 As this year’s June 7 Presidential Primary Election gets closer, the San Mateo County Elections Office is calling on you to serve as an Election Officer, also known as poll workers, at polling places on Election Day. It is not too late to sign up!

For a countywide election, the Elections Office recruits and trains up to 2,000 Election Officers. 

To become an Election Officer, the signup process is very easy. You can call the Elections Office at 650-286-2810. Their staff will be happy to take down your information and sign you up. You can also visit www.shapethefuture.org to sign up online. The process only takes a few minutes. After signing up, you will be required to take a three-hour training, and you will receive an Appointment Letter. You will be paid a stipend of up to $148.

Election Officers are responsible for the smooth operation of all polling places on Election Day. They are there to ensure that every single voter can cast his or her ballot successfully. Election Officers are at the frontline of an election, and they are truly the faces of our democracy. 

Serving as an Election Officer will not only give you an opportunity to make a direct contribution to our democracy and local community, it will also help you to gain a deeper understanding of our election process. If you want to volunteer your time and service, if you want to make a difference, serving as an Elections Officer on Election Day is a great way to do so. We look forward to seeing you at the polls in the coming election.

Caltrain Construction Work

Printer-friendly version

Since April of 2015, Caltrain has been performing work within the railroad right-of-way in Brisbane as part of the Advanced Signal System Project to upgrade the safety, performance, and operating efficiency of the Peninsula’s commuter rail system. 

On May 20-22 and May 24-27, Caltrain will be conducting safety tests on the corridor as part of the final phase of implementing the Advanced Signal System Project.  To test the Advanced Signal System, including the roadway crossings, a test train will run through the corridor between 9:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.  Tests are conducted at night to avoid disruption of most of regular train service and properly record the results.  Neighbors may experience standard gate crossing noise and horns during this time and we apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

The Advanced Signal System, also called Communications Based Overlay Signal System (CBOSS) Positive Train Control (PTC) will equip the corridor with federally-mandated safety technology and increase system capacity to help accommodate future ridership demand. The Project will monitor and, if necessary, control train movement in the event of human error. This will increase safety by:

  • Eliminating the risk of train-to-train collisions
  • Reducing risk of potential derailments by enforcing speed limits
  • Providing additional safety for railroad workers on the tracks
  • Improving grade crossing performance to reduce gate downtime and improve local traffic circulation

The CBOSS PTC system is scheduled to be operational by 2015 and is a key component of the Caltrain Modernization Program, which will electrify the Caltrain Corridor by 2019.  An electrified Caltrain will be cleaner and quieter and will upgrade the system to provide faster and/or more frequent service to more stations and riders.

To implement the CBOSS PTC system, there are several installation phases (boring, conduit, fiber pulling, testing) that will occur within Caltrain's right-of-way, usually at night (8pm to 6am) in order to maintain regular train service.  Testing of the fiber cable and the overall system is scheduled for spring 2015.  Residents may experience some minor installation noise during this time.  For more information, please view the Caltrain's CBOSS PTC Project page or contact Caltrain at (650) 508-6499; e-mail: caltrainptc@samtrans.com .

National Public Works Week

Printer-friendly version

Since 1960, the American Public Works Association (APWA) has sponsored National Public Works Week.  Across North America, more than 29,000 members in the U.S. and Canada use this week to energize and educate the public on the importance of public works to their daily lives: planning, building, managing and operating at the heart of their local communities to improve everyday quality of life.

At the Thursday, May 19 City Council meeting, the Public Works Department will be present to receive a Proclamation from the Council declaring May 15-21, 2016 as Public Works Week.

The 2016 National Public Works Week Poster theme is "Public Works Always There." This theme showcases the pervasiveness of the men and women of the profession who are always there and always ready to serve their communities.

Thank you, Department of Public Works, for truly living this year's theme out!
