City of Fremont Budget Hearings to Be Held in June

The City’s proposed operating budget for the next fiscal year, running from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021, will be presented to the City Council at the regularly scheduled Council meeting on May 12 at 7 p.m. The first public hearing to comment will be held on June 2, and the second hearing and adoption is on June 9. Both public hearings are part of the Council meeting and will begin at 7:00 pm.

Please note that the May 12, 2020 City Council meeting is being conducted utilizing teleconferencing and electronic means consistent with State of California Executive Order N-29-20 dated March 17, 2020, regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. The live stream of the meeting may be viewed on the City of Fremont’s website, which also provides a link to the live stream; or, on Comcast Channel 27.

Recreation Summer Update 

The City’s Recreation Services Division is moving forward with a revised 2020 Summer Camp program that will start July 6. The Recreation staff in Community Services has been working on hiring summer staff, developing expanded training modules and creating the COVID-19 Summer Safety Plan. Summer camps originally scheduled in June will be cancelled and staff will be reaching out to customers to confirm cancellations and issue refunds. As stated in the April 29, 2020 Alameda County Public Health Order, childcare establishments, summer camps and other educational or recreational institutions or programs providing care or supervision for children of all ages may resume operations, but must follow the most updated guidelines established by the Alameda County Public Health Department. City of Fremont Summer Camps will strictly adhere to the updated guidelines that are in place at the time the camp begins.  

The Recreation Services Camp Guide is in the process of being revised and will be completed and available online by June 1.

Other Recreation programs, classes, facility rentals and Aqua Adventure Waterpark operations will remain on hold until there are changes to the current Shelter in Place Order and gathering restrictions. Virtual recreation class options are being developed and those will be available soon.

Bulky Pickup Collection Resumes

For many Fremont families, time at home has resulted in several special clean-up projects. Republic Services customers with single-family accounts may now begin scheduling appointments for collection of bulky items and extra trash. As this service resumes, Republic Services has implemented enhanced safety procedures. Call 510-657-3500 for more information.

Frozen Meals Available to Order on a Weekly Basis through May for those 55+ 

Frozen meals are now available to order on a weekly basis for those 55+ from the Fremont Senior Center. The cost for five frozen meals is $20.

The chefs will be making meals that will include beef, chicken, and pork. While there will be no substitutions, vegetarian meals can be requested when placing your order.

The meals will be curbside pick-up each Thursday, beginning May 7, from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm in front of the Fremont Senior Center.

Payment can be made when you pick up with exact cash or a check made payable to the City of Fremont, or you can make arrangements to pay by credit card ahead of time.

To get more details and/or to place an order, please send email. In the email please include your name, a phone number, and how you want to pay. Lynn Hood from the Senior Center will email you to let you know your order was received.
