Successful City Town Hall Meeting -- The first-of-its-kind City Town Hall meeting occurred on Thursday evening, August 30th.  Over 40 residents heard the Mayor's State of the City Address, and had the opportunity to ask questions.  The Mayor spoke about the City's improving financial situation, transit issues, i-GATE, and the power of one individual volunteer.  The Mayor and staff also clarified some facts about BART to Livermore, the Regional Theater, and library services via audience questions.  Marc

New Livermore Fire Engine--  At 26 years of age and 145,000 miles, a fire engine is past its prime.  So, the Livermore/Pleasanton Fire Department purchased a new engine for the City.  The new engine, pictured here, cost $500,000, and will reside at Fire Station 9 on Cordoba Street.  The old one will be donated to the Las Positas College Fire Service Technology Program.  If you'd like a chance to see this shiny, new vehicle, come to the City Council Chambers, 3575 Pacific Avenue, on Monday, September 10th at 6:30 pm.  Don't forget to bring the kids!
