1/27 Police Activity at the Ridge

Printer-friendly version

On 1/27 at approximately 9:47pm, a resident on the unit block of Butterweed heard her door bell ring, which she elected not to answer.  A few moments later, she heard the sound of someone attempting to turn the doorknob followed by glass breaking coming from her garage.  The resident called 911 and the Brisbane Police arrived in less than 3 minutes.

Officers located and arrested a subject hiding in a vehicle outside the residence.  It is believed that a second suspect fled the scene on foot prior to our arrival.

The suspect did not gain entry into the home and was not located after a perimeter search with K-9's from Daly City and South San Francisco Police.

On 1/28 at 1:00 am, while officers were investigating the above mentioned incident, we received a call from a resident on Rock Wren.  The resident had just arrived home and found his home had been burglarized.  The same MO was used as the side window of the garage was smashed.

The resident told police he had seen a suspicious unoccupied vehicle in the area earlier in the day at approximately 1:00 pm.  The resident also stated the vehicle was still in the area at 5:00 pm but this time there was a male subject sleeping inside of the vehicle.  The description of the vehicle matched the vehicle from the earlier arrest.  This case is currently under investigation.

We would like to add that you are the eyes and ears of our community and we strongly recommend residents call the police as soon as possible when suspicious activity is seen or heard.  This may include unfamiliar vehicles or people in your neighborhood and the sound of shattering glass or car alarms sounding.

Again, any time you see or hear something suspicious or out of the ordinary in your neighborhood, please call us at (415) 467-1212.  Thank you.

Council Goal-Setting Workshop

Printer-friendly version

This past Sunday, the City Council met for a Special Goal-Setting Workshop at the DoubleTree Hotel in Brisbane.  They were joined by the City’s management staff as well as several members of the public.  After lunch, the Council received an overview of “Priority-Based Budgeting” from the City Manager, the new format going forward for the budget that the Council’s Fiscal and Administrative Policies Subcommittee began reviewing earlier this year.  Our Administrative Services Director has developed an interactive fiscal model to assist in identifying long-term trends, in addition to the impacts of spending commitments in regards to future budgets.  That model was shown to the Council using various assumptions.  The Council then took the rest of the time to review their current Community Oriented Goals and re-worked them to the following proposed Community Goals/Results (not in any particular order): Fiscally Prudent, Safe Community, Community Building, Ecological Sustainability, and Economic Development.  At their meeting of February 4th, the Council will set a date to follow-up with last Sunday’s Goal-Setting Workshop.  The next step in the Priority Based Budgeting process is for the Council to develop performance measures for each program.  These performance measures will assess how we are doing in meeting the Community’s Goals.  Stay up to date with the latest by signing up for Weekly Website Updates from the City by e-mailing ccheung@ci.brisbane.ca.us or staying connected online via social media.  For a full list of the City’s social media sites, please see: http://brisbaneca.org/brisbanes-social-media-pages

Peninsula Clean Energy

Printer-friendly version

Please join us for an informational workshop on Tuesday, January 26th at 7:30pm at City Hall and learn more about a potential new energy option in San Mateo County.  Peninsula Clean Energy is the name given to the potential Community Choice Energy (CCE) program in San Mateo County.  This potential program would offer residential and commercial electricity customers new energy options, including higher renewable energy content at competitive rates.  If formed, electricity customers in the County would be able to choose between Peninsula Clean Energy and PG&E as their electricity purchaser.  Peninsula Clean Energy customers would receive multiple electricity options, each with a different amount of renewable energy content, at prices competitive with PG&E. 

It is expected that sometime in February, the Council will be considering joining as a participating agency of the Joint Powers Authority (JPA), which would allow Brisbane residential and commercial electricity customers the ability to participate in Peninsula Clean Energy. 

To be part of the dialogue, get project updates and learn more about the program, visit the Peninsula Clean Energy website or Facebook page: http://fb.com/groups/pencleanenergy.

Note: A 30-minute tutorial on how to register for and use Brisbane Town Hall will take place prior to the PCE Workshop, starting at 6pm in the Community Meeting Room.  Staff will be available with extra laptops to help residents with on-site registration.  We hope to hear from more residents; the City is listening!
