Very soon the Ceres City Council may be talking about forming an adopt-a-park program in Ceres.
Councilwoman Linda Ryno expressed interest in placing the topic on an upcoming agenda. She also talked about groups adopting specific areas to keep clean “to get citizens involved in and maybe start cleaning up little sections ourselves rather than wait for the yearly ‘Love Ceres’ and whether or not it happens.”
Mayor Chris Vierra suggested the item be placed on the February goal setting workshop.
She also wants the council to talk about ways to bring Christmas into the downtown area “now that we have it nicely renovated.” Ryno remembers Christmas events being held in downtown back when she was an employee with the city Planning Department. She said it didn’t require like a big burden on staff time. She shared an idea to adorn the new trees down Fourth Street with white twinkling Christmas lights.
Ryno announced on Dec. 11 that she will be holding regular office hours from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on the first Tuesday of each month in the council office in the Ceres Community Center.
