If you have an extra room to rent in your home, have you ever considered HIP Housing's Home Sharing Program?  You may be eligible to receive a $250 incentive if matched with someone from their program 90 days after the housemate moves in!  It's a good time to put that empty room to good use, earn regular monthly income and an extra $250!

Home Efficiency Project Planned?

Printer-friendly version

Greater financing options are now available to Brisbane residents who are planning any home efficency projects, as the Council has elected to have Brisbane participate in the California HERO (Home Energy Renovation Opportunity) Program.  Similar to CaliforniaFirst, another efficiency financing program, HERO finances projects such as distributed generation renewable energy sources, energy and water efficiency improvements, and electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure.  This is a completely voluntary program where qualifying projects are financed with the contracted amount collected via the property tax bill.  Thus, the HERO program is available to residential and commerical property owners only.  Visit the HERO website, to search their network of licensed, verified contractors.  You may also submit your e-mail address to if you wish to be notified once the program is active.

Sea Level Rise Open House

Printer-friendly version

Please join San Mateo County Supervisor Dave Pine and Supervisor Don Horsley for a Sea Level Rise Open House on January 30, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. at Genentech Conference Center.

Sea levels are rising and at an accelerating rate. In San Mateo County alone, rising sea levels put $24 billion in assets at risk.  In response, the County is completing a sea level rise vulnerability assessment to ensure our communities, ecosystems, and economy are prepared for rising waters.  The goals of the Open House are to share information on the County’s vulnerability assessment, and to hear how sea level rise could affect you. 

Open House Topics:

  • What is sea level rise?
  • What is the County doing to prepare?
  • What is at risk? 
  • What does sea level rise mean for you? 
  • How can you prepare for flooding this winter?
  • What is green infrastructure? How does it relate to sea level rise?

This will be a family-friendly event with interactive activities and eco-friendly raffle prizes!

Please join us for this important community conversation.

Visit SeaChangeSMC/events for more information and to RSVP.  You can also indicate whether or not you're attending the event on Facebook.

How to Humanely Haze a Coyote

Printer-friendly version

This is a helpful video that shows how to humanely haze an urban coyote. Even if you've never come across one in town, you should still know what to do to make it known to the coyote that your street or yard isn't where you'd like them to be.

Business License Letter

Printer-friendly version

The City recently selected MuniServices as a partner to assist the City's staff in processing business licenses and collecting the annual business license tax, which is based on a business's gross receipts.  If you are a Brisbane business owner, you probably have received by now a letter that looks like the one pictured right (click to enlarge).  This letter informs business owners that the City is extending the grace period to submit payment without penalties until February 29, 2016.  It also states that a renewal package will be sent in January with a form customized for their business.  Upon receipt of the renewal package, please review it carefully and notify MuniServices of any changes needed to your account.  For any questions, please call MuniServices at 1-866-240-3665 or e-mail .  Thank you for your patience as this transition gets underway!

FAA officials have also been invited to attend this Technical Working Group meeting.  We look forward to a meaningful and productive collaboration with the FAA and elected officials to provide real noise abatement mitigation to the Bay Area.
