Clarification on Water Quality Notice

The City recently sent its water customers a State mandated notice in the mail that gave some customers the impression the City’s drinking water did not meet water quality standards—that is not accurate. The Santa Fe Springs Water Utility Authority is required to monitor your drinking water for lead and copper on a regular basis. During 2019, we did not collect three of the required 30 lead and copper samples during the June 1 to September 30 monitoring period; three of the required lead and copper samples were collected late, in October 2019. At no time was the water quality impaired or in question.

The collected samples show we are meeting drinking water standards. This sampling effort is required by the State of California, and is being accomplished through the cooperation of homeowners and residents. Unlike other contaminant monitoring, the samples for lead and copper testing must come from regularly used cold water taps inside customers’ homes, thus the City relies on the residents to collect and return water samples in a timely manner. The notice letter that was sent to each customer had confusing language that was required by the State of California and could not be amended in any way. Sorry for the confusion and it is hoped that this clarification is helpful in illustrating that your drinking water has always met water quality standards

Parking Vehicles in Parkways

The City of Santa Fe Springs would like to remind residents that parking vehicles on City parkways is never permitted; this includes scheduled street sweeping days.

Pursuant to Municipal Codes 72.03 and 72.50, vehicles are prohibited from being parked in "parkways" at any time. The parkway is defined as the area between the curb line and the adjacent private property line; this includes all properties, with or without sidewalks.

The parkway is designed to create a safe space for pedestrians to walk, as well as to provide an accessible work space for Public Works and other utility maintenance. When vehicles are parked in the parkway, pedestrian access is often reduced or blocked, and may endanger the safety of pedestrians including those who may be utilizing wheelchairs, pushing strollers, and elderly or children walking to and from school. Additionally, when access is blocked, emergency and/or scheduled repairs and maintenance efforts may be hindered.

As a courtesy to our residents, enforcement of these municipal codes shall resume January 1, 2020. Residents are reminded to ensure compliance of all parking restrictions set forth in the City's municipal code. For additional information, contact the Police Services Center at 409-1850.

Tips for Safeguarding Your Home This Summer

With summer comes vacation time, which is why it's especially crucial to safeguard your home. In order to minimize the chance of a home burglary and protect material possessions and personal information, here are some tips to practice:

Tip #1: Burglars love unlocked or open windows which signal that an alarm system is not activated. Make sure all doors and windows are secure before leaving your house.

Tip #2: Never ignore a knock on the door! Burglars will knock on doors and if there is no answer, they will usually kick in the front door or enter through the back door. Do not open the door, but let it be known that someone is home.

Tip #3: Set up the illusion of a routine and occupancy by using light timers. However, keeping lights on constantly is a dead giveaway that you are out of town.

Tip #4: Alarm systems are effective and posting company alarm signs and window decals are compelling deterrent for burglars.

Tip #5: Use home alarm system technology with visible cameras and video doorbells. These can serve as a deterrent.

Tip #6: Be a good neighbor and watch out for other neighbor’s homes. Establishing a trusting bond will help other neighbors return the favor if you ask when you are away.

Water Conservation Tips from the Department of Water Resources

In an effort to address California's drought, the City reminds residents of how important it is to preserve this precious resource and offers the following tips (from the Department of Water Resources) to conserve water:

1. Stop leaks! Check water using appliances for leaks. Replace your old toilet, the largest water user inside your home.

2. Replace your clothes washer, the second largest water user in your home. Star™ rated washers with a Water Factor at or lower than 9.5, use 35-50% less water per load.

3. Run water only when using it, not while brushing teeth or shaving, and keep showers short.

4. Use a broom instead of a hose to clean your sidewalk or driveway.

5. Plant the right plants with proper landscape design and irrigation. Select plants that are appropriate for your local climate conditions.

6. Adjust sprinklers so only your landscaping is watered and not the sidewalk or street.

7. Minimize evaporation by watering during early morning hours, when temperatures are cooler and winds lighter.

8. Water only what your plants need. You can install a weather adjusting Evapotranspiration irrigation controller that automatically saves water by only watering when necessary. Check with your local water provider to inquire if ET controllers work in your area.

Do one thing each day that will save water. Remember, every drop counts!

City Council Appoints Laurie Rios To Fill Vacant Seat

On July 31st, the Santa Fe Springs City Council unanimously voted to appoint community member Laurie Rios, to fill the Council seat left vacant by former Councilmember Joe Serrano. Rather than conduct a special election to fill the vacant seat, the Council elected to appoint Mrs. Rios to serve the remainder of his four-year term, which expires in December of 2015. By appointing a Councilmember versus holding a special election, the City Council saved approximately $60,000.

Mrs. Rios was serving as a Planning Commissioner, in which she served for the past 20 years. She is an active member of this community and has been involved in a variety of City committees for over 40 years, including the Family and Human Services Advisory Committee (served 43 years, Chairperson for the last 21 years), Sister City Committee (for the past 21 years), and the Heritage Arts Advisory Committee (for 20 years). She is a member of the Little Lake Educational Advancement Foundation (LLEAF), and previously served as a Board Trustee for the Little Lake City School District Board.

She has lived in Santa Fe Springs since 1957 and is a retired employee of the Little Lake City School District, where she was employed at Jersey Avenue School for 26 years. She has been married to Albert Rios for 61 years and is the mother of three children, grandmother to nine grandchildren, and great-grandmother to three grandchildren, including twins. She is happy to join the City Council and looks forward to serving her community. Laurie Rios was sworn at the August 7th City Council meeting.

Councilmember Serrano Announces Resignation

Councilmember Joe Serrano announced his intentions to resign his office, effective July 31, 2012, citing his desire to spare the City Council and Community any unwarranted distractions related to his legal woes. The charges being leveled against Mr. Serrano involve alleged bribes from an unpermitted Marijuana Dispensary and call for him to enter guilty pleas to Federal charges in August. It is important to note that neither the City nor any other City Councilmembers have been implicated in any wrongdoings. In fact, it is worthy of note that, since July of last year, the City Council has aggressively pursued the removal of unpermitted marijuana dispensaries from the City.

Whatever wrongdoings Mr. Serrano may have engaged in were not at all representative of the City or any other City officials, elected or otherwise. Government in Santa Fe Springs has been and remains clean and transparent. The City's commitment to open, honest and transparent government has not been dampened by these troubling turn of events. If anything, we will re-double our efforts to ensure that the alleged misdeeds of one person do not compromise the hard earned public trust in government.

Santa Fe Springs Recognized as Playful City USA

The City of Santa Fe Springs was recently recognized by KaBOOM!, a national non-profit dedicated to saving play, for increasing opportunities for play for children in the community. Presented by The Humana Foundation, Playful City USA is a national program advocating for local policies that increase play opportunities for children.

Santa Fe Springs is proud to be one of 213 cities and towns in the nation, to be recognized for these efforts. "Santa Fe Springs has long been known as the City of parks, and now we are proud to add the moniker of Playful City USA. Creating and maintaining a healthy community is one of our top priorities. The City goes to great lengths to ensure that the children of our community have access to parks, playgrounds and other recreation areas, which provides them opportunities to stay fit, healthy, and ready to learn." stated Santa Fe Springs Mayor Bill Rounds.

This designation supports the City's commitment in taking an active role in sustaining the healthy development of the children of Santa Fe Springs. The City encourages families in the community to take advantage of the many parks, green spaces, and playgrounds available for play, and make play a priority in their lives. Contact the City’s Parks and Recreation Services Division at 863-4896 for more information.


City Adjusts Utility Users Tax

Due to the extraordinary and historic fiscal crisis created by the State's decision to eliminate redevelopment, the City has taken action to adjust the Utility User’s Tax (UUT) from the current "phase-in" rate of three and one-half percent (3.5%) to its voter-approved maximum authority of five percent (5%). This action is necessary to help offset the $13.4 million of revenue that is lost through the elimination of redevelopment. Setting the UUT at 5% will provide the City with an additional $1.5 million of revenue, which will be dedicated to fund ongoing public infrastructure and other capital improvement projects. The adjusted 5% UUT rate will go into effect beginning July 1st.

The City’s action to adjust the UUT is one of several austerity measures taken to make up for the significant loss in revenue that redevelopment’s elimination has wrought. Other actions include cuts to programs and services, employee layoffs, and pension reform measures. Each component in and of itself won’t come close to curing our $13.4 problem, but collectively they provide a solid and balanced foundation for the City’s fiscal future.

Call City Hall at 562-868-0511, Ext. 7355 with any questions.
