Community Input Needed

HALF MOON BAY, CA - The City of Half Moon Bay currently contracts with Republic Services for collection of garbage, recycling, and green waste, disposal and processing of collected materials, and street sweeping. This contract expires on December 31, 2017.

A Request for Proposals (RFP) for the successor contract is expected to be released to potential service providers in early 2017. As part of this process, the City is asking for input from community members about their needs, interests, and concerns regarding future garbage, recycling, and green waste services, which will be integrated as the RFP is being developed.

A community information meeting was held on October 20 at which the City gathered a lot of valuable information from participants. All members of the community are invited to provide input on this issue via an online survey (also available in Spanish):



The survey is also accessible from the City's website at hmbcity.com on the Hot Topics menu.

The survey deadline is December 1, and community members are encouraged to participate and let the City know what they'd like to see in the next contract for garbage, recycling, and green waste management services.

Temporary Closure of City Hall Starts October 17

City Hall to Close for Much-Needed Renovation
Temporary Site at Emergency Operations Center

HALF MOON BAY, CA - City Hall, located at 501 Main Street, will soon be temporarily closing in order to make significant improvements to the interior of the two-story building, providing for a more efficient, safe, and customer-friendly office layout. During this closure, City Hall staff will be operating out of the Emergency Operations Center (EOC), 537 Kelly Avenue.

The City Hall closure begins on Monday, October 17, and the building is expected to reopen by the end of November. The improvements will provide for an ADA accessible public counter, a secure space for records management, and more efficient work space for City staff. Recently, the City has filled several vacant positions and has a number of contractors working on capital improvement projects for Half Moon Bay, all of which required that the City also lease additional office space to serve as a permanent Annex to City Hall.

The City’s Finance and Administrative Services departments have already made the permanent move to the Annex (507B, Purissima Street), along with the City Clerk’s department (which will move back to City Hall after the improvements are complete). Other City departments are in the process of moving into their temporary offices at the EOC. Community members who have business with the City in the areas of Building, Planning, Engineering, and City Manager, can do so by visiting the EOC.

Since there will be significant work at the EOC to install computers and workspaces on Monday and Tuesday, it is preferable that any visits take place on Wednesday or later. All phone numbers for City staff remain the same.

The existing work layout conditions at City Hall were inadequate, with less-than-safe use of hallways and common areas for storage, the public counter was not accessible, a conference room converted to temporary offices, and several staff without regular assigned desks/workstations. Among other enhancements, the new layout of the interior of City Hall will offer improved customer service, including upgraded access to the front counter for the disabled. With the changes, City staff will be able to operate in a much more efficient manner by maximizing the available space with a well thought-out design for cubicles and offices.

The City appreciates the patience and understanding of community members during this temporary closure and relocation of City Hall, and looks forward to providing enhanced service to the people of Half Moon Bay once the improvements are completed.

Located 28 miles south of San Francisco, the City of Half Moon Bay is a community of about 11,500 people, situated on the peninsula between forested hills and some of the most beautiful coastlines that California has to offer.
