Bring your dogs and family to Menlo Park’s 3rd Annual Paws for Paws Walk

Posted on August 6, 2018 at 6:41 pm by Clay Curtin

On August 25, 2018, bring your furry four-legged friends and your family members to Menlo Park’s 3rd Annual Paws for Paws Walk at Burgess Park in Menlo Park. Paws for Paws benefits the Menlo Park Police Foundation and the Menlo Park Police Department K9 Unit. The fun begins at 8 a.m. and is a morning filled with activities and raffles. Attendees are invited to browse local pet vendors while their four-legged friends are spoiled with samples of dog treats. There will be K9 demonstrations by two of Menlo Park’s canines and their handlers. 

This is a free, family, pet-friendly event that includes face painting and activities for kids as well as food trucks. Veterinarians and pet vendors will be on hand to answer questions. There will also be a dog walk. Win one of our great raffle prizes by either purchasing raffle tickets or taking a lap around the park. Every lap you complete, you and your pup will receive another ticket! Event attendance is free, but entrance to the dog walk requires a ticket purchase. 

Purchase tickets in advance for $25 and get admission to the dog walk for a canine and four human family members. Tickets sold at the door are $30. All registrations include: a goodie bag, one raffle ticket and an event souvenir for your doggie.

Corporation Yard Emergency Supply Well – Contract Award for Phase 2

Posted on August 6, 2018 at 6:20 pm by Clay Curtin

Following the completion of Phase 1, which involved drilling a well at the Corporation Yard for emergency use, the contract for Phase 2 of the project is being awarded. Phase 2 involves the installation of pumping and disinfection equipment, as well as an emergency generator. Construction is anticipated to begin early in 2019 and last through the end of spring. Once commissioned, the well will provide an alternate source of water to customers in the Menlo Park Municipal Water service area that are located east of El Camino Real during emergencies. This will be the first of two to three wells that are planned to improve the reliability of the water system. Staff will notify the community of the construction start date via mailed postcard, newspaper advertisement and updates on the the Backup Supply Well #1 project webpage.
