When and How to Report Water Waste

When and How to Report Water Waste

We’ve all witnessed water abuse: broken sprinklers flooding a sidewalk, sprinklers spraying on rainy days, hoses left running.  With the state of California in its third year of drought the City needs your help in eliminating water waste.  Water waste is defined as the following:... Read More

  • Causing or permitting excessive water to discharge, flow, or run to waste into any gutter, sanitary sewer, water course, or storm drain, or to any adjacent property, from any tap, hose faucet, pipe, sprinkler, or nozzle. In the case of irrigation, “discharge,” “flow,” or “run to waste” means that the earth intended to be irrigated has been saturated with water to the point that excess water flows over the earth to waste.
  • Allowing water fixtures or heating or cooling devices to leak or discharge excessively.

Award Supports Public Defender’s Record Mitigation Clinic

Award Supports Public Defender’s Record Mitigation Clinic

Yolo County Public Defender Tracie Olson announced the Yolo Indian Gaming Local Community Benefit Committee has awarded $19,495 from the Gaming Special Distribution Fund to support the Public Defender’s Record Mitigation Clinic. 

California law allows rehabilitated offenders to petition the court to expunge their past convictions, reduce their felony convictions to misdemeanors, earn early termination of probation, or seal their juvenile or arrest records.  The goal of the Record Mitigation Clinic is to assist rehabilitated offenders with applications to the court for post-conviction legal remedies that serve to clear up their criminal records.  The Gaming Special Distribution Funds will allow the clinic to conduct outreach and perform legal services specifically for ex-offenders who were arrested related to tribal casino operations.

Front Street Animal Shelter prepares for the busiest week of the year

Shelters across the country are bracing themselves for the increase of stray animals that escape the safety of their homes in fear of fireworks.  While July 4th may be a time for BBQ’s, fireworks and homemade ice cream, it is less thrilling for the family pet. Loud booms and the smell of acrid smoke is often enough to instill panic in some animals, who will do anything to escape the noise and perceived threat.  Area pet lovers are encouraged to take some precautions in advance of the big day and the Front Street Animal Shelter is offering simple, easy and affordable solutions to keep our four legged friends safe.

Open House set for I Street Bridge Replacement Project

Open House set for I Street Bridge Replacement Project

The cities of Sacramento and West Sacramento are hosting an open house to share information and receive input from the community about the I Street Bridge Replacement Project on Thursday, June 19 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Stanford Gallery, 111 I Street.

The I Street Bridge provides a critical connection between Sacramento and West Sacramento but its current condition causes traffic congestion during commute hours and unfriendly conditions for bicycles and pedestrians. As a result, the cities are beginning the process of planning to construct a new bridge upstream of the existing I Street Bridge.  The project is in the environmental and preliminary design phase, which will extend to 2016.
