Fire Reminds Us That Preparation is Key
Our thoughts go to the tens of thousands of area residents impacted by the Thomas Fire, which tore through neighboring cities destroying more than 1,000 structures. From Thousand Oaks, smoke dominated the horizon for weeks and flames dotted the hillsides, reminding us that disaster can strike anywhere. Take time to ensure you and your family are ready for the unexpected by visiting our website for information on how to prepare for an emergency, how to receive emergency alerts from the County, and where to find essential information during an emergency.
Mayor Andrew P. Fox Takes the Helm
On December 5, 2017, at our City's annual reorganization meeting, the City Council unanimously approved the appointment of Andrew P. Fox as Mayor and Rob McCoy as Mayor Pro Tem. The event also honored outgoing Mayor Claudia Bill-de la Peña, who will remain active on the Council.
The five-member Council nominates new leadership each year, selecting from among its members. The Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem serve a one-year term, taking effect immediately upon Council approval.
On January 20 at 2:00 p.m., My Father's Dragon will bring the stories of Ruth Stiles Gannett to life for children of all ages. Learn more, and check out the full slate of CAP performances by visiting www.civicartsplaza.com.
