Construction debris meeting
Construction of new buildings and demolition of old ones can mean exciting changes for the town, but they also produce a lot of waste. Now residents can learn more about how the local government addresses the bulky byproducts of development. On Thursday, Sept. 7, the West Valley Solid Waste Management Authority is holding an open board meeting to discuss its construction debris programs. Members of the public can attend in person at Monte Sereno City Hall or virtually via Zoom. To view the agenda and attend virtually, visit www.wvswma.org.
Storm drain proposals
Last month’s heavy rainfall in Southern California underscored the importance of strong, reliable local infrastructure. This month, the Town of Los Gatos is seeking proposals from engineers to map out the town’s storm drain system. Details on the project are available at www.LosGatosPlanRoom.com. Proposals are due Sept. 15.
