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.
Rodger’s Property Escrow Closure:
Escrow closed on December 27, 2022 for the purchase of the Rodger’s property on the northwest corner of 4th and Marin Street.
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.
Christmas Tree Disposal:
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.
Building Demolition – City Plaza & Recreation Center:
City Staff met with CVE Contracting Group, Inc. 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.
