Tobacco Companies: Keep your butts out of our Bay!

Cigarettes are not just a human health concern. Cigarette butts are toxic, plastic litter that flows from our streets into the Bay, polluting water and threatening wildlife. An estimated 3 billion cigarettes are littered in the Bay Area each year, posing a serious threat that we cannot ignore.

Go to http://www.savesfbay.org/buttfreebay and sign the petition to tell tobacco companies “Keep your butts out of our Bay!”

The provided web link is a service of Save the Bay, a regional organization that includes protecting San Francisco Bay from pollution as one of its core missions.

October Council Meetings

Printer-friendly version

The City Council will be meeting on Monday, October 7th and Monday, October 21st at 7:30 p.m. in the Brisbane Community Room.

There were typographical errors in the recent issue of the Brisbane City News stating they would be for Budget Hearings.  The Budget was adopted in June and therefore that was a misprint. 

The October meetings will be for regular City business. 

If you see a Coyote in Brisbane

Printer-friendly version

The city occasionally receives reports of coyotes seen on or near city streets, and along outlying areas such as Tunnel Avenue.  The brochure "Living with California Coyotes" published by the California Department of Fish & Game provides insight on dealing with our wild neighbors. 

As always, if you believe the presence of any animal is causing an immediate threat to public safety, dial 911.  For less urgent concerns, please call Brisbane Police Dispatch at (415) 467-1212.
