Important Reminder

Printer-friendly version

The March 11 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in Japan left more than 15,180 dead, 5,330 injured and more than 8,700 people missing across 18 prefectures. The disaster also damaged or destroyed some 125,000 buildings and cut electricity and/or water to more than five million households. Tsunami waves exceeded 30 feet in height and penetrated up to six miles inland in some places. In all, more than 180 square miles flooded.

The earthquake was centered 81 miles east of Sendai, Japan, a city of more than a million residents; the depth was approximately 20 miles.

Imagine a similar seismic event just west of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Remember, the Bay Area sits on the same Pacific Ring of Fire, home to approximately 90 percent of the world's earthquakes and 80 percent of the world's largest earthquakes.


Are you ready?


The 7th annual Disaster Preparedness Day is set for 10am-2pm, Saturday, June 11, at the San Mateo Event Center.

That day also is the first day of the 2011 San Mateo County Fair at the same place.

Anyone arriving BEFORE 11am gets free parking and free admission to the fair that day.

Please see the PDF flier for more details.  The Brisbane Office of Emergency Services (OES) and our Community Emergency Volunteers (CEVs) will also be participating in the event.

Hope you can make it to this important and FREE event!

Community Forum

If you missed Tuesday evening's Community Forum, you can catch the entire taping of it here (actual meeting starts at 4 minutes, 45 seconds).  Bob Dettmer and Ken Walker of the Brisbane School District, along with Clarke Conway and Cliff Lentz of the Brisbane City Council serve on the 2 x 2 Committee, with the goal to reach out to more members in the community and hear their concerns about the School District.  President of the School Board, Ken Walker, gave an overview of the District, their teaching methodology, and parental involvement in regards to fundraising and the role of BEST/PTO. 

Superintendent Toni Presta went over the District's budget outlook and spoke on the need to look "outside the box", for instance, the consolidation of neighboring school districts.  The rest of the meeting was dedicated to hearing from those in the audience, where youth and adults got involved.  Another 2 x 2 Committee meeting will take place after the results from the phone survey come back.  Details of that meeting will be made known on the City's website and publications when they become known.

A Taste of Government

Printer-friendly version

This past Monday, the 2nd grade and 2nd/3rd grade combo classes from Brisbane Elementary School (BES) took a walk down to City Hall for a guided tour of the all departments, winding up and down hallways and meeting the staff behind the services provided to them and their families.  This was to supplement their Government curriculum they had been studying.  Both classes convened in-between tours to get an overview of the kinds of services the City provides, and how decisions in their community are made.  Fittingly, Councilwoman Richardson was present to talk about the election process, the different committees and commissions that report to the City Council, and even took questions from students.  Becca Waldo, completing her student teaching requirement with second grade teacher Ms. Jacobson, had the index cards on-hand where students had pre-written their questions on.  Good thing a step-stool was not too far away.  We thank Ms. Jacobson and Ms. Shereda for bringing their classes down; this was a great experience for us at City Hall, as well!

Recap of Police Outreach Event

Printer-friendly version

Last Saturday's Community Outreach Event, put on by the Brisbane Poilce Department, was a fabulous opportunity for community members of all ages to come to the Community Park and learn about the department and its various functions.  Did you know that Brisbane has a sergeant and two officers that serve on the Northern Regional San Mateo County SWAT team, which is comprised of officers from neighboring agencies in addition to our own?  Well, such is the case, and those who came got to find out more about that, as well as take a look inside the equipment the team uses, such as the "Bear" SWAT vehicle.   The event proved to be a great opportunity to get to know the officers, ask questions, and provided PLENTY of photo opportunities.  In addition to the "Bear" SWAT vehicle being on display was the PD motorcycle, patrol cars, and some of officers' equipment that the public could see, touch, and even try on!  Judging from the pictures, it's likely that it's not just the PD that can say last week's open house was a worthwhile community event to attend.

Lipman Slide Repair

Printer-friendly version

The Lipman Slide Repair Project is breaking ground...literally.  On Monday, contractors arrived on-site and the equipment (made up of 1 bulldozer excavator, 1 padfoot compactor, 1 forklift, and 1 skip loader) made its way up Visitacion Wednesday afternoon. From now until right before school is back in session, contractors will be working to cut back the hillside, which moved outwards towards the Lipman tennis courts as a result of the mudslide that occured there during the 2006 winter storms.  Below is a "before" picture of the construction site, and the aforementioned equipment:

To prevent future mudslides from ocurring in this area, a retaining wall will be installed on the hillside.  The project is anticipated to be largely paid for through a FEMA reimburseable grant, as well as some State dollars.  Work will continue throughout the summer months and conclude by the beginning of the school year in mid-August.  During this time, the tennis courts will be closed, and the area of the playing field will be limited, indicated by the orange construction fencing.  We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time of construction and rehabilitation.

One Million Californians Still Not Buckling Up

(Brisbane), Calif.
– As families across California plan for upcoming spring travel, there’s not much you can do to control the cost of filling up the gas tank, but you can avoid a costly ticket by making sure that everyone in the car wears their seat belt. Law enforcement throughout the state, including Brisbane Police will be looking for unbelted drivers and passengers as part of the 2011 Click It or Ticket mobilization, May 23 – June 5.  The fines and fees for first time adult seat belt violations is a minimum of $142.  For children under 16, the fine is $445 for a first time offense.

Because nighttime passenger vehicle occupants are among those least likely to buckle up and most likely to die in crashes when unrestrained, nighttime enforcement has become a priority of the Click It or Ticket mobilization. Nationwide, of those who died in nighttime crashes in 2009, nearly two-thirds (62 percent) were not wearing seat belts at the time of their fatal crashes.

“Many nighttime traffic deaths can be prevented if more motorists simply start wearing their seat belts.  Law enforcement throughout the area will be looking for seat belt violators, day and night,” said Police Chief Lisa Macias.  “Citations will be issued without warning.  It’s not just about avoiding a costly ticket; it’s about keeping the ones you care about alive. Remember to buckle up on every trip, day and night.”

California’s current seat belt use rate of 96.2 percent is at an all- time high, but that still leaves nearly one million people who are not buckling up, putting their lives at risk every time they get into the car.  The Click It or Ticket mobilization is credited with increasing the state’s adult seat belt usage rate from 92.5 percent in 2005 to 96.2 percent in 2010.

“We are very proud of California’s seat belt and child safety seat use rates,” said Christopher J. Murphy, Director of the California Office of Traffic Safety.  “However, with nearly one million motorists still not buckling up, there is much more work to do. Reaching the last four percent of motorists is crucial to reaching our goal of zero deaths.”

More than 600 permanent Click It or Ticket highway signs, which have been up since 2005, have been updated to reflect the ‘Minimum $142’ message as a reminder to motorists that failing to buckle up is costly.

Properly restrained drivers, passengers and children have a 50 percent better chance of surviving a crash than unbelted occupants.  Those ejected from vehicles in crashes or roll-overs are up to 35 times more likely to die than restrained occupants.  In 2009 alone, seat belts saved approximately 12,713 lives nationwide.  In California, it is estimated that 320 people who were killed in 2009 would be alive today if they had been wearing seat belts.

Maker Faire 5/21 & 5/22

Printer-friendly version

The Maker Faire celebrates the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) mindset and is an amazing showcase of creativity and cool technology.  It's stimulating, inspiring, and fun for all ages. 

This year, San Mateo County Environmental Health will be hosting a booth at the Faire, and at it, staff from the Countywide Water Pollution Prevention Program will be handing out a "recipe" ring they've developed for homemade cleaning products.  There will also be giveaways of alternative non-toxic cleaning products.  This is great for folks with kids and pets, and anyone who want to use less toxic chemicals in and around the home. 

The Maker Faire will be held rain or shine at the San Mateo County Event Center (1346 Saratoga Dr., San Mateo), Saturday May 21st from 10:00am - 8:00pm and Sunday May 22nd from 10:00am - 6:00pm.  Tickets can be purchased on-site or in advance.  Click here to purchase tickets or for more information.

No Better Time to Plan

Printer-friendly version

When it comes to emergency preparedness, other tasks may seem to take precedence - meeting a deadline for work, hitting the gym, getting dinner on the table, etc.  Today, however, staff from City Hall carried out an exercise they knew was necessary to perform.  This morning, they gathered in the Emergency Operations Center (EOC), located on the 2nd floor of City Hall, and proceeded to get "briefed" on the situation: at 6:00am, City had suffered a 6.2 earthquake, which caused a fire at Brisbane Elementary School and a mudslide on the 200 block of Alvarado St.  Staff then broke out into their various sections - Logistics, Administration, Finance, Planning, Communications, and Operations.  The room became abuzz with energy as staff worked quickly to activate their sections.  Pretty soon, the phones started ringing, with mock callers inquiring about where they should evacuate to.  Each section carried out their duties fairly smoothly, working with one another to pass information.

After the exercise was over, staff debriefed about areas they felt could be improved, with Office of Emergency Services (OES) Director, Randy Breault, taking down notes, along with OES Coordinator Shelley Romriell.  This proved to be an invaluable exercise, and one in which staff left feeling they were now in better positions to be able to serve the Brisbane residents in the case of an emergency situation ever descending upon this community.

BTWD 2011 Recap

Printer-friendly version

Yesterday's Bike to Work Day was another roaring success in Brisbane...or should we say, a rolling success.  782 cyclists stopped or rode by one of Brisbane's two Energizer Stations.  The higher-traffic station, located on Lagoon @ Tunnel, had 327 cyclists stop to pick up BTWD swag bags and re-energize with refreshments, with 332 passer-by's.  Energizer Station volunteers Dee Sano, Jeanne Keresztes, and Bob and Susan Maynard made sure the riders were well-stocked on goodies and cheered them on as they continued on their ride to work.  The Public Works Crew even lent the use of their changeable message sign to encourage wide participation in the event.  It worked, and was a nice greeting for those coming over and down Tunnel Ave. Bridge.

At the other Energizer Station, located on the corner of Old County & Bayshore, volunteers Russ Carmick and Jason Lucey greeted participants and made sure everyone was well-hydrated.

Brisbane Marina Maintenance Worker Todd Curtis stopped by with his son Eddison, dropped Eddison off at school, and then continued on his way to work.  Other city staff members such as Russ Carmick and Karen Kinser also participated by biking into work.

Thank you to the many volunteers, as well as Joe and Theresa Riedell from the Senior Center, Walt from Public Works, Caroline from Bakers of Paris, and George from Mangiare, who each contributed invaluably to the success of Bike to Work Day 2011 in Brisbane.

Friday AM Press Conference

At 9:30am, Assemblyman Jerry Hill held a press conference in front of VWR, located on at 3745 Bayshore Blvd.  He was joined by Brisbane Mayor Cy Bologoff, Councilmembers Sepi Richardson, Clarke Conway, and Cliff Lentz, City Manager Clay Holstine, and Administrative Services Director Stuart Schillinger. 

Representatives from the Teamsters and the San Mateo County Central Labor Council, who testified at Monday's hearing, were also present to support Assemblyman Hill's introduction of legislation eliminating intra-state tax breaks for companies who re-locate within California and receive taxpayer dollars for doing so. Assemblymember Hill's bill will be retro-dated January 2011 and be heard by the legislators in June.  It will require a two-thirds vote to pass.

VWR Public Hearing

Printer-friendly version

It was a full house at Brisbane City Hall's Community Meeting Room this morning.  Most of those in attendance were workers from VWR, upset over the fact that they would be losing their jobs when VWR closes its distribution facility in Brisbane and opens a brand-new one in Visalia, CA.  The time of when this actually happens is unknown, since management at VWR has been unresponsive to City officials up to this point.  Voice messages and e-mails have been sent, but have gone unreturned.  Thus, a hearing was held, called for by Congresswoman Jackie Speier and State Treasurer Bill Lockyer.  Joining them were Freddy Beaman of the Brisbane Chamber of Commerce, Dan Lieberman of Senator Leland Yee's Office, Councilman Clarke Conway, Brian Perkins of Congresswoman Speier's office, Assemblyman Jerry Hill, and Shelley Kessler of the San Mateo County Labor Council.

In his opening comments, Councilmember Conway noted how VWR leaving will "decimate our services".  Brisbane City Manager Clay Holstine, expanded on this notion, stating how the City will be down 18.5% in General Fund revenues - equivalent to approximately $2.1 millon dollars.  Finance Director Stuart Schillinger was also on-hand to answer questions of the panel. 


John Thomas, who works in the Receiving Dept. at VWR and will be soon losing his job, asked the question, "How do they [VWR] think we're going to get out of this recession?"  Three other employees from VWR also called for the Congresswoman's support, as they have worked hard for the company for many years, and feel VWR's response by not allowing them to re-locate in an effort to keep their jobs is an injustice.  Congresswoman Speier called it "unconscionable."

State Treasurer Lockyer and Congresswoman Speier agreed to send a letter to Governor Brown, requesting corporations not be allowed to use California Taxpayer money and Tax Credits to take jobs from one City in California and move them to another.

We thank Congresswoman Speier and Treasurer Lockyer for their leadership and calling this morning's hearing.  In the next few days, we will have a copy of the hearing available on the City's website for you to view.  You can also tune in to the evening news tonight at 6pm, as every major news station was present.

National Public Works Week

Printer-friendly version

National Public Works Week is observed each year during the third full week of May.  It is a celebration of the tens of thousands of men and women in North America who provide and maintain the infrastructure and services collectively known as Public Works.

Instituted as a public education campaign by the American Public Works Association (APWA) in 1960, NPWW calls attention to the importance of public works in community life. The Week seeks to enhance the prestige of the often-unsung heroes of our society - the professionals who serve the public good every day with quiet dedication.

And we know what great lengths our Public Works crew goes to to do their jobs...but how about you?  Most likely, you've seen them performing their more visible tasks, such as keeping the Community Park clear of litter, mowing, lining, and striping our fields so they're ready for youth and adult sporting activities, making home visits to make sure our toilets aren't running a leak, helping residents collect their green waste during the Annual Winter Clean-Up, and maintaining the street light fixtures and building facilities in town.  But what about the less visible tasks?  Our Public Works crew also keeps busy cleaning the sewage pipes, flushing the water lines, and exercising the valves so that water can be redirected in the case of an emergency situation. Clearly, they are responsible for many of the things we often take for granted and expect to "just work".  Of course, there isn't a service in existence that doesn't have a body behind the scenes ensuring things work as they're intended to.  Therefore, we wanted to give our Public Works Dept. the recognition they most indeed deserve.  Help us in doing so, especially during National Public Works Week, May 16th - 21st.

Federal-State Inquiry

Printer-friendly version

Congresswoman Jackie Speier (D-CA 12) and California State Treasurer Bill Lockyer have formed a Federal-State Inquiry into Job Losses and Misdirected Tax Policy to investigate the proposed relocation of VWR International. The Inquiry will hold a public hearing on May 9th from 10:30 a.m. - noon at Brisbane City Hall (50 Park Place, Brisbane). A tentative list of participants is below.

The plan by VWR International to close its distribution center in Brisbane, and relocate to a new warehouse over 300 miles away, in rural Visalia, raises a number of important issues, including environmental impacts of the new facility on the Visalia community, fiscal disruption and employment impacts on the City of Brisbane, the appropriate use of public subsidies from state and local government, and the transparency of public processes that lead to governmental approvals and subsidies.

Car Wash Discount Card

Printer-friendly version

Car washing at home causes soap and other pollutants to end up in the storm drains that lead to the Bay or the ocean. Commercial car washes use less water and any discharge goesinto the sanitary sewer system. The San Mateo Countywide Water Pollution Prevention Program is partnering with 11 commercial car washes located throughout San Mateo County to offer a discount coupon for a car wash, with the closest location to Brisbane being Millbrae Express Car Wash.  If you're looking to get your car squeaky clean, while keeping pollutants out of the storm drains, then stop by City Hall and pick up your one-time use discount card!  Offers good through 12/31/2011.

Thanks to the dedication and work done by a Brisbane resident and Parks, Beaches, and Recreation Commissioner Cris Hart, the area outside Julie's on the corner of Mariposa and Visitacion looks a whole lot nicer.  Cris also made sure to coordinate with the Public Works Department to ensure that the green waste he trimmed down was disposed of properly. A great big THANK YOU to a great Brisbane volunteer who made the effort to keep Brisbane beautiful!  Thanks, Cris!
