Good evening, San Gabriel

If you missed last night's informational coyote presentation, you may view a recording here along with information on how to address sightings.

In addition, if you'll be attending this year's Dumpling and Beer Festival on October 4, we encourage you to purchase your beer tasting wristbands now before September 14 to take advantage of early-bird pricing. More information on this sale can be found here.

Now, here's what's making news for the week of September 5, 2018:
City Council to support Piqui's Resolution
With the goal of making child safety a priority in the California State Legislature, the City Council approved a motion supporting Piqui’s Resolution (otherwise known as House Resolution 113). Piqui’s Resolution aims to make all court-related professionals trauma-informed and trained in recognizing, evaluating and understanding evidence surrounding domestic violence and child abuse.

You can read more about this and other items in our wrap-up of the September 4 City Council meeting.
