IRONMAN Vineman Triatholon this Saturday


The acquisition of the iconic Vineman Triatholon from IRONMAN marks many exciting changes for the race, its athletes and our community. The first of these is more participants, which gives the Town of Windsor and Sonoma County a fantastic opportunity to welcome, and introduce, guests from around the country and the world to this beautiful place we call home.
Because the race has been taking place in Windsor for many years, residents have become accustomed to the traffic considerations that occur throughout the race day. This year, the race route has changed, and while residents have been notified by mail, there is turn-by-turn instructions located on the IRONMAN website. Please look for the "Race Info" then click on "Course" and select "Turn-by-Turn Directions" near the bottom of the page.
The run route will include Keiser Park this year, which means the park will be closed to the public for the entire day on Saturday, July 30.
For more information about how IRONMAN positively impacts the communities in which they race, please visit their website.

Solid Waste Public Meetings - you are invited

The Town’s current contract with Windsor Refuse and Recycling for Town-wide franchised waste hauling services expires on September 30, 2017. In addition, the Town’s franchise agreements with debris box haulers Industrial Carting, Pacific Sanitation and Windsor Refuse & Recycling expire December 31, 2017. The voters of the Town of Windsor in 1996 adopted a ballot measure requiring waste management contracts to undergo the public bidding process, with a 10-year maximum contract term. The Town’s current franchise agreements have met this maximum term.

In preparation for the bidding process for these franchised services, the Town of Windsor will be hosting two public meetings to discuss and receive community input on the Town’s waste management services, Assembly Bill 939 and other State recycling mandates, and residential and commercial solid waste program components and desirable service changes or enhancement.
The meetings will be held on the following dates and locations:

• Tuesday, July 19 at 6:00-8:00 p.m., Community Center, 901 Adele Avenue; and
• Wednesday, July 27 at 6:00-8:00 p.m., Town Council Chambers, 9291 Old Redwood Highway, Building 400.
Both meetings will cover the same information, and the Town welcomes public participation in these meetings.
