  • Navy Water Main Break:  A Navy water main in the 100 block of B Avenue burst on Tuesday, January 30, causing flooding in the roadway and onto nearby First Street. The late afternoon flooding caused a sinkhole to form in the middle of the street, which remains closed until repairs are made. No damage to private property resulted from the flooding, which was kept under control by the area’s storm drains. The City, Navy and California American Water responded immediately. The Navy determined it was its line, secured the necessary valves and commenced cleanup operations. First and A Avenue are open to traffic. The Navy requested that their contractor be permitted to work on repairs to the water main and damaged pavement on a 24-hour-a-day schedule. The City has agreed to permit around-the-clock operations for the first 48 hours; then nighttime operations will be reassessed. The City’s and the Navy’s objective is to make repairs and reopen the roadway as soon as possible. Complete restoration could take up to 10 days. Area residents may see lights and hear construction noise during the repairs. The City appreciates your patience.
  • Active Transportation Plan Public Workshop: The City will host the third public workshop from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, February 7, to review the proposed projects and programs for the Active Transportation Plan. The meeting will be held in the Library’s Winn Room. There is still time to participate in the online questionnaire for the Active Transportation Plan. To take the questionnaire, click here.
  • Bicycle Theft Arrests: On Friday, January 26, officers arrested a man on charges that he stole the Police Department’s remotely monitored bicycle. Police found the suspect with the department’s  bicycle, wire cutters and another bicycle that had been locked up several blocks away from where the City’s bike was locked. He was transported to San Diego Central Jail and charged with grand theft and possession of stolen property. A second man was arrested on Wednesday, January 31, at 6:12 a.m. on the same charges after he was found in possession of the City-owned remotely monitored bicycle. He also was taken to San Diego County Jail. The Police Department has made more than 80 arrests since the remotely monitored bicycle program started 3 1/2 years ago.
