TO: MAYOR AND COUNCIL
FROM: KRISTINA MILLER, CITY MANAGER
DATE: January 7, 2022

CITY MANAGER:

Proposition 68 Park Development and Revitalization Grant:
Christina Meeds, Recreation Coordinator and I met with realtor, Collette Glattfelder, on January 4th to begin property negotiations. I also received clarification from the State that an entirely new appraisal will not be required unless requested by the current owners. We will be required to have a 3rd party review of the appraisal by a licensed appraiser.

Upcoming Meetings:
I have a meeting with 3CORE on January 6th.
I will be attending a Special Executive Committee meeting of the Northern California Cities’ Self Insurance Fund meeting on January 13th.
As Vice-Chair I have a Regional Sacramento Division City Manager’s Meeting on January 13th.

PUBLIC WORKS:

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 through January 17th.

Water Usage Outside City Limits:
In December, we provided 11,445 gallons of water to County residents that have dry wells. This amount is just over half of what was sold in November. Currently the City has 33 County residents, that are located within 5 miles of City Hall, that are approved to purchase City Water. We have not had any new residents sign up since October. Of these 33 County residents 9 purchased water in December. The average customer is purchasing 1,271 gallons of water per month. We are currently not providing water to the Paskenta Water District as their water source is still providing adequate water.

POLICE DEPARTMENT:

Patrol: In addition to responding to 164 calls for service, a total of 28 officer reports were taken and there were 70 officer-initiated incidents, including 31 traffic stops. Officers made 15 misdemeanor and 0 felony arrests. Officers issued 20 citations, of which; 12 were misdemeanors, 8 were infractions during the period of December 29, 2021, through January 5, 2022.

Training: Officers continue to participate in POST Portal training and Lexipol Daily Training Bulletins. Other POST on-line training continues for Patrol and Dispatch personnel.

“Not all storms come to disrupt your life, some come to clear your path.”

FIRE DEPARTMENT:

The Corning Volunteer Fire Department responded to 19 calls for service last week, they were: 15 medicals, 1 mutual aid fire, 1 traffic collision, 1 public service and 1 investigation.

The Orland, Artois, and Glenn Codora Volunteer Fire Departments were dispatched to 12 calls for service last week, they were: 7 medicals, 2 fires, 2 traffic collisions and 1 hazardous condition.

Happy New Year. Please check your smoke alarms, they do save lives!!!

Thank you to all the residents, businesses and schools that donated to our Christmas basket program this year. It was a huge success and we delivered to 95 families, the most ever.

RECREATION:

Lots of new stuff happening this upcoming year regarding parks…
Children’s Park will be getting new play equipment very soon. I plan to bring two options to the Council meeting on Tuesday January 11th for a final decision.
Northside Park’s Request for Proposal will be presented at the January 11th City Council meeting as well.
Clark Park Tennis Court area playground is coming along. The plan is to remove the concrete and install a playground in the back southwest corner. A painted-on playground is proposed for the remainder of the concrete. I’m hoping to bring a proposal to the City Council on January 25th.

Corning Recreation’s Dance Recital was a HUGE hit. We had standing room only and the kids did an amazing job performing.

Winter recreation enrollment is open, and classes start next week. Currently there are 53 youth enrolled.
Happy New Year!!!
