Thankful, In All Circumstances

Happy Thanksgiving to the Brisbane Community, from all of us at City Hall. It's a time for families united, second (third, or fourth) helpings, and remembering what really matters. We hope your families have a wonderful celebration.

We'd like to take this time to update you on the Cosco Busan Oil Spill which took place Nov. 8th in the San Francisco Bay. Stated in a press update, released today from the San Mateo County Office of Emergency Services, "Experts are anticipating that this week's seasonally high tides may sweep more tar balls onto our shores in places where they may not have been found previously, and that the combination of sunny weather and the Thanksgiving holiday will likely draw many visitors to San Mateo County beaches." The San Mateo County Health Department's Division of Environmental Health (SMCDEH) considers the risk to human health to be low, but if you or your family is planning a visit, please click here for safety tips offered by the County to beach goers.

With that, may you all have a safe and enjoyable holiday!
