Great week here at the Chamber

This week was filled with many activities as Coalinga Police Chief Michael Salvador showed off the new CHUSD School Resource Officers Police car. It’s orange and black, and a great addition to making our schools safer here in Coalinga.

I also enjoyed a wonderful Chamber Quarterly Meeting hosted by the City of Coalinga which gave those in attendance an opportunity to ask questions. Marijuana concerns were the most addressed questions followed by sidewalks and information about the City transit and public assistance. The luncheon concluded with a tour of City Hall. Thank you City Manager, Marissa Trejo and all the department heads for making this another success.

Thank you Billingsley Tire for the safety check on our Derby trailer and securing it for the upcoming winter months. It is once again safe. I met with Sasser’s Specialties, helped West Hills Medical with a roofing recommendation, gathered information for our monthly newsletter, enjoyed a delicious dinner at Me-n-Ed’s, washed the car at Ice Bucket Chevron, filled the gas tank at Fastrip, and bought a dessert at Harris Ranch and Inn Country Store. Good things Coalinga.

As the school year approaches, please don’t forget to shop local first as the taxes collected benefit Coalinga, our hometown. If sales are good, then this keep people employed. Again good things Coalinga.

It has been discussed on Coalinga Citizens and once again, the green containers around town are causing confusion. Items put in these containers do not benefit Coalinga in any way. All the items collected within the green bins head straight out of town. If you want to make a donation of gently used clothing, household items, furniture and such, and benefit the youth and citizens of Coalinga, then please donate your items to Coalinga Community Thrift Shop Antique, Junktique, Practicals & Collectables located at 198 W. Forest Ave or Give Me Love Thrift Shop at 144 E. Durian Street. These two stores do amazing things for our community, so please support them and skip the green bins. Plus, your donation is tax deductible. Support local, it does the community good!
