With fire safety and criminal activity concerns at the forefront, Contra Costa County Supervisor Diane Burgis is set to host a public safety town hall for the Blackhawk community next Tuesday (Nov. 5).
At the town hall, Burgis will be joined by Contra Costa County Sheriff David Livingston and San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District Fire Chief Paige Meyer to address a variety of topics that will include PG&E's Public Safety Power Shutoff program and funding for local law enforcement services.
In Blackhawk, the Police Services Advisory Body, County Service Area P-2, Zone A (P2-A) members are appointed by the county supervisor to gauge the safety needs of the community and act as a liaison between community members and Supervisor Burgis.
Members of the body will be on hand to further explain their role and discuss their recommendation to the supervisor on raising the parcel tax for police services.
Police services in Blackhawk are provided by the Contra Costa County Sheriffâ€™s Office and funded through a parcel tax; advisory body members will explain why they believe raising this tax is in the best interest of the community.
The Blackhawk Public Safety Town Hall event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday (Nov. 5) in the Diablo Vista Middle School multipurpose room, 4100 Camino Tassajara in Danville. The event is free to attend and open to the public.
