Highlights: Sanctuary City on Council Agenda, Carpooling Incentives, Coastal Cleanup Day
Connect With Pacifica This Week
Greetings!

At Monday’s City Council meeting, the issue of whether or not Pacifica should declare itself a sanctuary city is on the agenda. This is a multi-faceted issue that has not only been of local concern but has also been the subject of national discussion. Input from the community on this matter would be especially valuable to the members of the City Council. The meeting begins at 7pm on September 11.

Here’s an opportunity - do you want to accumulate up to $1,000 in pocket money over the next year? You can (should a pilot program be implemented) by using the Scoop app for San Mateo County commuters. The app automatically links drivers and riders. Commuters receive a $2 incentive when commuting between 5:30-10:30am and 3:30-8pm on their Scoop account. That’s four bucks a day.  Check it out!

Please let me know if you have comments or questions, and  thank you for wanting to  Connect with Pacifica!

Best,
KEITH BRESKIN
Interim City Manager

  • Earn Incentives by Carpooling with the Scoop App - San Mateo County commuters are now eligible for up to $4 a day for carpooling using the Scoop app on their smartphones. The City/County Association of Governments (C/CAG) of San Mateo County is offering this limited-time incentive as part of its pilot Carpool in San Mateo County! program to encourage County residents or commuters who work in San Mateo County to utilize private sector carpools during peak travel periods.Under the new program, commuters will sign up for the Scoop app, which automatically links drivers and riders to other users who are as close as possible to their origins and destinations. Once they've registered with Scoop, commuters will receive a $2 incentive per person during commute periods (5:30-10:30 a.m. and 3:30-8 p.m.) on their Scoop account, with a maximum incentive of $4 a day. Take advantage of the Carpool in San Mateo County!  It’s fun and convenient. You can save time, save money, reduce stress, and meet new friends. It is also good for the environment.
