Adopt-A-Drain Program

Printer-friendly version

Can 1 person help the city during these storms? 

Of course!  With nearly 500 catch basins to keep clean, city crews are stretched pretty thin during the first few rains storms that include heavy rains.  Keeping the inlet of the catch basin in the street near your house will keep the water moving and help prevent flooding.

60 seconds of work later!

There's no need to dispose of the debris, just move it to the sidewalk or street and DPW will pick it up as soon as they can.

If you are interested in "officially" adopting the storm drains nearest your home, please click here for more information.

Sand Bags Available

One can never be too prepared!  Sand bags are now available atop two palettes outside the gate of the Public Works Corp Yard, located at the intersection of Tunnel Ave. and Lagoon Rd.  Each sand bag weighs approximately 15 lbs. and are free for the taking.  So please stop by and pick up the amount you need...more will be made by the Public Works crew as necessary to ensure the community has what it needs to guard against flooding during the rainy season.  And, the below pics illustrate how Dolan, Joe, and Keegan from the PW crew got sand bag-making down to a simple, easy process -- with the help of some safety cones acting as pastry bags.  Now, that's creative.  Good work, guys!


Donny McClymond

We at the City of Brisbane are deeply saddened over the loss of one of our hard-working Public Works crew members over the Thanksgiving Holiday.  Donny passed away unexpectedly on Thanksgiving Day, having put in over 25 years of service to the City on the Operations and Maintenance Team, and recently serving as Public Works Team Leader.

He obviously leaves us entirely too early, at the young age of 53.  Flags at the Public Works Corporation Yard, City Hall, and Fire Station will be flown at half-mast until his funeral.  Information on services and arrangements will be posted as soon as they are made known to us.

Donny, your kind spirit, hearty laugh, and regularly-spoken parting sentiment, "Enjoy your day", are already missed so much.  We will never forget you.

Community Park Playground

Printer-friendly version

What a productive Build Day!  Most of the new 5 - 12 structure was assembled with the help of volunteers, along with 4 out of the 6 swings.  Thank you to volunteers Sue Cochran, Mayor Cliff Lentz, Ernie Filippo, Paul Gallant, Tony Kim, Nancy Lacsamana, Tony Palmer, Dave Primmer, Dan Sorrentino, and Tony Verreos.  They were great at assisting the Playgrounds Unlimited crew, who were impressed with the hardworking, get-'er-done attitude the volunteers displayed.

The net that separates the two towers on the 5 - 12 structure is heavier than it looks!

Many hands make light work!

The Mothers of Brisbane of course were present on Build Day, helping provide snacks and beverages to the volunteers.  Thank you, Megan Garner, Elisa Primm, Danielle Hope, and Ana Maria Hernandez!  And also, Ron Davis of Ron Davis Real Estate and Madhouse Coffee for supplying the coffee!).  MOBsters Jessica Aloft and Jennifer Bousquest were great cheerleaders in their MOB t-shirts!

To see the rest of the pictures from Wednesday's Build Day, please click here to be taken to the photo set on Flickr.

This is how the playstructure looked as of Thursday afternoon.  The spiral slide was attached along with its panels and rooftop.  Due to the rain, the Playgrounds Unlimited crew did not return today, but will next week to install the 2 - 5 structure.  After the Thanksgiving holiday, they will start to lay the base mat for the rubber surfacing, and pour the rubber, which will take about a week to completely cure.

The playground is scheduled to be opened to the Community on Sunday, December 2nd, the same day as the Festival of Lights.  More information on the ribbon-cutting ceremony will be forthcoming.

In the meantime, if you haven't yet reserved a star, which will all be placed along both sides of the 72' cement seatwall near the swings, this is your last chance!  Click here for the order form.  Just fill it out and come down to the Finance Counter at City Hall with $100 payment (cash or check accepted).  We'll be sending in the order to the engraving company on Wednesday, November 21st.  Hurry, because as of this posting, there were only 21 stars remaining!

SamTrans Route 292

Printer-friendly version

Several concerned citizens and SamTrans riders came before the Council on Monday to request the Council stay on top of SamTrans when it came to their proposed new service plan, where they've held several public workshops to gain rider feedback.  The issue is SamTrans proposes to run Route 292 buses in and out of San Francisco only on weekdays and only during peak commute hours. Peak commute hours are described as between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. and then between 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. from Monday thru Friday only. SamTrans proposes to stop running the 292 buses in and out of San Francisco between 9:00 am and 3:00pm from Monday to Friday. And, no Route 292 service in and out of San Francisco during weekends and public holidays.

The deadline to submit comments regarding the new proposed service plan is November 21, 2012.  A SamTrans Board of Directors meeting is being held on Wednesday, November 14th at 2:00pm in the Edward J. Bacciocco Auditorium located on the second floor at SamTrans Administrative Offices, 1250 San Carlos Ave., San Carlos. The office is located two blocks west of the San Carlos Caltrain Station. If you cannot make the meeting, please reach out to the Board Members by sending them an e-mail:
