In mid-September, following the raptor nesting season, a row of 16 eucalyptus trees will be removed on San Mateo Ln. Removal of these trees (between Humboldt and Kings) allows for a non-native species to be replaced by ones that are indigenous to Brisbane, and is also the first step towards restoration of the canyon (San Mateo Ln follows along one of the canyon reserves). It is yet to be determined which Brisbane-native trees will be taking the place of the eucalyptus, but they will undoubtedly be a better characterization of the town's original roots.
The City Council has taken a brief recess but will be resuming their semi-monthly meetings beginning on Sept. 15th. One of the items on the agenda will be a presentation by the City's Administrative Services Director regarding an increase in the City's water and sewer rates. This scarce resource has everyone talking, so come and see what the buzz over the rate increase is all about. If you would prefer, you may also contact the City's Administrative Services Director, Stuart Schillinger, directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or by dialing 508-2151. He would be more than happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have.
FRIDAY NIGHT FEVER!!
