Garbage Rate Increase in North Fair Oaks

Last week at the Board of Supervisors meeting, I voted no to set the 2018 garbage and recyclables rates in County Service Area 8 (North Fair Oaks) and the other unincorporated areas within the South Bayside Waste Management Authority service area. The resolution proposed a 5%, residential rate increase of $1.48 per month for two 32-gallons or one 64-gallon garbage container. 

Measure K Funds Ravenswood Family Dentistry

I presented a resolution authorizing a one-time grant of Measure K fund to the Ravenswood Family Health Center for the Dentistry Renovation Expansion Project not to exceed $69,000. This fund will provide essential capital projects that will create new dental treatment rooms. This will increase the number of pediatric chairs at the Clinic to 9 and adult chairs to 12, and enable 3,500 more patients to be seen for dental needs.
