses while they are engaged in practices within the scope of their licenses.

If you have questions regarding this proposed Ordinance, please contact the City Clerk’s Office at (415) 508-2113.

Wildland Fire Awareness Event

Printer-friendly version

On Saturday, June 7, beginning at 9am and concluding around noon, the Brisbane Office of Emergency Services and North County Fire Authority will conduct the annual Community Wildfire Awareness Event.  This year's event appropriately takes place on Disaster Preparedness Day, being held from 10am - 2pm at the San Mateo County Event Center (in conjunction with the County Fair).

 

With the 10 major fires in San Diego County this past week, we are reminded that we need to always Be Ready for a disaster.  The Wildfire Awareness Event, in addition to wildland fire awareness, provides community outreach and public education regarding wildland fire preparedness and planning.  As part of community outreach, important information will be provided by fire companies to those residents living on Margaret and Paul Avenues and Kings Rd. (from the 100 block through the 300 block) so expect a knock on your door, as firefighters will be delivering information to these homes which are adjacent to a Wildland Urban Interface area.  Click here to read the letter that was sent to all Brisbane addresses from Mayor Clarke Conway.  Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Brisbane Office of Emergency Services at (415) 508-2131 or the North County Fire Authority Prevention Services Bureau at (650) 991-8138.

Weekend Farmers' Market

Printer-friendly version

UPDATE 5/20 - Help spread the word!

UPDATE 5/16 - Council has given approval for a weekend market to start, and the market manager has chosen to have the weekend market take place on Sundays, from 9am - 1pm, with the kickoff being on June 8th.  A location in downtown Brisbane is still being determined.  Stay tuned...

In the April CityNews publication that is arriving in your mailboxes, along with a Wednesday e-mail blast about the market, there was mention about West Coast Farmers Market Association starting a Saturday farmers' market beginning on May 10th on the first block of Park Lane (see above image).  That market will be held off until a determination is made at the May 5th City Council meeting, which, if direction to move forward with a Saturday market is given, the earliest the market would start would be May 24th due to permits needing to be pulled by the Health Department.  We apologize for any confusion.  If you have thoughts about a Saturday morning market starting in Brisbane, please leave a comment below or come to the Council meeting and let the Council and market manager hear your thoughts.  Thank you!

National Public Works Week

Printer-friendly version

Every year, the city recognizes the efforts of the individuals whose work is deemed successful when no one notices it.  That's right, the Public Works Dept. knows it is serving the community well when we forget that it actually takes someone's time and effort to ensure that our water, sewer and storm drain systems are properly functioning, that our roadways are safe and driveable, and that our streetlights are illuiminating as they should, just to name a few things the Public Works Dept. oversees.  Public Works Director Randy Breault now has oversight of the Marina as well, so employees from both departments were present at Monday's Council meeting to receive a Proclamation from the City Council.  Thank you to each of you, who quietly and daily live out the theme of National Public Works Week 2014, "Building for Today, Planning for Tomorrow".

You may have noticed road work being performed on Bayshore and heard thermoplastic striping being ground as you drove by.  This work is being done in preparation for slurry sealing that will take place on several streets in Brisbane between May 14 – 16 as part of the 2013 Pavement Maintenance Project which the Council approved last Fall.  The area on Bayshore Blvd. just south of Old County Rd. to Guadalupe Canyon Parkway will be worked on for the remainder of the week, so please use caution when driving through this area and be aware of lane closures and work crews.  More detailed information including other affected streets will be posted to the city’s website on Friday, May 9th.  Thank you for your patience as the city completes these important roadway improvements!
