Good evening, San Gabriel

We hope to see you at tomorrow's Dumpling & Beer Fest at the Mission District for a fun night with dumplings and local breweries. The event runs from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. New to this year’s event are a “paint and sip” activity and game area featuring ping-pong, giant Jenga, corn hole, giant Connect Four and more.

Have a bulky item? The City is also hosting a bulky item and electronic waste clean-up event on October 13 from 8:00 a.m to 12:00 p.m. at the Public Works yard. This is a great way to safely dispose of any large items that you may have in your household.

Now, here's what's making news for the week of October 3, 2018:
City Council approves satellite station at Marshall School
In a unanimous vote, the City Council approved a San Gabriel Police Department satellite station at the former site of Marshall School. The satellite station will increase police engagement in the south side of the City, housing Traffic Bureau staff with full service, traffic-related capabilities.

You can read more about this and other items in our summary of the October 2 City Council meeting.
