Dear Residents,

As the weather reaches the triple digits, I wanted to share some information about cooling centers and splash parks located throughout our city. You will also find information about community events coming up soon. I want to thank everyone who participates in our city events and who share the resources found in the newsletters to friends and family.

Be on the lookout for future events and community meetings! If you have any concerns, questions or comments, please feel free to contact my office at (559) 621-7832 or
