City Council Recap


Bakersfield City SealJust a few notes from last night’s Bakersfield City Council meeting.

Keep Bakersfield Beautiful

Mr. Paul Yanez, was voted in as the Ward 7 representative for the Keep Bakersfield Beautiful Committee.  Paul is a long time resident of  Ward 7 and volunteered to take the spot I vacated when took the Ward 7 Councilman seat.  Thank you for your service  and commitment to help improve our community!

Shop with a Cop

I thanked the BPD volunteers for both the “Shop with a Cop” that provides a police shopping partner with a child, along with other law enforcement officers and their families building Christmas food parcels for disadvantaged families. This is a perfect example of the commitment and positive interaction that our Bakersfield police officers have with the community.

Water Conservation

Finally, I thanked the citizens of Bakersfield for their approximate 20% water reduction for November over last years usage.  We are doing our part in conserving this valuable resource!
