April 1, 2019 (Lemon Grove) –  This week’s Lemon Grove Buzz has the scoop on a new community garden, city council previews, a Sheriff open house, a county health alert, and Lemon Grove school news.  

Lemon Grove’s new community garden is now open thanks to Thrive Lemon Grove, CHIP (Community Health Improvement Partners) and Kaiser Permanente's Lemon Grove HEAL (Healthy Eating Active Living) Zone, and many individuals. Get more info on Facebook at Lemon Grove Community Garden https://www.facebook.com/lemongrovecommunitygarden/Instagram @LemonGroveGrows https://web.stagram.com/lemongrovegrows and Twitter @LGCommunityGarden https://twitter.com/hashtag/lgcommunitygarden.

City Council meeting preview:  This coming Tuesday, April 2nd, the Lemon Grove City Council will discuss and likely approve two Lemon Grove Sanitation District items: Amendment to the Fiscal Year 2017-18 Sewer Capital Improvement Project Budget, and the San Altos Slope Restoration Project.

Molly Brennan, Finance Director recommends the full Council ratify a list of payment demands and made the list public and on the City's website in plain view. Brennan's cover page says no fiscal impact, so this may be a formality.

Also in the consent calendar is a proclamation declaring April 2019 as arts, cultural and creativity month, from City Manager Lydia Romero.

After everyone else gets to go home, the Council will get to stay for private session to discuss three pending items.

Hantavirus warning:  With Hantavirus found in 3 rural mice, now is a good time to remind you how to clean up dead mice, rat droppings and nests. Use a wet cleaning method. Wear disposable gloves. Spray with a 10% bleach solution, let stand 15 minutes, clean up with a sponge or mop and double-bag the remains, your sponge and gloves.
