Posted on April 20, 2022


TO:        MAYOR AND COUNCIL

FROM:  KRISTINA MILLER, CITY MANAGER

DATE:   April 22, 2022

 

 

CITY MANAGER:

Fiscal Year 2022/2023 Budget:

I met with Department Heads regarding their fiscal year 2022/2023 budget proposals on April 18th.

Proposition 47 Cohort 2 Restore Program:

On April 20th I facilitated a Proposition 47 Cohort 2 Quarterly Advisory meeting.  Tehama County Department of Education has agreed to lead the Cohort 3 Grant.

Waste Management Smart Truck:

Waste Management is in the initial stages of implementing its Smart Truck technology.  There is a 10% threshold for recycling or yard waste to be deemed contaminated.  Lids open 12 inches or more are subject to overage fees.  Residents and commercial accounts will start receiving warnings of contamination or overfilled carts.  These warnings will turn to fines after 3 warnings.  If residents are finding their recycling cart full, they should order a second recycling cart by calling 800-479-8101 or the local service number at 530-824-4690.  It is included with their service at no additional cost.  Residents should not place bags full of recyclables in their recycling cart.  Doing so will be considered contamination.  They should empty their bag of recyclables directly into their recycling cart and then place the empty bag in their trash cart.

Upcoming Meetings:

  • April 21st: I will be attending a Northern California Cities’ Self Insurance Fund (NCCSIF) meeting in Rocklin, CA.
  • April 21st: I will also be attending a California Product Stewardship Council Board meeting.
  • April 27th: I will be attending a Groundwater Commission meeting.  I will also be meeting with City/County Administrators about what to expect and plan for in terms of dry wells this upcoming summer the same day.
