Appointments in City Manager's Office

Printer-friendly version

Earlier this week, City Manager Clay Holstine announced two appointments he had made in his office.

Ingrid Padilla (pictured left) has been appointed as City Clerk, who, in large part connects the City Council, Commissions, Committees, and city staff with the Brisbane citizens they serve.  Ingrid will also administer democratic processes such as elections, access to city records, and all legislative actions ensuring transparency to the public.  She acts as a compliance officer for federal, state, and local statutes including the Political Reform Act, the Brown Act, and the Public Records Act and will arrange for ceremonial and official functions.

Angel Ibarra (pictured below) has been appointed as Administrative Management Analyst.  You may recognize her from the Planning Department where she assisted with plan checks and interfaced with many community members in issuing building permits and answering building code inquiries, in addition to providing staff support to the Planning Commission.  She will be working with Clay on special projects, backing Ingrid up on City Clerk duties, and another friendly face to greet you in the City Manager's Office.

Both Ingrid and Angel bring broad experiences and enthusiasm to their new assignments and we know they will serve the citizens of Brisbane well!

County Releases Draft Sea Level Rise Report

Printer-friendly version

The County this past week released the San Mateo County Draft Sea Level Rise Vulnerability Assessment, a tool to guide the County and its cities in understanding and preparing for sea level rise.  Funded through a grant from the California State Coastal Conservancy, the Draft Assessment is an effort of Sea Change SMC, the County’s sea level rise initiative administered through the Office of Sustainability. 

Using best available sea level rise modeling and local data, the Draft Assessment provides an overview of how flooding and erosion from sea level rise could affect the County and its cities.  Specifically, the report includes an analysis of which assets (such as highways, hospitals, and parks) and communities are at risk from different amounts of sea level rise; detailed case studies on 30 representative assets (Asset Vulnerability Profiles); and chapters on adaptation planning and next steps.  As a reminder, the case studies are not a prioritized list of the most vulnerable assets, but rather meant to be representative of the different types of assets in the County and to provide a template to further evaluate vulnerability.  The report aims to increase awareness of the issue countywide and to provide a foundation for planning and projects that increase resilience and reduce risks.

The Draft Assessment can be downloaded here. The official press release announcing the release of the Draft Assessment can be viewed here

The County appreciates the public's engagement in this process, and look forward to your comments and feedback. The comment period will last until May 5th and all comments must be submitted using this online Comment Submission Form.

The County is also holding a number of workshops/presentations that offer an opportunity to learn more about the Draft Assessment and next steps, and ask clarifying questions.  For more information on upcoming events and to RSVP for the public workshops, click here.  They are also listed out below:
