A reminder that between 10:00 am - 2:00 pm this Saturday Sept. 13th, the 4th annual Disaster Preparedness Day will be taking place at the San Mateo Event Center. September is National Preparedness Month, so this free expo will sure to have attendess learning how to be ready for the next disaster, enjoying free hot dogs and soda, plus covering a quick overview in basic CPR. And new this year, you'll be able to meet the sheriff's bomb squad robot in person. All that to say, you have very little reason to not be there!

Speaking of being there, you should have seen the Marina last Sunday where rows of antique cars lined the waterfront and entire main parking celebration of the annual British Car Meet. Many families came to gaze at the shiny collector cars, and enjoy a nice stroll along the Marina...with maybe a Lions Club-prepared banger or burger in hand. The weather was sunny and perfect, too...just another gorgeous and peaceful day in Brisbane!

Leading us to the last weekly update...and that is the announcement that first on the City Council's agenda for this coming Monday's Sept. 15th meeting will be the reading by the mayor of a proclamation for A Day of Peace in the City of Stars. In observance for the past 27 years, the International Day of Peace now includes the the call for a full day of peace and cease-fire throughout the world. Join your fellow community members at the Gazebo in the Community Park on Sept. 21st at 7:00 pm to commemorate this very important day. May we band together, so that the peace we all long for in the world might find a home in our small town, and be evident to all.

Note: If you're looking for an opportunity to see the community do some banding together, you may need not look any further than Monday's Council meeting. As part of that meeting, City Council will be finalizing a water and sewer rate increase. Public input as to how we pay for continuing to supply clean, safe, and reliable drinking water and sewer services is appreciated. Once again, any questions or concerns can be directed to the city's Administrative Services Director, Stuart Schillinger, at either or 508-2151.
