City Manager's Monthly Report - September 2016
Welcome to the City Manager's Monthly Report Blog!
The City Manager's Monthly Report Blog is a consolidation of issues, communications, and Town activity during the prior month that have been reported to the City Council as part of their weekly email from the City Manager. Sometimes information is duplicated over the course of several emails to the City Council to ensure that it is reviewed.
As I review the information to include in the Monthly Report, to the extent possible, I remove duplicate updates (older emails get shorter) in favor of the most recent - although some will be duplicative if there is other relevant information included; I try to remove information regarding events that have already occurred; and I edit information that requires update - hopefully to make it more useful. However, overall, the information is generally the same as it was presented to the City Council in their weekly Council email.
The Report reads with the most recent first. As always, if you have any questions or comments regarding the Monthly Report, please feel free to contact me via email or phone.
My weekly email to the City Council typically goes out every Friday.
Town of Atherton
Tom Fortin will be leaving San Mateo County Libraries to take on a new challenge as Chief of Main with the San Francisco Public Library. His last day in the office will be September 16.
San Mateo County Libraries has been fortunate to benefit from Tom’s extensive public library experience and outstanding leadership. During his tenure, he has successfully managed system personnel activities and employee relations, library operations and system services, and numerous new facility and renovation projects. Tom has been a valued and well-respected member of the Library’s Admin Team and his contributions have been essential to the library’s success.

Construction Sign at 102 Encinal
Staff visited the site and found that the sign’s size would comply if it were parallel to the street, not angularly placed. It will be corrected (location).

Council Member Widmer visited the Shoreway Facility and took the attached pictures. During the visit it was noted that the fire on the residential line began as a small section but quickly spread due to the materials movement process. The safety procedures were followed but not before some quick reaction by Chad Zupfer, the Supervisor, which likely saved the facility. Chad’s quick reaction resulted in no injuries or fatalities.
We will be installing three display cases for the civic center project designed to give viewers a “perspective” view of what the Civic Center will look like when complete. These will be in before the September 25 Atherton Now Family Affair Event.
