Letter from the City Manager

Connecting Our Children

The “New Skate Park”, a perfect new recreational facility has met all expectations of the planners (our teens) and the Colton Community. A topic between youthful park-goers and City staff for many years has become a reality with the grand opening in October 2013.

Viewed as an example of partnership between the Council, Commission and Community, the effort was made to construct a state of the art facility. The Community Services staff anticipated a frenzied opening day that ensued from the neighborhood children connected to events surrounding the Gonzales Center. There would be no “Stop taking away our fun!” posters here. What a wonderful moment to realize that a site can be developed in this time of limited funds and concern over public liability. The City Council, City staff, and our connected kids worked to bring it all together. I want to personally thank the Community Services Department Director, Bill Smith, Recreation Staff and Volunteers for their hard work. I see many recreation firsts in the coming years. Through this leadership, a conscious organizational decision is being made to develop recreation sites with a range of characteristics intended to give kids the opportunity to establish a personal “Connection” to safe open and friendly oriented “Natural Play” locations. Watch for these in the coming years. Another first occurred just before the close of 2013 with the movement of the

City Manager Update

“Miller Honey Caboose” to the corner of Colton and E Streets. This new addition and retention of a piece of Colton History is being developed as an “Interactive” resource to provide local youth and residents with information about Colton Hub City “Train History”.

The City of Colton has been recognized as a “Train Town USA” community by Union Pacific. The Caboose is a new point of interest to provide for outdoor experience in a natural environment. This new setting will provide children with individual personal connection to our community history, and is in-keeping with the Community Services strategic goal of connecting children to the outdoors. Lastly, I want to acknowledge the participation of “Community” members in our many programs during the previous holiday season. Thank You for the many volunteers and City staff that worked through the Thanksgiving dinners provided, the Christmas Tree Lighting and Chamber of Commerce Parade. As your new City Manager, I am wonderfully surprised and overjoyed to learn about all of the Community involvement I see. I can truly say “City Wide – Colton Pride” is alive and well. Today many communities are still feeling the economic downturn and cannot see how to make the pieces of work and school, social activities, and season greeting come together.

Colton has connected all of the pieces and it shows every day. Stephen P. Compton, City Manager (909) 370-5051 Office • (909) 370-5183 Fax

Staff Spotlight Welcome to the Community Services Department "Staff Spotlight" where a different staff member is featured in each issue. These special staff members are recognized for their daily contributions to our department and for their commitment to the Colton Community.

For this edition of the Colton Chronicle’s “Staff Spotlight”, we take great pride in recognizing, Christine Juedes for her contributions to the community, to the City of Colton, and to the tens of thousands of patrons who visit the library annually. Christine’s commitment to serving the community is why the library is so valued by the community. Ms. Juedes began her service with the Colton Public Library just a few short years ago, but her time with us has been well spent. Christine is the driving force behind many of the library’s special events, programs, children’s services, and collection development. She works tirelessly to demonstrate exceptional service to library users of all ages and abilities. When Ms. Juedes is not providing children’s services, she can be found on the floor with library patrons providing assistance with the computers and locating library materials. She also serves as the library’s website editor and social media administrator. Christine is a valuable part of the library team. It is with great honor and pride that we recognize Christine Juedes as this issue’s spotlight employee. Christine, thank you for all that you do for the library and many thanks for making the library such a special place to visit!

• recycling one glass bottle saves enough energy to light a 100-watt bulb for four hours. materials in the green recycle cart (aluminum, tin, plastic, newspaper, cardboard and glass) must be kept clean in order to be recycled. Keep in mind, trash collected from the black cart does not get processed; therefore any recyclable materials placed inside the cart gets sent to the landfill. (See chart to the right to learn how long it takes for trash to decompose in the landfill.) Colton Recycles Mixed Waste 3 Yard Bin Collection Program makes it easy for residents living in apartments and condos to recycle. mixed waste is sorted using technology, but in order to recover recyclable materials from the waste stream we need the materials to be loose and dry. To do this, securely bag all wet waste generated in the kitchen and restroom, and place the rest of your waste loose inside the bin. This little extra effort will go a long way to significantly improving waste diversion in our community.

Donate goods instead of throwing them away. Spring cleaning is an excellent time of year to donate furniture and clothing.

if you host a party, set the table with cloth napkins and reusable dishes, glasses and silverware. Save and reuse party hats, decorations and favors.

Bring your own Bag when going to the mall or grocery store during the holidays. request a paper bag if you forget to bring your bags.
