Happy Holidays! I hope you, too, have the opportunity to celebrate, relax and spend time with family and friends this season.  City Hall will be closed both Tuesday and Wednesday, Dec. 24th and 25th as well as Tuesday, Dec. 31 and Wednesday, Jan. 1st.  The items below again highlight activities that support, connect and keep people safe.  In the end, it is all about community, isn't it?  Best Wishes for 2014!Marc

Habitat for Humanity Project --The Livermore Community is presently restoring a home at 457 Andrews Street through Habitat for Humanity.  The home will be sold to a Veteran's family from Livermore sometime this spring. On December 7th, a City of Livermore employee team demolished walls, dismantled part of the roof, and scraped flooring from the bathroom.  If you would like to volunteer as an individual or with a group, contact Frances Reisner in the City's Housing and Human Services Division at 960-4582 or

Buy and Shop Local --Do you shop at a local farmer's market?  Did you participate in Small Business Saturday?  Then you are already buying local.  Such purchasing decisions help keep money flowing around the community -- and keeps the Livermore economy healthy.  Shopping at chain or big-box stores in the City contributes to our sales tax base, too. Make your holiday gift-giving dollars count even more by shopping in Livermore.

Shopping Safety --The holiday season is a time of good cheer -- and thefts!  The Livermore Police Department reminds residents to pay attention to your surroundings.  Don't be distracted with packages and cell phones.  Also, don't set your purse down while shopping.  Always keep it close.  Keep all packages in the trunk of your car or hidden from view.  For packages via online shopping, schedule their arrival at a time when you are home, make arrangements with a neighbor to receive them, or have them held at the delivery facility for later pick up.  Stay safe!
