Beware! Burglary Scam

Printer-friendly version

Dear Brisbane Residents,

Last week, there were two cases of thieves dressing up as utility workers to gain access to Bay Area homes.  I wanted to take the opportunity to write to you this week with information regarding the burglaries in Oakland and San Carlos in an effort to share information and awareness.

In each case, a person dressed as a utility worker gained access to the customer’s backyard, while a second person entered the home and stole money, coins and/or jewelry.  Thankfully, nobody was injured in either case.  Investigations are ongoing, and PG&E is working in full cooperation with local law enforcement.  In addition to reaching out to you, PG&E is reaching out to local media to educate our customers.

Here is some important information you should know: 

  • PG&E customers should always ask to see valid identification before allowing anyone claiming to be a PG&E representative inside their home.  PG&E employees always carry their identification and are always willing to show it to you. 
  • If a person claiming to be a PG&E employee has identification and someone still feels uncomfortable, they should call PG&E’s customer service line at 1-800-PGE-5000 to verify an appointment and/or PG&E’s presence in the community.
  • Customers who have an appointment with PG&E will receive an automated call back within 48 hours prior to a scheduled visit, or they will receive a personal call from a PG&E gas service representative prior to a scheduled visit. 
  • Finally, customers with concerns about the legitimacy of a call they receive about a past due bill, a service request or a request for personal information are encouraged to call PG&E at 1-800-PGE-5000.

I hope this information is helpful to you.  If you have any questions about this or any other suspicious PG&E-related issues, please do not hesitate to contact the Brisbane Police Department at 415-467-1212.

Sidewalk Trip Hazards Repair

Printer-friendly version

The City of Brisbane’s contractor, F. Ferrando & Co.is repairing numerous sidewalk trip hazards as of Monday, August 26.  Work is anticipated to be completed at around the end of October.  Trip hazards are uneven sections of the sidewalk that have enough of a difference in elevation, primarily due to tree root growth, to cause an unsafe condition for pedestrians.  These trip hazards are located in town, in Crocker Industrial Park, and at the Ridge, and repairs to all trip hazards will take about two months.  “No parking” signs will be posted 72 hours in advance of the work in each specific area that is being repaired.  Pedestrians will be accomodated during the construction.

 

We apologize in advance for the inconvenience, and we appreciate your patience while this work is being done.  If you have any concerns or questions, please call the Public Works Department at (415) 508-2130.

New Hours at Brisbane Library!

Brisbane Library Hours of Operation Announcement

 

San Mateo County Library is pleased to announce new operating hours for the Brisbane Library.

Input from the community has been a critical part of the decision making process and we thank everyone who participated in providing feedback.  In reviewing the results of the May 2013 Brisbane Library Open Hours Community Survey, 69% of survey respondents indicated they would use the library more if the library were open different hours and 70% of survey respondents preferred that the changed hours include additional morning weekday and weekend hours.

After assessing the May 2013 Brisbane Library Open Hours Community Survey, collecting and reviewing current Brisbane library usage patterns, and analyzing open hours of neighboring libraries, we have been able to approve  updated library open hours.

New Hours for the Brisbane Library

Monday—Wednesday 10am-7pm

Thursday—Friday 12pm-5pm

Saturday 11am-5pm

The new hours will go into effect after the Labor Day Holiday on Tuesday, 3 September 2013 and include 7 new hours of morning service. We look forward to welcoming even more of the community, more frequently, in September.  Please contact Carine Risley, Brisbane Library Manager, for additional information.  risley@smcl.org or 415.467.2060

Highway 101 On-Ramp Meters

Printer-friendly version

Beginning later this year, Caltrans will activate the signals currently being installed at the on-ramps to Highway 101 between Highway 92 in San Mateo and the San Francisco city limit, including four locations in Brisbane.  Ramp metering will be activated at the Harney Avenue and Sierra Point Parkway northbound on-ramps and the Beatty Avenue and Sierra Point Parkway/Lagoon Road southbound on-ramps.  The ramp metering will operate on weekdays during morning and evening commute hours.  The signals will start operating in late 2013.  Specific information, including the date of the ramp metering turn-on and the scheduled hours of operation will be provided before the actual start up.  Caltrans will also provide contact information for concerns and questions from the public during the fine-tuning process, once the system is turned on.

Ramp metering is necessary to evenly distribute the flow of traffic onto the highway.  It will be used to handle the large volume of cars that enter Highway 101 every day and aims to prevent backups and heavy traffic.
