National Public Works Week

Printer-friendly version

"Because of Public Works..." is this year's theme for National Public Works Week.  The American Public Works Association selected it because it is about the quality of life brought to communities around the world.  We are able to have clean water, safe streets and neighborhoods, efficient traffic, and safe clean communities "Because of Public Works..."

This past Monday, the City Council recognized the Public Works Department for their outstanding service to the community, which oftentimes goes unnoticed (a telling sign they're doing a great job!).  All but four members of the Public Works Dept. were present, where the Council and Randy Breault, Director of Public Works, commended the team for the services performed for this community and maintaining the city's fundamental infrastructure.

Utility Team Leader Keegan Black and Non-Utility Interim Team Leader Joe Friars proudly accepted the signed Proclamation from Mayor Miller.

Don't wait until May 19 - 25 to say Thank You for the excellent service you're receiving from the Public Works Dept...take a moment to thank them today!

Brisbane named a Playful City

Printer-friendly version

For its second year in a row, Brisbane has been named a Playful City USA Community by national non-profit KaBOOM!, a national non-profit dedicated to saving play for America's children.  Click here to KaBOOM! CEO and Founder Darell Hammond's congratulatory letter to Mayor Miller.

After receiving its recognition as a Playful City USA Community in 2012, the city applied for a $20,000 Construction Grant from KaBOOM! and was chosen as one of its 25 award recipients!  This $20,000 of course went towards the equipment purchase for the new Community Park Playground, which had its official ribbon-cutting on December 15, 2012.

From the press release KaBOOM! released today:

"KaBOOM! selected Brisbane as a Playful City USA Community for its outstanding dedication to play.  Brisbane's Let's Play Construction Grant helped forge a relationship with the city and the Mothers of Brisbane organization, which has been a driving force for the importance of play within the community.  As a result of this partnership, the Mothers of Brisbane fundraised $33,400 and the Lions Club dismantled the old play structure, both helping build a new park for the city.  The city is looking to expand partnerships with community organizations to increase access to play for citizens of Brisbane."

Printer-friendly version

UPDATE 5/10/13: Bike to Work Day 2013 was another roaring success, thanks to hardworking volunteers: Susan and Robert Maynard Sullivan, Open Space & Ecology Committee Member Barbara Ebel, Dee Sano, Nancy Lacasama, Pete Anastole, and Alison Wilson.  At the Tunnel Ave/Lagoon Energizer Station, they helped 384 cyclists to light refreshments and BTWD swag, along with a coupon to be redeemed at the farmers' market later that day, and cheered on 402 ride-bys.  The Bayshore/Old County Energizer Station had 30 stops and 78 ride-bys.  A highlight of the morning was a surprise visit from SF Bull's mascot, Rawhide!  For more pictures, please click here to see photos snapped by Brisbane resident Dee Sano throughout the morning.

On Thursday, May 9th, Bayshore and Tunnel Ave/Lagoon will be filled with cyclists participating in Bike to Work Day.  Last year, the Energizer Station at Bayshore and Old County had 50 ride-bys and 58 stops, and the Energizer Station at Lagoon and Tunnel had 260 ride-bys and 307 stops!  Bicyclists who stop by these stations can receive a free re-usable Bike to Work Day bag full of bike related materials, and fuel up for the rest of their ride.  This year, Moola Dollars for the Brisbane Farmers' Market (taking place later that day) will also be handed out.  Thank you to Brisbane resident Susan Maynard Sullivan for spearheading the volunteer effort that's necessary to make Bike to Work Day run as smoothly as it does.  For more information about Bike to Work Day, please click here.
