Calling All Bargain Hunters – County Surplus Sale

Calling All Bargain Hunters – County Surplus Sale

On Thursday, September 26, search the bargain treasures at the County’s version of a garage sale. Likely it will be the largest and the best deals you have ever seen. Televisions, office furniture, cases of janitorial supplies, copy paper and office supplies are just some of the great items you will find from 8:30 a.m. – 3 p.m., at 9650 Goethe Road in Sacramento.

As the County streamlines operations, the items that are no longer needed are sent to County Surplus where these quarterly warehouse sales are hosted to keep the items from piling up.

Sheriffs Community Impact Program Honored with a Visit From Brazil!

The Sheriffs Community Impact Program (SCIP) of Sacramento County felt great honor to be visited by an eight-member delegation from Brazil, hosted by the Northern California World Trade Center.  The United States Department of State invited this delegation on a 3-week program to examine ‘volunteerism, the development of youth leadership skills and the role of youth in community-building activities’ in the United States.  The Northern California World Trade Center wished to connect the delegation from Brazil with SCIP to learn how the Sheriff’s Community Impact Program plays a key role in our Sheriff’s plan to reduce juvenile delinquency in Sacramento County ~ particularly the sports programs for at-risk-youth.  Brazil is interested in youth engagement through arts and sports as well as youth engagement through art and sports and disadvantaged youth programs.

Assembly Select Committee Pursues Revitalizing Established Communities

SACRAMENTO – Wednesday, August 28, Assemblyman Ken Cooley chaired the first hearing of the Assembly Select Committee on Community and Neighborhood Development. The ten member, bi-partisan committee heard from policy and administrative experts who spoke about the impacts of suburban sprawl on our metropolitan areas, and funding needs to help revitalize our aging communities.

“As metropolitan areas grow, it’s important that we do not forget about the needs of our older communities, and help keep them desirable places to live that can attract jobs and private sector investment,” said Cooley. “We moved to our neighborhood because we liked what was there. Now, some of our older areas are faced with quality of life challenges that stand as barriers to community revitalization.”
