Cleanup from February 14 Mudslide Likely to Begin in Late July, Significant Impacts Expected

Clean up of debris from the February 14 mudslide in Sausalito's Hurricane Gulch neighborhood is expected to begin in late July 2019, according to an update presented to the City Council on May 28. The update was provided by David Bracken, the City's interim director of public works, and Eric Vaughan and Michael McCormick of Harris & Associates, an engineering and disaster recovery firm that is advising the City.

During the week of June 3, the City will post a notice inviting bids on a project to remove debris from the mudslide site. Respondents to the bid notice will have 30 days to submit a bid. The City Council then expects to award a contract to the lowest qualified bidder at its meeting on July 16. Debris removal should begin soon after the contract is signed.

Total costs to the City associated with the initial cleanup are expected to exceed $1 million. If the City complies with all regulations related to the cleanup, up to 93.75% of those costs could be covered by state and federal sources like the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the State of California Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES). Funds will be disbursed only after all cleanup work is completed and the City has been fully audited by funding sources.

Mudslide cleanup is likely to have significant impacts on the residents of Hurricane Gulch, including noise from machinery and traffic delays caused by trucks hauling debris. Among the decisions to be made by the City Council in July will be the allowed hours for cleanup. Work could proceed more quickly if the Council authorizes the operation of construction equipment outside of the hours allowed by the Sausalito Municipal Code (Monday to Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.), e.g. Monday to Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The interim director of public works estimates that the cleanup will take a minimum of 30 days.

Further updates about mudslide cleanup will appear on the February 14 mudslide page on the City website and in forthcoming editions of Sausalito Currents. When available, information will also be published about support from Harris & Associates for individuals affected by the mudslide who are seeking state and federal disaster assistance.

Any questions about debris removal at the mudslide site may be directed to Interim Director of Public Works David Bracken at (415) 289-4176 or dbracken@sausalito.gov.

Road Work on Caledonia Street
A map showing the planned closures on Caledonia Street on June 11 and 12
As part of the City's 2018 Streets Project, a City of Sausalito contractor will be microsurfacing Caledonia Street and Spencer Avenue during the week of June 10. Microsurface is a protective seal coat which extends the life of pavement.

Work on Spencer Avenue will take place from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Monday, June 10. On that day, Spencer between Prospect Avenue and the Highway 101 frontage road will be closed to all traffic. If you typically use Spencer to travel between Highway 101 and Sausalito, you will need to find an alternative route. If you live along this section of Spencer and plan to use your car on June 10, please depart from your driveway before 8:00 a.m. or find an alternative parking location for the night of Sunday, June 9.

Work on Caledonia Street will take place between Napa Street and Johnson Street. On Tuesday, June 11, the southbound lane of Caledonia will be closed. On Wednesday, June 12, the northbound lane will be closed. Work hours are 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Driveways exiting onto lane closures will not be accessible while construction is underway. Residents or users of those driveways will need to move their vehicles before 8:00 a.m. on June 11 for those on the west side of Caledonia and before 8:00 a.m. on June 12 for those on the east side. Caledonia's intersections with Napa and Johnson will remain open for the duration of the work, providing access to Bonita Street, which runs parallel to Caledonia.

At a future date, the contractor will return to restore pavement markings along the same segments of Caledonia Street and Spencer Avenue.

Please drive very carefully and watch for construction workers and signage in the vicinity of work areas. Any questions about these projects or other streets projects in Sausalito may be directed to Senior Civil Engineer Andrew Davidson at adavidson@sausalito.gov or (415) 289-4180.

VIPS

You can rest easier when you're on vacation knowing that you've arranged for the Sausalito Police Department's Volunteers in Public Safety (VIPS) to do a vacation house check while you're away. The VIPS are a group of dedicated volunteers who assist the police department in protecting the Sausalito community. Vacation house checks are just one of the many tasks they perform. There is no charge for the service.

When the VIPS conduct a vacation house check, they will visit your home and do the following:
  • Check for excessive mail, packages, and newspapers
  • Check if all accessible windows and doors are secure
  • Walk your property looking for anything suspicious
While conducting a vacation house check, VIPS wear an official VIPS uniform, carry an official VIPS identification card, and drive a marked VIPS patrol vehicle. If the VIPS notice anything out of the ordinary, it will be reported immediately to the Sausalito Police Department, and an officer will be dispatched to your home.

To request a vacation house check, please do one of the following:
  • Fill out the vacation house check online form on the police department website
  • Call the police department at (415) 289-4170 during regular office hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
  • Download, print, and fill out a paper copy of the form, then drop it off at the police department during office hours, fax it to (415) 289-4175, or scan and email it to dbarbour@sausalito.gov
There are currently 18 active members of the VIPS. Every member of the VIPS is a resident of Sausalito who has been screened by the police department. VIPS are also graduates of the Citizen's Police Academy.

Any questions about vacation house checks or the Volunteers in Public Safety may be directed to Lieutenant Stacie Gregory at (415) 289-4188 or sgregory@sausalito.gov.

Library Summer Reading Program for Kids Now Underway

Take Me to Your Reader
School is almost out, which means it's time for the Sausalito Public Library's annual Summer Reading Program.

At the center of the Summer Reading Program is the annual Summer Reading Challenge, which began on May 29. This year, there is a reading challenge for kids 11 and under, and a separate challenge for kids 12-14 years old. Reading challenge participants get a prize when they sign up at the Sausalito Library and then another prize when they've read for 12 hours. They also get a prize for completing four activities: going for a hike, coming to the library, painting or drawing a picture, and sending a letter or postcard.

Middle schoolers also get a prize for signing up for the reading challenge and then after 12 hours of reading, and they get another prize after reading for 20, 30, and 40 hours. They also have a Bingo board with challenges like reading a book published before 1970, watching a movie based on a book, and going for a hike.

This year's Summer Reading Program also features seven weeks of programs and events for kids, including magicians, book clubs, story times, cupcake decorating, aliens, movies, and more. Programs and events take place on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons from June 10 through July 26.

The Summer Reading Program is about more than fun. Researchers have found that kids lose reading skills during the summer months when they are out of school. The challenges, prizes, events, and performances create a dynamic relationship between the library and the children of Sausalito. A magic show may help to bring kids into the library, but our real goal is to send them home with an armload of books and a warm feeling about the library and lifelong learning.

The library's website has all the details about Summer Reading Program events, and the program will be the focus of the biweekly Sausalito Library children's services e-newsletter for the next two months. If you have questions about the Summer Reading Program, please contact Erin Wilson at (415) 289-4121 or ewilson@sausalito.gov. This year's "Take Me to Your Reader" logo was created by Ross K. Jones.

Things Happening in Our Community

Violin and Cello Concert. A few months ago, Lish, a member of the staff at Spaulding Marine Center, was going through the archives and found a trove of Myron Spaulding's old sheet music from when he played with the San Francisco Symphony. Lish called a concert violinist friend to come have a look, and soon the sound of violin was echoing through the boathouse. "Myron must have been good," the violinist said, "because this stuff is really hard." Thus was born the musical tribute to Myron Spaulding. On Friday, May 31 at 5:00 p.m., violinist Benjamin Bregmen and cellist Leo Baluk will perform several pieces from Myron's archives, selections of Bach, and a selection of music from the 1920s. Donations are appreciated to support our musicians. Spaulding Marine Center is located at 600 Gate 5 Road.
