Weekend Shredding Event at SMaRT Station a Big Hit!

The SMaRT Station held the third of four quarterly shredding events on August 28 for the cities of Sunnyvale, Mountain View and Palo Alto. The event was put on to help people reduce their risk of identity theft and keep recyclable paper out of the landfill. It is clear that residents of the three cities have figured out what a great no-charge service this is, because they came out in droves! The car count was 631 with 456 coming from Sunnyvale. Over 17 tons of paper was collected in four trucks, a 56 percent increase over the first event held in January. Residents waited in line for no more than 20 minutes and were very pleased with the event. SMaRT Station staff, Cintas drivers, and Sunnyvale volunteers did a great job of keeping things running smoothly. The next event will be held December 18, from 8 – 11 a.m. at the SMaRT Station.

PUBLIC SAFETY

Marijuana Grow Fires up Apartment Complex

On August 16 at 8:05 a.m., DPS personnel responded to a report of a structure fire on San Juan Drive.  Upon arrival at the six-unit apartment complex, personnel discovered two apartments fully engulfed in fire.  Crews were able to contain the fire to the two apartments.  The other four apartments and adjacent apartment complex did not suffer any damage.  A total of seven apparatus and 34 personnel were involved in the firefighting operation.

There were no injuries as a result of the fire.  The residents of the two involved apartments were provided housing by Red Cross.  The investigators found that the fire started as a result of the resident illegally adding electrical wiring to support a marijuana growing operation. The damage estimate has not been determined.

State of the City Event

Visitors to the City’s Web site can now watch the 2010 State of the City celebration online. The full one-hour program, taped during the July 4 event at Washington Park, is broken into two half-hour videos, which are available at http://StateOfTheCity.inSunnyvale.com .  No special software is required to view the videos, which are hosted by Vimeo.com.

City Fleet Replacements

With the consolidation of user divisions, the City has reduced its fleet size from 540 units to 522 units.  This reduction will provide a 20-year cost savings to the fleet replacement budget of over $540,000.  All fleet vehicles are on a programmed replacement schedule based on life expectancy.  Frequently these life expectancies are extended as the units are still operationally sound.  This year there were 108 units scheduled for replacement based on each unit's life expectancy.  However, after assessing each unit, the number of units to actually be replaced was reduced to 45 vehicles, resulting in additional cost savings in FY 2010/11.
