Winter Storm Update

PG&E’s North Bay Division, which serves Marin and Napa Counties, is preparing for a significant winter storm overnight and into Saturday.
The weather is expected to cause more sustained outages due to low and mid elevation snowfall, breezy to gusty winds, and isolated thunderstorms. Snow is expected to accumulate in some uncommon locations, including sea level locations along the North Coast, Lake County, and East Bay Hills. Gusts of 30 – 40 mph are expected with peak gusts in the interior valleys in the 40 – 50 mph range

Regrowing Grass in Kay Park

Beginning on March 1st, our contractors will begin the process of reseeding Kay Park. For safety reasons due to the equipment being used and the work involved, we will need to close Kay Park on March 1st for two days. Kay Park will reopen on March 3rd with a temporary chain link fence around the large dirt/grass area. The area will be fenced for upwards of 60 days to allow the grass an opportunity to get established without being disturbed. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time. 
Now Accepting Applications for the Parks and Recreation Commission

We are pleased to announce that applications are being accepted for the newly formed Parks and Recreation Commission that replaces the Parks and Recreation Advisory Commission. Want to help make life in Tam Valley even more fun? Consider joining this Commission.
