Mayor Clarke Conway and City Manager Clay Holstine proudly accepted the award on behalf of the City from Institute for Local Government Interim Executive Director Corrie Manning.

The City of Brisbane received its third Beacon Program award today, September 13, 2018, at a special reception during the League of California Cities’ Annual Conference in Long Beach.

The Beacon Program is sponsored by the Institute for Local Government and the Statewide Energy Efficiency Collaborative.  This program honors local efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, to save energy, and the adoption of policies that promote sustainability.

For 2018, the City is honored to receive a Platinum Level Beacon Spotlight Award recognizing a 32% reduction in the agency GHG reduction area.  Previous honors include a 2015 overall Gold Level Beacon Award, recognizing significant accomplishments in all five award areas (Agency Energy Savings, Agency Natural Gas Savings, Agency Greenhouse Gas Reductions, Community Greenhouse Gas Reductions, and Sustainability Best Practices), and a 2016 Platinum Spotlight Award for Sustainability Best Practices.

These awards demonstrate the City of Brisbane’s ongoing commitment to lowering the environmental impact of our activities, and to preserving natural habitat for the benefit of current and future generations.

The California Voter’s Choice Act is a new law passed in 2016 that will modernize elections in California by allowing counties to conduct elections under a new model which provides greater flexibility and convenience for voters.  The Statewide General Election, taking place on November 6, 2018, will be the second time this new election model is enacted.

This new election model allows voters to choose how, when, and where to cast their ballot by: 1) Mailing every voter a ballot, 2) Expanding in-person early voting, and 3) Allowing voters to cast a ballot at any vote center within their county

This November, there will be one City Measure on the ballot.

Measure JJ: City of Brisbane General Plan Amendment Measure

In case you were wondering why the flags in the City are flying at half staff, it’s because of the firefighter fatalities in Redding.  They will remain at half staff until the end of day August 17th per North County Fire Authority Fire Chief, Ron Myers.  Flags are also flying at half staff for all fire stations in Daly City and Pacifica.  Thoughts and prayers to the families affected by this terrible wildfire burning in Shasta and Trinity Counties.

Last May, Bayshore Blvd. in Brisbane was closed to traffic one lane at a time to allow for paving contractors to rehabilitate, compact, cure and pave over the roadway using Cold In-Place Recycling practices.  This is an innovative and eco-friendly way to rehabilitate roadways as existing asphalt is re-used after it is ground and mixed with binder additives before it's placed back into the roadway.  Cold In-Place Recycling is also slightly less expensive than traditional hot mix asphalt overlay techniques.  This is the type of innovation that cities are doing and demonstrates what future SB-1 (Gas Tax) funds can be used for.
