Prepare for the Storm.....

The first storm of 2019 is set to hit the Town and the rest of the Bay Area later this evening. The most significant part of the storm is expected to begin on Saturday morning. As it approaches, it is a good time to prepare your households for the heavy rains, power outages and falling debris that inevitably occur throughout our town during a typical wet weather season.  The Town reminds everyone that NOW is the time to make sure your emergency backup power generators, sump pumps, and other detention systems are in good working order
This is the best time to assure your flashlights are filled with fresh batteries and in a handy location as well as candles and lanterns to help deal with a small scale power outage. For those concerned with the possibility of small-scale flooding issues, the Town offers up to 20 free sandbags free of charge to its residents. Residents can visit the Public Works Corporation Yard at 99 Station Lane and load the bags using the shovel and bags provided. The facility is located behind the permit center and is available 24/7/365.

During the worst weather episodes, you can count on your Public Works and Police Departments to be there. Please remember that if you must travel during a storm, do observe our vehicles with their trademark flashing amber lights. This could be a sign of a downed tree or flooding, but it generally marks a worker in the streets away from their vehicle. So please remember to look out for them while they’re looking out for you!

For non-emergencies call 650-688-6500
For emergencies dial 9-1-1


Shop with a Cop....

The Atherton Police Department participated in its very first Shop with a Cop Program last month. Children from local schools in Atherton were chosen by their teachers based on need as well as on good academic performance and attendance. The children got to spend the morning with an Atherton Police Officer shopping for holiday gifts for themselves and their families. The Police Activities League and the Atherton Police Officers Association provided the funding for the program.

Police Chief McCulley plans to make this an annual event and add a shop with a cop program in August to help families in need with back-to-school supplies and clothes.


Memorial - Sunday, Jan. 13, at 1pm

The Town of Atherton is holding a memorial for Kathy Hughes Anderson on Sunday, January 13, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm at the Pavilion in Holbrook-Palmer Park.  Kathy, who served as the Town Arborist for twenty-two years and retired in 2011, was beloved by many within our community for her generous and cheerful nature and ready availability to help provide special attention and care for all their trees.
We invite you to join us in honoring her life, which ended tragically in mid-December, leaving many stunned, saddened and in need of healing.  There will be an opportunity for those who knew her to share their memories of Kathy. 
In lieu of gifts, we welcome you to plant a tree in honor of Kathy, which you can do through a special memorial fund set up in Kathy’s name with the National Forest Foundation.
We hope you will take this opportunity to join together in honoring Kathy’s life and sharing memories of her and the special contribution she made to our community.


Thank You!

Happy New Year!

Thank You for being a part of Atherton Online.
