Greetings, all. It’s Fourth Friday tonight. If you’re not at the football game in Dixon, hope to see you downtown!
Don’t Miss Out!
- Yolo County Library and its Friends are sponsoring a classic car show in Yolo, 5 minutes north of Woodland, on Saturday, August 27, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
- The Carnitas Festival is September 24! The organizing committee is looking for cooks who want to participate in the carnitas competition and vendors for the festival. The festival is co-sponsored by the Winters Hispanic Advisory Committee and Winters Community Corazón. For more information, please click here. The deadline to participate as a cook is August 30.
- Pop with a Cop is Sunday, September 4th at City Park, 12 p.m. – 2 p.m. Come out and meet our local officers and enjoy a popsicle.
- The Fairfield Inn is getting ready to open this fall! And they are hiring for all positions. Applications and walk-in interviews are available every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Fairfield Inn & Suites in Woodland, 2100 Freeway Drive.
- Yolo County Housing will accept online applications for the Housing Choice Voucher Program and Project Based Voucher Programs. If you or someone you know needs housing assistance, please visit https://www.ych.ca.gov/. The application period closes September 7 at 5 p.m.
- Yolo County Resource Conservation District & Office of Emergency Services has been working on developing a Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP). The collaborative and strategic plan is designed to identify and mitigate fire risk. A community workshop to gather input for the West Yolo County area is scheduled for September 14 at 6:30 p.m. in Guinda at the Grange Hall. Future workshops will be scheduled closer to Winters. For more information, click here.
- Timed parking enforcement will begin again in the downtown area. Please be aware of time zones and other restriction, such as handicap parking and EV charging.
- PG&E is just about done with the work along Newt’s Expressway. AT&T will need to pull their wire through the new conduit next and Wave will need to remove their wire as they decided to discontinue service for that block. Anyone who has wave on that side of Main Street adjacent to Newt’s Expressway should select another provider. Once that work is done, AT&T will remove the poles. We’ll share the schedule for this remaining work once we have it.
- PG&E has been flying helicopters to inspect lines today and will finish tomorrow, in case you were wondering who was flying around in the countryside…
- New drought regulations require that institutions turn off irrigation to turf areas, which the City has done around City Hall and the Community Center. Bubblers are still on for the trees. For water conservation information , please visit Save Our Water.
Please note we have several outbreaks of COVID in higher density housing with communal spaces. COVID is still here in the community, spreading and highly contagious. There are free test kits outside City Hall’s side door and free masks in the library. Free testing is also available through the School District. If you have a runny nose, bad head aches or allergy like symptoms, please test. COVID may not knock everyone flat, but it could be more harmful to immune compromised, the elderly or others with underlying health conditions. If positive, please isolate away from others and follow health guidelines here.
Upcoming Council Meeting
The next meeting is September 6, hybrid.
