Annual Coastal Clean Up at Dixon Lake
On Saturday, the Recycling & Waste Reduction Division sponsored the 33rd Annual Coastal Cleanup Day at Dixon Lake. It was one of the 100 sites countywide that received a cleanup supported by volunteers. We had exactly 100 volunteers show up at Dixon Lake, and they collected about 300 pounds of trash and recycling in just three hours!

Social Media Kudos to Escondido Police Officer
On Friday, September 14, a member of the Facebook group Escondido Friends observed an officer making an arrest at the Transit Station. Here is his comment. “Today at 6:00pm I watched an Escondido police officer arrest a lady at the transit station. Want to give him a shout out (if I knew his name) for conducting himself to the utmost professional. Even with her being combative from the beginning he never lost his composure and handled the situation perfectly.” This Officer was Christopher Lokers. There were several follow-on posts commending all of our officers for the great work they do every day. We are proud of our Officers and the professional service they provide to our community.
