Council Adopts Smoking Ordinance

Printer-friendly version

On November 3rd, the Brisbane City Council voted to adopt Ordinance No. 611, which prohibits smoking of tobacco products, including electronic cigarettes, in multi-unit residences.  This pertains to the enclosed and unenclosed common areas of a multi-unit residence, unless it is a designated smoking area.  Brisbane will join about 20 other cities or county unincorporated areas in Northern California requiring multi-unit housing to be smoke-free.  Note: This ordinance does not apply to those with a medical marijuana card.  Enforcement will be deferred six months, or until the first part of June, in order for property owners and tenants to become aware of the new regulations and take any necessary measures to comply with the ordinance.  If there are complaints, they should be directed to the City's Code Enforcement Officer at (415) 508-2172.  The Code Enforcement Officer will work with the County in educating the offender before enforcing the ordinance.

Flag-Raising Event Honoring Veterans

Printer-friendly version

It was a beautiful morning to honor those who selflessly served in the armed forces and risked their lives for the freedom we enjoy today.  Thank you to all who attended the City's Annual Flag-Raising Event!  Next year, we hope to see even more Veterans out at the Community Park that live in this beautiful City of Stars. 

Special thanks to Jeri Sulley and Kathy Wall who led everyone in singing the Star Spangled Banner, the Brisbane Police Department for escorting our oldest Veteran, Charles E. (Chuck) Blunt and his wife, Helen, to the event -- Chuck served as a Sergeant in World War II and has 2 Purple Hearts, and the Brisbane Public Works Dept. and Parks and Recreation Dept. for their assistance with today's ceremony.  It was also great to see so many in Public Safety at the event - we are truly grateful for all those that wear the badge and protect the lives and welfare of Brisbane and its citizens!
