Can You Picture It?

The 200 block of King Rd. Steep topography of the downhill slope. An 80-ft. guardrail which looks like it's lived through its glory days. If a vehicle strikes it one more time, will the guardrail serve its purpose and prevent the vehicle from careening over the side? The City is not willing to take the chance to find out.

One of the items on the agenda for this Monday's (3/2) City Council meeting is for staff to obtain fiscal authority to repair the mentioned guardrail. After consulting with a geotechnical engineer, it was recommended that the depth of the guardrail piers be doubled to account for the steep topography of the slope beyond the railing. This is what staff will be recommending to the Council, as the project falls in line with Brisbane's high regard for safety and care for its residents.

Then, there are some areas where pushing the limit proves beneficial. If you'd like to move beyond the Auto setting on your digital camera, the class "The Camera, the Technology, and Capturing the Image" is perfect for you. The class meets Wednesday evenings from 7:30pm - 9:30pm starting on March 4th. Call Russ Carmick at (415) 208-2143 for more details or just stop by City Hall and get signed up (Parks & Recreation is located on the 2nd floor).

With that, have a great weekend - enjoy the sun while it's out, and make plans to spend a wet Sunday safely indoors!
