The City Council has established a new Neighborhood Watch Annual Grant to help launch and/or sustain Neighborhood Watch groups. Each Neighborhood Watch group now has the opportunity to receive one annual grant of up to $300. Grants will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until funding runs out. Neighborhoods can decide how they would like to use the money. Examples of how the grant may be used include annual block parties, flyers, or informational materials. The primary goal of the new grant program is to help keep Neighborhood Watch groups organized and engaged for years to come. For further details or to apply for funding, view the grant agreement.|
On December 15, 2016 the Saratoga City Council unanimously appointed Emily Lo as Mayor and Mary-Lynne Bernald as Vice Mayor. During the meeting, re-elected Council Members Manny Cappello and Howard Miller took the Oath of Office and officially started their new terms on the City Council. Outgoing Mayor Manny Cappello was also recognized for his service and leadership over the past year.|
Congratulations to all!
