Remote Meetings -Assembly Bill 2449 (AB 2449):
Due to AB 2449, the City will no longer be offering the option to remote into City Council meeting because if we do so and there is an internet connectivity issue no decisions can be made until the connection is restored. Council members can use “just cause” for remoting in two times per year for childcare or caregiving, a contagious illness, a need related to a physical or mental disability, or travel while on official City business. Council members should let me know as soon as they are aware of the need to remote in, as there are specific requirements the City must follow.
Building Official Interviews:
Interviews for the Building Official position were held on Monday December 19th.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Leaf Pick Up:
Leaf pickup will continue as time allows. Leaf piles must not have branches, brush or other debris or they will not be removed. Please make sure leaves are not blocking gutters preventing water flow.

A wood waste bin will be available in front of the City Corporation Yard located at 1106 Butte Street for free disposal of live Christmas Trees only. Please remove all decorations. This service will be available starting this week and will continue through mid-January.

We are currently waiting for PG&E to complete the electric and gas service disconnections, but it is anticipated that the building demolition on the block located on the south side of Solano St. directly across from City Hall will start mid to late January with a 2-week construction time.
Happy Holidays from the Public Works Department!
