BES Modular Update

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
06/21/2018 - 5:00pm

UPDATE: Thursday, 6/28 - The secondary childcare modular has arrived (delivery needed to be pushed to Thursday at 7:00am, and thus a time-laspe video wasn't able to be made--sorry!). Williams Scotsman delivered the unit this morning and will be spending the next couple of days conducting assembly and setting the modular into place.  Once situated, the remaining site work will be completed prior to occupancy in August.  This secondary unit has allowed the Parks and Recreation Dept. to expand enrollment for the ClubRec afterschool program to better meet the needs of the community.  Thank you to the Brisbane School District for working with us to make this possible and thank you to our dedicated Public Works team for managing the logistics! 

See more photos from today on the Brisbane Parks and Recreation Facebook page.

UPDATE: Friday, 6/22 -

The temporary childcare modular is scheduled to be delivered on Tuesday morning starting at 9:00am.  Stay tuned for a time-lapse video showing it being set into place!

What's happening at BES you ask?  The Public Works team is working with a contractor and PG&E to perform the site preparation work needed for the incoming modular.  The City is renting a secondary modular unit in the coming school year to allow for expansion of the afterschool program based on demand.  See the photos below for work that took place earlier this week:

PG&E installed a temporary power pole to provide electrical access to the rental modular unit.

The storage shed needed to be moved to allow delivery of the rental modular unit.  Above, crews are paving over the spot where the storage shed was previously located.

All patched up and looking good!

More progress pictures to come as the project moves through its various stages!

At last night's City Council Meeting, Chief Lisa Macias introduced new Brisbane Police Sergeant Cecilia Garay, who started in her new role with Brisbane in May.  Cecilia graduated from Jefferson High School and then joined the United States Army Reserves where she served for 6 years.  She completed her studies at Notre Dame University where she graduated magna cum laude with a B.S. in Human Services and a double major in Public Administration and Counseling.  After her service in the military, Cecilia began her law enforcement career with the Broadmoor Police Department as a Police Cadet/Explorer, and then as a Police Reserve Officer.  She later accepted a job as a police office for the Colma Police Dept., taking on responsibilities of Field Training Officer, Detective, Acting Sergeant, Community Service Coordinator, and Public Information Officer.  In 2012, she joined the Daly City Police Department as a Patrol Officer, Field Training Officer, Acting Sergeant, and served two terms as a Detective.  Cecilia comes to the Brisbane Police Department with over 20 years of law enforcement experience and we are lucky to have her on-board!

Wildfire Season is Upon Us

06/07/2018 - 5:00pm

With the warm weather and winds, grasses are drying out and can pose a fire hazard.  All residents should inspect their property and cut and remove all dry grasses and dead/dry vegetation from their property.  Notices of this were mailed to all properties advising residents to have this completed no later than Sunday, June 3rd.  Our firefighters, along with Fire Prevention staff from North County Fire Authority, drove through all streets in Brisbane this week (both commercial and residential) and noted any properties that appeared not to be in compliance.  Notices will be sent out next week to all properties that were deemed not in compliance.  Note: All property owners are responsible to abate dead plants, grass and weeds located on their property.  Should a property owner fail to correct an issue the Fire Department deems unsafe, a lien may be placed on the property by the City to recover all of the cost to abate the violations.

Fire Prevention staff also want to remind residents that they should inspect their roofs and gutters and remove pine needles, dry leaves, and debris from them.  It has been found that wind-driven embers crated by burning grasses, shrubs, and trees are one of the largest causes of homes being lost to fire; that dried out debris on your roof is fuel for a fire.  It is widely recommended to install 1/8" to 1/4" metal mesh to protect your attic spaces from ember intrusion.  For more information on creating a proper defensible space and legal requirements, please visit www.readyforwildfire.org.
