Briefs: Dumbarton transit station on Menlo Park council agenda

Menlo Park's City Council will gather on Tuesday, Nov. 1, to decide where to put the future Dumbarton Transit Station.

The selection is part of the project's environmental impact review. City staff has suggested placing the station either at Facebook, near the corner of Willow Road and the Bayfront Expressway, or off Hamilton Avenue in the Menlo Science and Technology Park.

Before that happens, though, the council will meet in closed session at 6 p.m. with labor negotiators working on contracts with the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) and unrepresented city management staff.

The regular meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the council chambers at the Civic Center at 701 Laurel St.

Shred those secrets

Free document shredding comes to Menlo Park on Saturday, Nov. 5. In addition to files to shred, residents can also drop off old electronic items and up to five fluorescent light bulbs. Documents are limited to three 10" x 12" x 15" boxes per vehicle, according to city staff.

The shredding takes place at 333 Burgess Drive from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. You must bring proof of Menlo Park residency such as a utility bill or driver's license. Businesses must show a business card or license.

SamTrans workshop

It's that time again — SamTrans is thinking about changing its bus service, and would like to know what you think.

The agency will hold a workshop in Menlo Park on Monday, Nov. 7, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the senior center at 100 Terminal Ave. SamTrans will present three scenarios with reduced service on some of its 48 routes and increased service on others for your consideration.
