Council Budget Process

Printer-friendly version

Every June, the Council adopts a budget that will guide the following fiscal year’s activities.  This is probably one of the most paramount motions the Council takes each year, as the budget provides an annual financial plan for what will be accomplished in the upcoming fiscal year (in this year’s case, July 1, 2016 – June 30, 2017). 

But, if you’ve ever watched a Council budget hearing, which usually start in early June, you’ll know that the budget wasn’t the result of work completed in just the prior month.  It takes MONTHS to ensure the budget is pulled together in a clear and meaningful fashion for the community.  The 2016-17 budget process will start in January, with the Council’s Retreat/Workshop.  This is a meeting that is always open to the public and where the Council will talk over what their priorities will be going forward in fiscal year 2016-17. 

This Workshop will help to inform the overall budget process, which includes the City Manager and Finance staff meeting with the rest of the City’s departments to prepare the budget.  In May, the City Manager and Finance staff work especially close with the Council Subcommittee to develop the presentation of the budget to the community.  Budget hearings kick off in June, and begin with the City Manager presenting the recommended budget to the Council and community.  The budget is usually adopted in late June.

If you’d like to take a look at the most current Budget-in-Brief (2015-16), then you can find copies of the tri-fold brochure at City Hall and the Library.  It can also be viewed on the City’s website here.  This 2-page document provides a basic overview of the City’s revenues and expenditures as related to the General Fund, the fund which finances most of the City’s services such as Police/Fire Safety.  Once again, stay tuned for budget hearings kicking off in June!  Or, if you’re curious to get involved earlier, send an e-mail to Administrative Services Director Stuart Schillinger at schillinger@ci.brisbane.ca.us.

Brisbane Baylands

Printer-friendly version

We would like to thank the Planning Commission for their efforts in the Baylands planning process.  Over the fall/early winter, they held 10 public hearings cumulatively exceeding 34 hours, and heard from over 100 speakers.  In January, the Planning Commission will start deliberating on what recommendation they will make to the City Council regarding the Baylands.  These deliberations will be open to the public and are tentatively scheduled for the Commission’s regularly scheduled meetings, which fall on second and fourth Thursdays of every month and start at 7:30 pm.  This schedule is subject to change.  For the most current scheduling information, please refer to the Baylands Schedule of Hearings page.

Climate Fact #1

Printer-friendly version

Climate facts are created by Glenn Fieldman, member of the Open Space and Ecology Committee.  These facts are to call community awareness to global warming impacts as a measure of the City's Climate Action Plan.

The U.S Energy Information Administration website has more information about burning of gasoline here and formation of Carbon dioxide here.

Skatepark Update

At their December 17th meeting, the City Council voted to approve the final design of the new Brisbane Skatepark and authorized staff to put the plans and specifications out to bid.  This brings us one step closer to there being an updated, entirely concrete surfaced skatepark in town for Brisbane’s youth to enjoy for decades to come.

The community to date has raised over $34,000.  This is through the sale of bricks (thank you for your energy and hard work to that end, Jennifer Bousquet!), past Downtown Brisbane Car Shows (thank you for your organization, Tony Lukezic!), and the sale of Brisbane Skatepark t-shirts (thank you Michael Barnes and your team of skatepark advocates!).  Thank you also to DeeDee Porter for contacting contractors and initiating in-kind donations (this resulted in approximately $40,000 in committed in-kind donations!).  Brisbane business owner Tony Verreos is spearheading one last push to ensure that all businesses that want to be a part of helping make this project a reality are included.  Note: If you’re not a business owner but would like to still make a tax-deductible donation, please contact Caroline Cheung at City Hall at ccheung@ci.brisbane.ca.us or (415) 508-2157.

Stay informed on Skatepark updates here via the City's website, the City's Facebook page, and the Facebook group, Brisbane SkateparkAnd, of course, the progress will continue to be documented in the monthly City STAR publication as the project moves forward.

Fly Safe with your Drone

Did you know that if you fly a drone anywhere in the nation’s airspace, you automatically become part of the U.S. aviation system?  Under the law, your drone is an aircraft.  So, while the rules for drones may be different, you have the responsibility to operate safely, just as a Cessna or 747 pilot does.  The FAA has developed this safety checklist (PDF) that you, as a pilot, should use whenever you send a drone into the sky.  We want you to fly safe, fly smart – and have fun.

Council Reorg Meeting Recap

Printer-friendly version

Last night, the Council Chambers was filled to the brim with community members as we honored Councilmember Miller for his 16 years of service on the Council and over 32 years of public service to the Brisbane community.  Click here to view his Proclamation, which provides a comprehensive overview of how he served the community over the years.

He was awarded resolutions from San Mateo County Supervisor Adrienne Tissier, Congresswoman Jackie Speier, State Senator Jerry Hill, and Assemblymember Kevin Mullin...all of them thanking him for the wisdom, leadership, and balance he brought to every committee or commission he served on within the County.

Council then adopted Resolution 2015-44, adopting the County's Certification of Votes from the November 3rd General Municipal Election to fill two Council seats.  Newly-elected Councilmember Madison Davis and re-elected Councilmember Terry O'Connell were elected to serve on the City Council through December 2019.  The two were then sworn in together by Senator Hill. 

The Council then elected to appoint Mayor Pro Tem Cliff Lentz as Mayor and Councilmember Lori Liu as Mayor Pro Tem, both of whom were officially sworn in to their new positions by Senator Hill.

Former Mayor Terry O'Connell was then recognized by Mayor Lentz for her service to the Brisbane community during the previous year.  The Council then heard from newest (and youngest ever) Councilmember, Madison Davis, who expressed her excitement to be able to learn from and serve alongside her fellow Councilmembers.

We thank all of those who came to this special Council Reorganization Meeting, who also went home with the City's newest history book!

CRV Recycling Program Ending 12/31

Printer-friendly version

A note from Dan Sorrentino, Brisbane School Recycling Program Manager and 2013 Volunteer of the Year:

The CRV School Recycling Program will end December 31, 2015 but the Lipman E-Waste Program is still going strong!

I want to thank everyone who has helped with the Brisbane CRV recycling program for the last FIVE YEARS.  Because of your efforts, we have donated over $40,000 to the Brisbane School District.  The recycling program is closing on December 31, 2015.  The Brisbane Hardware Store will no longer be a collection bin site.  If you know of some other worthy cause, then perhaps you could donate your CRV to them.  Or, put your recycling in your own household blue bin that the S. San Francisco Scavengers has provided.  If you have any questions please call me, my number is listed below.

However, the Lipman E-waste program is still going strong.  In 2015, the E-Waste Fundraiser is looking to exceed 30,000 pounds! 

The Lipman E-waste Collection Fundraiser was started in 2011 by former Lipman Librarian Sally Busalacchi.  In its inaugural year, this effort collected over 4,000 pounds of E-waste, which Zarc Recycling in Brisbane paid $400.00 to Lipman.  In 2014, the E-waste collection had grown to over 21,000 pounds and in 2015 is on track to exceed 30,000 pounds, which will generate about $3,000.00 for Lipman School.  This money can then be used to buy NEW computers for student use.  Please call me at the number below for questions or pick-up if you cannot deliver your E-waste (like large TVs) to Lipman on the annual collection day.

Please bring your E-waste to Lipman School (1 Solano St.) on January 23, 2016.

Thank you,

Brisbane School Recycling Program Manager

Parent Engagement Meeting

Printer-friendly version

Over a month ago, as a means to follow up with the Parent Survey that was distributed to those whose children are enrolled in the City's KinderCare and ClubRec afterschool programs at BES, a Parent Engagement Meeting was scheduled for Wednesday, December 16th at 5:30pm at City Hall in the Community Meeting Room.  This meeting is open to the public, but will specifically touch on the results of the parent survey, with Parks and Recreation staff facilitating a collaborative discussion around the future of the KinderCare and ClubRec programs, with the goal being to provide the families who utilize these programs the best offerings possible.  In order for parents to attend this evening meeting, staff will be providing extended childcare at ClubRec until 7pm that evening.  In the event you are unable to make the meeting, staff will be sharing the outcomes and will provide an opportunity for you to chime in at a later time.  The meeting results will also be discussed at the next Parks and Recreation Commission meeting of January 13, 2015.  Thank you for those who have already taken the time to complete the survey; we look forward to continuing the conversation with you on the 16th!

Holiday Donations at City Hall

Smoking Ordinance

Printer-friendly version

UPDATE: Wednesday, 12/9 - The Council last night voted to adopt Ordinance 602 enacting the following motions.

UPDATE: Friday, 12/4 - At last night’s City Council meeting, the Council approved two motions:

First, they unanimously voted to adopt Ordinance 602 as written with the following amendments:

  1. Updating a bullet point in one of the Whereas statements (p.4)  to, “The United States Fire Administration recommends that if people smoke, that they smoke outdoors;”
  2. Changing “At all public transit stops” to “At all public transit shelters” in Section 8.45.040 – Areas where smoking is prohibited
  3. Removing Chapter 8.46, which takes out all restrictions on smoking in multi-unit residences, but leaving all restrictions on smoking in public places and on certain types of distribution and sale of tobacco products, and all provisions extending the City’s existing tobacco retailer license provisions to e-cigarette retailers.

Second, the Council unanimously moved that it is the Council’s intent to adopt an ordinance regulating smoking in multi-unit residences within the next year (2016).  Before that happens, there will be extensive education outreach on the nature of the ordinance and the justification for it, and a full opportunity for feedback from all impacted homeowner associations and landlords.  Stay tuned!  Click here to read the full staff report from the Deputy City Attorney for the City Council meeting of 12/8.

UPDATE: Friday, 11/20 - The Council last night set 12/3 as the date they will meet to discuss the ordinance in more detail.  The agenda will be made available 72 hrs. prior on the All Meetings page.

UPDATE: Friday, 11/13 - The Subcommittee met today and will be meeting again on Wednesday, 11/18.  They will discuss with the full Council at their 11/19 meeting the possibility of having a special meeting on 12/3 to discuss the ordinance in more detail.

UPDATE: Friday, 11/6 - The City Council last night decided to refer Ordinance No. 602 back to the Health & Safety Subcommittee for further review.

* * * * *

The City Council will consider introduction of Ordinance No. 602, restricting or limiting the use of tobacco products and/or e-cigarettes in various public places, businesses patronized by the public and in common areas and individual units of multi-unit dwellings and (2) ban the sale of tobacco products and/or e-cigarettes sales when such products are not in the manufacturer’s original packaging or are sold from vending machines or self-service displays.

This item was discussed at the City Council meeting of October 15 and was continued to November 5th.  Council will consider new regulations to ban the smoking of tobacco and other products in public places, common areas and individual units of multi-unit residences.  This ban would apply to the use of e-cigarettes and the smoking or vaporizing of medical marijuana.

The meeting will be held on Thursday, November 5, 2015 at 7:30 p.m. at City Hall, 50 Park Place.  Click here to view the staff report on this issue.

Bike & Ped Advisory Committee

Printer-friendly version

The City/County Association of Governments (C/CAG) of San Mateo County currently has four vacant seats for public members on the Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee (BPAC).  The BPAC provides advice and recommendations to the C/CAG Board of Directors on all matters relating to bicycle and pedestrian facilities planning and on the selection of projects for state and federal funding.

Applicants must be a resident of San Mateo County. The appointment term is for two years.  The C/CAG Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee generally meets on the fourth Thursday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at San Mateo City Hall.  The BPAC has approximately six meetings per year.

The BPAC only allows for two members, either elected or public, that reside in any particular jurisdiction (City or Unincorporated San Mateo County).  There are currently two members that reside in the City of San Bruno and in Unincorporated San Mateo County.  As a result, no new members from either San Bruno or Unincorporated San Mateo County can be appointed at this time.

Interested parties should complete the BPAC Membership Application and return it to Tom Madalena at tmadalena@smcgov.org by January 15, 2016.

Undergrounding Sewer Line

Printer-friendly version

Beginning November 16th, the City's contractor will be starting work on undergrounding the 8" sanitary sewer force main on Bayshore Blvd.  The work zone, as shown in the map below, will be in-between Guadalupe Canyon Pkwy and Valley Drive.  This project is expected to last through mid-December.


Click to enlarge
 

Proper undergrounding and enhanced relocation of this sewer line will allow for better protection of this facility for the future.  Work hours for this project will take place from 9am - 4pm.  To be mindful of the cycling community, a bike lane detour from Guadalupe Canyon Pkwy > North Hill > Valley will be established.  There will be periodic shutdowns of the right-hand lane going southbound on Bayshore.  Please drive and carefully through the work area.  This is one of four Capital Improvement Projects which are being funded through the new Capital Projects Charge approved by the Council on November 20, 2014.  If you have any questions about this project, please call the Public Works Dept. at (415) 508-2130.

Winter Clean Up 11/14-15

Printer-friendly version

UPDATE: Friday, 11/20 - Thank you to all who participated in last weekend's Winter Clean Up.  SSF Scavengers picked up 34 loads, equivalent to 13 tons of green waste!

The Annual Winter Clean Up is November 14 & 15.  Please take advantage of the large dumpters provided by SSF Scavengers that will be placed throughout town for residents to dispose of their yard waste.  Click here to view the locations of the dumpsters.  Please place your yard trimmings and branches (less than 4" in diameter), and NOT within plastic bags, into the nearest-located dumpster.  SSF Scavengers will be coming to empty the dumpsters throughout the weekend to prevent them from becoming over-filled.  If you need assistance, the City will have limited staff available to transport your yard waste to one of the dumpsters. 

Please call (415) 508-2146 during the following times only:

  • Saturday, November 14, 10am - 3pm
  • Sunday, November 15, 9am - 1pm

Remember, Winter Clean Up is for YARD WASTE ONLY (leaves, branches, grass).  NO GARBAGE OR OTHER WASTE is to be disposed of in these dumpsters.  Doing so will make the entire load unrecyclable.  Thank you in advance for your willingness and cooperation in this City-wide effort!

Did you know the City has an Adopt-A-Drain program, allowing residents to "adopt" the storms drain(s) nearest their homes and help keep it clear of leaves and debris.  The rainfall we had earlier this week served as a good reminder that the storm drains need to be clear of trash and leaves.  A clean storm drain prevents flooding, improves traffic flow, and maintains pedestrian access, especially for children, those with disabilities, and the elderly.  If you are interested in "officially" adopting the storm drains nearest your home, please click here for more information.  It would also be a fun activity to do with your kids while at the same time teaching them how we can each play a part in the safety and beauty of our city.

Veterans Remembrance Event

Attendees at this morning's special Veterans' Remembrance Event at the flagpole outside City Hall were greeted with sunshine and warmth as we honored all those who served our country in the armed forces.  We were especially honored to have with us in attendance Charles "Chuck" Blunt (age 93) and wife Helen, as well as Roy Peters (age 98).  Both men served in WWII and have stories and were full of stories, laughter and advice!  Councilmember Conway led attendees through a remembrance ceremony, which included the raising of the flag.  See more photos of today's special event here.
