Waste Management (WM):
The City was alerted that some resident’s trash and recycling was not collected on Monday. This was an error on the part of Waste Management. As part of the billing transition, customers have until October 1st to adjust to the transition from monthly to quarterly billing. Customers should be excluded from all collection efforts and late fees until October 2021.
According to WM, all customers who were missed on Monday morning will have their trash and recycling picked up. If your trash and recycling was not picked up, please contact 824-4690 to schedule a free pick up.
We also learned recently that the number provided on recent outreach materials provides no option for customers to actually speak with a customer service representative. It is for bill payment only. Waste Management has agreed to send out a post card and call all customers correcting this misinformation. The correct number to call if issues should arise is 530-824-4690 or 530-824-4700.
COVID-19 Federal Emergency Management Act (FEMA) Expenditure Reporting:
Staff are submitting expenditures to FEMA. At this point, we anticipate being reimbursed for personal protective equipment, plexiglass, and additional disinfection costs. We do not anticipate being reimbursed for the waiver of online payment fees.
We wish everyone a safe and happy 4th of July!
Municipal Service Review (MSR):
Staff met with Mark Teague (Place works) to discuss the MSR update. All department heads were given their portions of the MSR to review and update. A zoom meeting is planned for next Wednesday during our weekly staff meeting to go over the details.

Staff is currently preparing the logistics for the first Food Truck Tuesday event to be held on August 3rd; as of now it is shaping up to be a great evening. Please share the event dates with everyone you know (the flyer stating the event dates is attached).
COVID-19 Relief Fund of the Community Foundation of the North State Grant:
The City has been notified by the Community Foundation of the North State that the City has been awarded a $1000 grant from the COVID-19 Relief Fund of Community Foundation of the North State for general support for Rodgers Theatre. Through Staff discussions with Tony Cardenas of the Corning Community Foundation, it was determined the best use for these funds would be to replace the marquee panels at the Theatre.
