I will be meeting with representatives of Ralphs in the coming weeks to further discuss their future plans.

| TIPS TO IDENTIFY A UTILITY WORKER |
Recently, suspects posed as utility workers to distract residents while a partner or partners burglarized the victim's home. If you have been a victim of this ruse or need police assistance, please call police dispatch at 9-1-1 or (562) 435-6711.
A few tips to identify a utility worker include:
Utility employees are identifiable by their uniform and are required, upon request, to show an official identification card Customer contact is made either in person by a uniformed employee or through a form that is left in a prominent location on the property. The form provides a contact number to inquire about the work scheduled or to reschedule the work at a more convenient time
Corix Utilities reads all water and gas meters in the City of Long Beach. Corix meter readers wear a Corix ID badge and khaki colored uniforms with a bright yellow safety vest
If you have any doubt, call the appropriate department to verify the legitimacy of the employee

| Qualified applicants are now eligible to receive $3.00 per square foot of grass removed, or up to $3,000 total per project |
The Long Beach Board of Water Commissioners voted unanimously to increase the amount of funding that Long Beach residents and businesses are eligible to receive for replacing their grass lawns with California-Friendly landscapes through the Long Beach Water Department’s Lawn to Garden (L2G) Program.
New applicants to the L2G Program will now receive $3.00 per square foot of grass lawn removed, up from the previous funding level of $2.50 per square foot. The program funds the first 1,000 square feet of lawn removed for each project, meaning that customers who apply for the full incentive amount will receive $3,000 to defray many of the costs associated with removing a grass lawn and installing a drought-tolerant landscape in its place.
For customers that are interested in drought-tolerant landscaping and the L2G program and who want to see how these landscapes look up close, the Water Department will be hosting its second annual Long Beach Lawn to Garden Tour on Saturday, May 18th from 10AM to 2PM. Over 30 homes that completed projects through the L2G Program will be on display throughout the city. The tour is free and open to the public. To RSVP for the tour, or to apply for the L2G Program, please visit www.lblawntogarden.com.
