Your Economic Development Ideas

Printer-friendly version

At the September 18th City Council meeting, the idea of having the Community submit their ideas regarding economic development via social media was discussed.  It was decided that there would be two platforms that citizens would be able to do so on - Uservoice and Facebook.  The Uservoice forum can be accessed by simply clicking the Uservoice button below or on the red feedback tab on website, and the Facebook forum can be accessed by clicking the Facebook button below or at the top of the City's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/brisbane94005).  The ideas will be culled together for the City Council's Economic Development Workshop, taking place on Monday, November 3rd.  Your ideas concerning Downtown Brisbane, Crocker Park and the Village, and Sierra Point are greatly welcomed.  On Uservoice, you will have 10 "votes" to use, with 3 being the maximum number of votes you can assign to any one idea.  If you would like to submit a photo that characterizes what you would like to see in town, please either submit that via the Facebook page or e-mail it to Caroline Cheung at ccheung@ci.brisbane.ca.us .  Thank you in advance for your participation and feedback!

National Preparedness Month

Printer-friendly version

September is National Preparedness Month (NPM), and the theme for this year is: "Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare".  There are also weekly themes, so each week we'll be sharing tips and information concerning the following on our Facebook and Twitter pages (be sure to Like and Follow us):

Week 1 - How to Reconnect with Family After a Disaster
Week 2 - How to Plan for Specific Needs Before a Disaster (youth and children, business, organizations, those with disabilities, pets, etc.)
Week 3 - How to Build An Emergency Kit
Week 4 & 5 - How to Practice for an Emergency

For more details about National Preparedness Month please visit: www.ready.gov/september or @Readygov on Twitter.  And if you haven't already signed up to receive text alerts during an emergency from the City, please do so today at SMCAlert.info.  The Director of Emergency Services, Randy Breault, will also be providing the City Council with a presentation about National Preparedness Month at the September 2, 2014 Council Meeting.  Last weekend's earthquake in Napa makes this all the more timely, as we clearly saw it is not a matter of "if", it is a matter of "when" a disaster will strike!

Help Paint the Fire Hydrants!

Printer-friendly version

In addition to Brisbane's lighted stars that grace San Bruno Mountain during the holidays, Brisbane has another acclaimed attraction - the painted fire hydrants that have greeted passer-bys on city streets since 1976.  Brisbane Women's Club members, Vicki Hobson, who recommended the idea, and Jeanne Berman-Hosking, who spearheaded the project, envisioned painting hydrants as historical figures to commemorate our nation's bicentennial.  There were some more whimisical designs, such as the Clown (pictured left), in addition to Uncle Sam and Martha Washington!

Please join the Parks and Recreation Department as we continue our tradition of painting Brisbane’s fire hydrants on Saturday, October 11th and Sunday, October 12th from 9am -12pm.  Check-in will be held at the Brisbane Community Park (11 Old County Rd., Brisbane) and the Brisbane Lions Club has generously donated all supplies in memory of Will Cornyn.  To review a list of hydrants and for more information regarding Fire Hydrant Painting & Restoration Weekend, please click here.  To register in advance, please email Parks & Recreation Commissioner Madison Davis at madisondavis@ci.brisbane.ca.us .

 

PG&E Scam

Printer-friendly version

On 9/19/2014 at approx. 3:30 pm, two subjects contacted a resident claiming to be PG&E workers.  The subjects told the resident that they needed to show the resident something outside her home that needed to be fixed.  While one of the subjects distracted the resident, the other subject went into the home and took miscellaneous jewelry from the victim’s bedroom.  When the victim saw that one of the subjects had entered her home she told them both to leave not knowing at the time she had been victimized.  The victim did not see if they arrived or left in a vehicle.  Further investigation revealed that suspects arrived in a white 90's model Cadillac.  These appear to be the same subjects that have committed similar crimes in Daly City.  We are working with Daly City Police to try to identify the suspects.
 
They are described as:
Suspect #1:
Sex- Male
Race- Hispanic
Age- Early 40s
Height- 6'2''
Weight- Average
Hair- Short black hair
Dark complexion
Clothing- Suede hat, khaki shorts, and light blue button up shirt
 
Suspect #2:
Sex- Male
Race- Hispanic
Age- Early 40s
Height- 6'1'' to 6'2"
Weight- Average
Hair- Dark hair
Dark complexion
Clothing- Blue windbreaker with yellow and red marks

Do not open your door to anyone you cannot identify and/or who states they are there to perform a service to your home that you have not ordered.
If you cannot identify who is there, please contact the Brisbane Police Department and we will respond immediately to check their identity and credentials. 

And remember, if you see anything suspicious in your neighborhood, phone the Brisbane Police Department immediately at 467-1212.

Two Arrests Made In Recent Thefts

Printer-friendly version

Over the past several months we have seen a spike in thefts from unlocked vehicles.  In these cases, misc. items of property left in the vehicle and loose change were taken. 

On Sept 11, 2014, a 20 year old male was contacted and arrested on drug charges while he was seen searching the neighborhoods for victim vehicles.  A second subject, a male juvenile, was contacted and arrested on September 15, 2014 for possession of stolen property and drug charges.  These suspects were not working together, but are believed to be responsible for a majority of these thefts.  These arrests were made during an undercover surveillance operation by the Brisbane Police Department targeting areas where recent thefts had occurred. 

As always, if anyone has any additional information related to these or any other crimes, please contact the Brisbane Police Department at 467-1212.

Caltrain's New Electric Trains

Printer-friendly version

Caltrain is asking the public to provide feedback and input on design details of its future fleet of Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) trains.  When the railway is electrified as part of the Caltrain Modernization Program, EMU trains will be procured to replace approximately 75 percent of the current diesel fleet and eventually EMUs will replace the entire fleet operating between San Francisco and San Jose. 

The rail agency is soliciting feedback from the public about how the new trains should be constructed to manage capacity on key issues such as seats/standees, bathrooms, and bikes on board. 

To provide feedback, please complete this new electric train survey: www.caltrain.com/emusurvey 

Feedback from the public will be coupled with staff technical analysis to help inform the purchase of the new trains, once the project has been approved and environmentally cleared. Environmental clearance is scheduled for the end of 2014. 

For more information about the program: website: www.caltrain.com/emu; email: caltrainemu@caltrain.com; phone: 650.508.6493; Caltrain Modernization Program: Video

Rate Increase for Garbage

Printer-friendly version

The last item on the City Council's agenda for Thursday, September 18 is the potential New Solid Waste Franchise Agreement with South San Francisco Scavengers Co. (SSFSC) for the collection and disposal of recyclable materials, organic materials or composting, and solid waste (click here for the staff report).  The City's current franchise agreement with SSF Scavengers expires on October 30, 2014.  Along with maintaining the current services provided by SSFSC, the new agreement will also incorporate several new services, such as:

  • Organic materials collection (composting), which would also help fuel several of their CNG (compressed natural gas) front end loaders (as seen above)
  • Increase in containers provided to the City at no cost for the annual Citywide Clean-Up
  • Abandoned waste clean-up collection for the City’s right-of-way areas
  • Implementation of a trash container management policy

There are also additional trash load reduction services which the City is required to comply per the Municipal Regional Stormwater Permit. 

That being said, a residential 32 gallon can would go from $24.36/mo. to $28.49/mo.  You can tune into the Council meeting at 7:30pm this coming Thursday on Ch. 27 or watch live via the City's Live Streaming page.

Facelifts Around Town

Printer-friendly version

UPDATE Monday, August 25, 11:22am - Both the Fire Station re-painting and the corner of Lake/Glen Park Way re-landscaping were completed late last week.  Here are the "after" photos!

* * * * *

There are a couple spots in town that will undergoing a facelift starting early next week!  The Public Works Building and Grounds Team has scheduled the prep work for painting Station 81 (pictured right) to begin on Tuesday, August 12th.  This was one of the Capital Improvement Projects that the Council approved with the 2014-15 city budget.  The plan is to pressure wash the building on Tuesday and let it dry for a day or two, depending on the weather.  It should take about 4 days to complete after that.  We'll post an "after" pic once the re-painting has been completed.

On Monday, August 11th, landscape improvements at the Lake St. Pump Station (pictured below) are scheduled to begin.  Most of the current plants and trees will be pruned back, with new drought-tolerant plants being added to provide better screening and an overall

better appearance of the Lake St. and Glen Park Way corner.  The contractor who will be performing the work, Loral Landscaping, met with the neighbors on Lake St. who got to review the landscaping plan and provide input.  An "after" pic will also be added once the landscaping work has been completed.

Leash Law Enforced

Printer-friendly version

At the January 13, 2014 City Council meeting, the Police Chief gave an overview of the City's Leash Law.  As a reminder, the Brisbane Police Department enforces leash law violations under the Brisbane Municipal Code, section 6.04.070 which states that no owner shall "allow an animal to be upon any public street, sidewalk, park, school ground, any public property, or upon any enclosed premises in this jurisdiction unless the animal is...under the control of the owner by...a substantial chain, lead rope, or leash, which chain, lead rope, or leash shall be continuously held by some competent person capable of controlling such animal."  Anyone violating this section of the City's Municipal Code will be issued a $100.00 administrative citation for the first offense, with much steeper fines for repeat offenses.  If you see anyone violating the City's Leash Law, please contact the Brisbane Police Department right away by calling (415) 467-1212 so that the officer can attempt to contain the dog, contact the owner, and when necessary, contact the Peninsula Humane Society for assistance.

West Nile Virus Update

Printer-friendly version

Update Friday, 8/22, 11:16am - At last night's Council meeting, a timely presentation on West Nile Virus was given by Theresa Shelton, a vector ecologist from San Mateo County Mosquito and Vector Control Distict (segment begins at 12:30).  She stressed the importance of reporting all dead birds and squirrels to the CA Dept. of Public Health West Nile Virus and Dead Bird Hotline by calling (877) 968-BIRD (2473) or online at www.westnile.ca.gov.

* * * * *

Through SMCAlert, the City became aware today about a pool of mosquitoes and a dead bird found at Clay Park in South San Francisco.  Both the pool of mosquitoes and bird tested positive for the West Nile Virus.

San Mateo County Mosquito & Vector Control is planning to fog a ½ mile radius surrounding the location where the mosquito pool and bird were found.  Areas surrounding Clay Park in South San Francisco, Colma, and Daly City are included in the fogging treatment plan.

The fogging will take place between the hours of 9:00 PM to 5:00 AM beginning Thursday (8/21) evening into Friday (8/22) morning.

Residents with questions can call the District at (650) 344-8592 Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM.

To prevent mosquito bites and breeding, the San Mateo County Mosquito Abatement District reminds the public to remember the “Three Ds” drain standing water because that is where mosquitoes lay eggs; wear proper clothing and repellent during dawn and dusk when mosquitoes bite; and apply insect repellent containing DEET, picaradin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR3535.

If you or someone you know are experiencing symptoms of the West Nile Virus (fever, headache, fatigue, sometimes a skin rash, swollen lymph glands and eye pain), please contact your local physician and schedule to get tested for the virus immediately.

Jess C. Salmon 1925 - 2014

Printer-friendly version

Early this morning, Brisbane lost its last surviving Founding Father.  Jess C. Salmon was one of Brisbane's five original City Council Members elected on September 12, 1961 to serve the community.  The City became a General Law City soon after on November 27, 1961.  Brisbane would not be the community it is today with its small-town feel had it not been for people like Jess who fought hard to protect the City's natural resources, while also ensuring its fiscal health.  This is evident in the documentary, "No Deposit, No Return" (1965), that was produced by KRON-TV when Jess served as the City's Mayor.  In February 2013, when the Open Space & Ecology Committee aired the short film for the community, Jess was right there seated in the front row.  In the film, Jess' love for Brisbane and San Bruno Mountain which encircles it, are clearly seen.  Similar sentiments were expressed by current Council Member and former Mayor Ray Miller and his wife Anya, former Council Member and Mayor.

"I was greatly saddened by the news that Jess Salmon, the last surviving member of Brisbane's first City Council, had died.  My wife and I have known Jess since the 1960s.  He was truly a founding father.  Because of his intelligence, diligence, organizational smarts and incredible dedication, he was probably the most influential architect of the basic structure, laws, and community orientation of Brisbane's city government.  He fought strenuously to generate the revenue that Brisbane needed to survive, to protect it from the encroachments of the County and avaricious developers, and to preserve our special community and the natural mountain environment with which Brisbane is blessed.  Everyone who has enjoyed living in Brisbane owes Jess Salmon a big debt of gratitude."
 

Jess C. Salmon
1925 - 2014
Beloved Founding Father

 

A Memorial service is planned for Saturday, August 16th at 10:30am at Mission Blue Center (475 Mission Blue Drive, Brisbane).
