Printer-friendly version

The Public Works Department will be turning off the water from 240-293 Santa Clara St. on Thursday, December 18th from 10am - 2pm to make necessary improvements to the local water mains.  Notices have been delivered to all the addresses affected by the temporary water shutdown.  If you have any questions regarding this shutdown, please call Jerry Flanagan in the Public Works Dept. at (415) 508-2130.  We apologize ahead for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.

How to Submit Service Requests

Printer-friendly version

Since November of 2011, the City has been accepting electronic service requests via vendor Government Outreach, which provides the ability for the public to do so on the computer or via their smartphone and the app, GORequest.  Last year, the City received 252 service requests via GORequest!  This tutorial will cover how you also can submit service requests on your mobile device...and you'll see how easy it is.

  1. Download the GORequest free app in either the App Store (Apple) or Google Play Store (Android), depending on your device.
  2. When opning the app, click "Allow" to allow GORequest to access your location (this will save you from having to enter your location each time).
  3. Click "New Issue".
  4. Click "Add Photo" to take a picture of the issue you'd like to report (or select one already saved in your photo library).
  5. Click "Select Issue" and choose from the various options.
  6. Click "Add comments" to give a brief description of the issue.
  7. Click "Add contact information" - name, e-mail address, and phone number (this only needs to be entered the first time you submit a request).
  8. Click "Submit" in the top right-hand corner.

You're all done!

If you entered your e-mail address, you'll get a confirmation from "Brisbane" indicating that the City has received your service request.  Once the issue has been resolved, you will receive a second notification. 

Thanks for your assistance in reporting what needs fixing around town and for using GORequest!

Winter Street Sweeping

Printer-friendly version

We’re going to have our street sweeper, the City of South San Francisco, do an early winter sweep of the upper streets in Central Brisbane on Tuesday, December 16th from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.  The included streets are Kings Rd, Trinity Rd, Humboldt Rd. and Sierra Point Rd.  As we did last year, we are asking for people to voluntarily move their cars to allow for the most efficient removal of debris from the shoulders or curbs.

Also, due to the holidays, the second commercial street sweeping day in December will be Tuesday Dec. 23 instead of the normal Wednesday Dec. 24, from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m.  The commercial street sweeping includes Visitacion Ave., San Bruno Ave., Old County Rd. in Central Brisbane, as well as Bayshore Blvd., Guadalupe Canyon Pkwy., Crocker Industrial Park, Sierra Point, and the Tunnel Ave. area.  People are encouraged to move their cars off of any affected streets on that date to allow for the most debris to be picked up from the gutters.  On Visitacion Ave. no citations will be issued on either the 23rd or the 24th.  Thank you for your assistance in removing debris from Brisbane's roadways!

Farmers' Market News

Printer-friendly version

With Thanksgiving falling on a farmers' market day next week, the vendors have decided to come to Brisbane the Tuesday before Thanksgiving (11/25) from 2:30pm - 6:30pm so you can stock up on all your fresh veggies, fruits, and PIES!  So be sure to stop by the market; the vendors will be very glad to see you, especially after yesterday's market where they saw very little foot traffic.  The market is currently year-round, which means the vendors will be there, rain or shine.  Here's who you can expect to see on Tuesday:

  • Mountain Fresh Organics (all your local, organic fruits and veggies including potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, onion, garlic, strawberries, and squash)
  • Rojas Family Farms (Fuji apples, Valencia oranges, pomegranates, persimmons, grapes, and plums)
  • Shampa's Pies (sweet potato, chocolate mousse, lemon chest, and strawberry lemon pies)
  • Sapore Messo (olive oils, balsamic vinaigrettes, and decorative gift bags)
  • Cobblestone Bakery (he'll have plenty of pies, including pumpkin!) Added Monday, 11/24

There will be a SPECIAL MARKET BASKET DRAWING FOR RIDGE RESIDENTS ON 11/25Just complete this form and drop it off at the Information Booth for a chance to win a free market basket chock full of goodies from the farmers' market!

The Sunday market will have its last market of the season this Sunday, 11/23.  Next year, the Market Manager will decide along with the Council Subcommittee how best to move forward with a weekend market, if any.  If you have any suggestions for day (Saturday vs. Sunday), year-round vs. seasonal, or preferred times, please leave them below.

Remember, the market needs the support of the community if it's going to stick around at all!

2014 State of the City Video

Printer-friendly version

The 2014 State of the City took place on November 12, 2014 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Brisbane.  It's an annual event where the City Manager and Mayor tell the community about the finances of the City, as well as the exciting projects that took place over the past year and those that are planned for the near future.  Thank you to the generosity of South San Francisco Scavengers for hosting this year's event, which is annually planned by the Brisbane Chamber of Commerce.  Special thanks also to MCTV for videotaping the event.  Next year, we'll be sure to have a handheld mic for the period after the presentations so you can hear questions posed by community members.  With that, enjoy the video playback!
