Did you fry during the holidays? Maybe you enjoy deep-fried turkey. The City of Redlands has joined San Bernardino County’s Stormwater Program in urging residents to recycle leftover cooking oil at the City’s Household Hazardous Waste collection site and seven other facilities throughout the county as part of a recently launched Cooking Oil Recycling Campaign.

“Pouring cooking oil down the drain can cause clogged pipes and other sewer problems that can be costly to repair. Recycling cooking oil is not only good for the environment, but can also prevent the hassle of dealing with sewer issues and save you money,” said Terry Fritz, senior environmental compliance inspector for the City of Redlands.

Redlands Police cited 18 drivers during a crosswalk enforcement detail Thursday morning.

Two police officers and a community service officer conducted the crosswalk detail between 8 and 11 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 13, at three intersections – Cajon and Vine streets; Redlands Boulevard at Fifth Street; and Orange Street at Union Avenue. Drivers were cited for failure to yield to a pedestrian.

The City of Redlands recently implemented an Emergency Notification System which will be used to rapidly send telephone notifications to all residents and businesses within an affected area in the event of an emergency. Residents and businesses are urged to register cell phone and VoIP numbers to include in the emergency database.

Commonly referred to as “Reverse 911,” the system will automatically call listed and unlisted telephone numbers within the area affected by the emergency and deliver a recorded message. If the phone line is busy, the system will attempt to redial those telephone numbers to make contact. If an answering machine is reached, the emergency message will be left on the machine.

Cell phone or Voice over IP (VoIP) phone numbers are not currently included in the system database. If you wish to be contacted on your cell of VoIP phone, you must register these phone numbers online at http://www.cityofredlands.org/register.

Note that this service is offered for City of Redlands residents and businesses only.

A 49-year-old Redlands woman was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon after police responded to multiple reports in the area of Cero Court and Cook Street shortly before 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 12.

Police contacted the reporting party, Glynis Paulette Brooks, before locating the victim about a quarter mile from the location. The victim, a 34-year-old female family member, had suffered multiple stab wounds and was transported to an area hospital where she underwent surgery. None of the wounds were life-threatening.

Officers later determined that Brooks had stabbed the woman during an altercation. Brooks was taken into custody and booked at Central Detention Center in San Bernardino for assault with a deadly weapon. Bail was set at $50,000.

The City of Redlands is set to begin an $867,909 sewer replacement and repair project scheduled to begin this month with completion in early April.

The City Council awarded the contract to SND Construction, out of Arcadia, on Jan. 21, 2014, to repair or replace more than 15,500 linear feet of sewer pipeline. More than 11,500 linear feet of pipeline will be repaired using a “slip lining” technique that repairs the pipe in place without requiring street cuts.

Residents will be notified of the work seven days prior to the start of construction. Parking restrictions will be in place and minor traffic delays may occur but residents will have access to their properties at all times.

The Redlands Police Department is warning local businesses of a scam after three businesses reported being contacted by a caller fraudulently claiming to represent a utility company and attempting to collect money over the phone to avoid shutting off power to the business.

On Tuesday, Feb. 11, police received reports from three separate businesses saying they had received calls from a man claiming to represent “PGE” or “Newcastle Edison company.”

The caller claimed the businesses owed between $500 and nearly $1,500 on past due electricity bills and said the power would be shut off if the businesses didn’t pay immediately using a credit card or checking account number. None of the businesses paid.

Neither PGE nor Newcastle Edison are utility companies operating in Southern California.

Redlands City Council members will continue their Coffee with the Council community meetings this Saturday, Feb. 15, from 9 to 10:30 a.m. at Cuca’s Mexican Food with Council Member Pat Gilbreath.

As part of the City’s continuing efforts to increase interaction with residents and promote transparency in City affairs, the City Council began a monthly “Coffee With the Council” in February 2011.

The informal meetings are held from 9 to 10:30 a.m. on the third Saturday of each month, rotating among three local restaurants – Olive Avenue Market, 530 W. Olive Ave; Cuca’s Mexican Food, 1752 E. Lugonia Ave.; and Augie’s Coffee House, 113 N. Fifth St. Council members rotate attendance, with no more than two members at each meeting.

Mayor Pete Aguilar suggested the meetings as a way for residents to ask questions or share concerns with Council members outside the formal setting of a City Council meeting.

The remaining schedule for this year’s Coffee with the Council meetings is included below.

Free tax preparation assistance for low- and middle-income taxpayers, especially those ages 60 and older, is offered at Redlands’ two senior centers.

AARP Tax-Aide will be held at the Joslyn Senior Center, 21 Grant St., every Monday from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., now through April 14 and at the Redlands Community Senior Center, 111 W. Lugonia Ave., from noon to 5 p.m. on Wednesdays also through April 14.  AARP will accept only the first 20 people to be seen.

Join the Joslyn Senior Center on Thursday, Feb. 13 from 3 to 6 p.m. for an Evening of Hearts Dinner & Dance to celebrate Valentine’s Day with the one you love. 

Enjoy three full hours of entertainment and dancing provided by Dan Damon, along with a wonderful dinner provided by Thomas Catering which includes: lasagna, fruit salad, garden salad with garlic bread, and cheesecake for desert.

Prices are $12 with a Patron card; $14 without. 

Come learn to rumba and enjoy ballroom dance in a comfortable and fun setting. 

Rumba classes are taught from 6:45 to 8 p.m. every Monday through March 3.
