It is United Against Hate Week! The City of Pinole has events planned to show support:

Today, the Pinole City Council will announce a proclamation for UAHW during the City Council Meeting.
Thursday at 10:30am at the Pinole Library, a guest officer from the Pinole Police Department will read "We Are All Welcome" during family storytime.
On Friday, the City of Pinole will host an event in Fernandez Park at 4:30pm.
This week, communities across California have planned peaceful actions such as screenings, art projects, and more to show their support for standing up against hate. We hope that you will join us for one or more of the events we have planned!

Our Clean & Green sustainability upgrade project gives a chance to get out the big trucks!!🚜

We’re clearing the way and prepping for a new, additional Equalization Basin. These (huge) basins allow us to hold water so our systems don’t get overloaded during excessive rain.

Now, send some rain! ☔️
