Measure S – The Basics

The content of this page was developed before and immediately after the November 2016 election at which Measure S was approved.  It will be retained as a library and shared reminder of the information on hand at that time to serve as a useful touchstone as we move forward.

A Town Hall meeting on how to specifically spend Measure S proceeds was held on March 22, 2017, with about 45 participants.  City staff is developing a Fiscal Year 2017-18 Budget that will include Measure S funds.

Fat, Oil & Grease Don’t Belong Down the Drain

Stop the FOGHoliday cooking can generate lots of tasty food, and left over fats, oils and grease, particularly if you are brave enough to fry a turkey. Fats, oils and grease (or F.O.G.) poured down a drain into the sewer system can significantly reduce the capacity of your sewer laterals and form into large plugs in public sewer mains that cause real problems.

Place your cooled F.O.G. items into sealed containers this holiday and put them into the residual trash container collected by Republic Services. If you have a large quantity, like from the turkey fryer, contact Republic Services directly for information on how to recycle it.

For more information on F.O.G. and how to safeguard your sewer system this holiday, please go to our Sewer F.O.G. resource page.

Kroc Center Exemplifies the Spirit of Solano

Spirit of Solano 2014We congratulate Capt. Jonathan Harvey and the entire Kroc Center team for being honored with the Spirit of Solano Award presented by the Fairfield-Suisun Chamber of Commerce.

Since opening in Suisun City, the Kroc Center and Capt. Harvey have made immeasurable contributions to the local community and the entire region, and we couldn’t be more proud to have them as a vital community partner.

Here’s how the Chamber of Commerce described the Kroc Center and Capt. Harvey:

It is no accident that there is a climbing wall by the reception area at the Salvation Army Kroc Center in Suisun City. It’s a strong message that anyone can scale the heights with just a little bit of help.

Thanks to the generosity of Joan Kroc, widow of McDonald’s owner Ray Kroc, many of those entering the Center will be able to get that help. Mrs. Kroc left the lion’s share of her multi-billion dollar estate to The Salvation Army to build life-transforming facilities across the country that would offer the finest of opportunities to those who need it the most.

Captain Jonathan Harvey, the Center’s administrator, is excited by all the possibilities Mrs. Kroc has given children and adults with her gift.  And he feels a sense of responsibility to make her dreams and the dreams of those who use it come true.

Because of the Suisun City Kroc Center, everyone has access to art, music, education, and recreation.  The Kroc Center have everything under one roof – you can swim, learn Spanish, take a fitness class, see a comedy show, play basketball or climb their rock wall.

The Salvation Army Kroc Center has demonstrated superb business practices, community involvement, and has shown to be a proven leader with our up and coming youth.  The Fairfield-Suisun Chamber of Commerce is proud to present the Spirit of Solano Award for Suisun City to Captain Jonathan Harvey.

The Kroc Center is located at 586 East Wigeon Way, Suisun City, 94585, adjacent to the Fire Station, Suisun City Library, Hall Park and Suisun Elementary School.

Urban Runoff Management Techniques

Creek and Marsh Watch

The cities of Fairfield, Suisun City and the Fairfield-Suisun Sewer District have joined together to form Creek and Marsh Watch. These municipalities protect the local creeks and the Suisun Marsh.

The Suisun Marsh, just downstream from both Fairfield and Suisun City, is the largest contiguous brackish water marsh remaining on the West Coast. This enormous marsh is a critical part of the San Francisco Bay-Delta estuary ecosystem, encompassing 116,000 acres of tidal wetlands, and 30,000 acres of bays and sloughs.

Suisun Marsh is a critical nursery for endangered Delta smelt as well as multitudes of other native and introduced species. The Suisun Marsh is also a major stop-over point each year for 1.5 million migratory birds on the Pacific Flyway.

You live in a Watershed

Watershed is a land area that drains rain and other water into a creek, marsh, lake or bay. Rain and irrigation from lawns and gardens wash pollutants off surfaces like streets, sidewalks and driveways into our storm drains and creeks and out to the Bay without any treatment. It often is contaminated by pollutants that can be toxic to fish, wildlife and people.

You may live miles away from the Bay and still be polluting its waters

Residents and small businesses are the leading causes of local stormwater pollution, and have become the primary threats to the Marsh and Bay. Pollutants that get into storm drains because of our daily choices and activities can end up in our local waterways. You may be polluting the Marsh and Bay without realizing it.

Pollution comes from everyday activities

Here are a few suggestions how you can help prevent stormwater pollution

  • Motor oil and auto fluids. If you change your own oil, recycle it, or take it to a household hazardous waste collection program.
  • Soap and dirt from washing cars in the driveway or street. Go to a commercial car wash, or wash cars on a lawn or dirt surface and empty your bucket of soapy water into a sink or toilet.
  • Antifreeze, oil, paint, or houshold cleaners. Rinse latex paint tools in a sink, not outdoors. Also, clean up toxic spills like motor oil, paint, and antifreeze with an absorbent material and dispose of soiled absorbent properly.
  • Dirt, leaves and lawn clippings that clog storm drains and choke creeks. Rake or sweep to clean up outside. Compost leaves and yard clippings, or recycle them.
  • Weed killers, fertilizers and pesticides that are washed off lawns. Use “green gardening methods such as conserving water, planting native plants, protecting the soil and reducing the use of toxic pesticides. Adjust your sprinklers or irrigation systems to prevent over watering.
  • Littering and grime that collects on parking lots and sidewalks. Use a broom, not a hose to clean up ouside. Use “green building” materials and practices, such as previous paving, for your next project.
  • Pet waste left on lawns, streets, in the gutter or on sidewalks. Pick it up and put it in a trash can.
