City Programs Aid Residents
Escalon City Logo
E-waste recycling will be offered Saturday for Escalon residents.

Some fairly recent offerings through the City of Escalon are designed to help residents in a number of ways, from staying informed to being proactive to parking oversized vehicles.

At City Hall on McHenry Avenue, the city offers RV parking.

“They need to come into City Hall for the RV Parking and we will need them to complete a permit application, copy of current DMV registration, sign a release of liability form, complete the Preauthorized payment, copy proof of insurance and driver license,” said City Manager Tammy Alcantor.

The link to visit on the city website for more information on the parking available is: http://cityofescalon.org/government/departments/development_services/r_v___boat_storage.

The electronic sign, a gift to the City from the Escalon Lions Club, is available for advertising and promotion of community events. The sign is at the main intersection of Highway 120/McHenry Avenue/Escalon Avenue.

There is a form that needs to be filled out and it is on the city website, said Alcantor.

Cost is $125 for one month, $375 for three months, and $675 for six months.

“Ads are displayed in 10 second increments and will repeat every hour 15 times for a total of 360 times each 24 hour period,” Alcantor noted.

City officials are also issuing a reminder that both City Council and Planning Commission meetings are broadcast on the city’s YouTube channel which is available through the website. Residents that can’t attend the meetings can still view them, just by logging on at home.

“On the bottom section there is a red circle with a play button that is a link to YouTube, it is next to the Facebook symbol. Or you can go to YouTube and just search City of Escalon and our channel should come up” said Alcantor.

And, in a follow up to concerns voiced by councilman Ed Alves regarding the continuing low-flying aircraft over the city, Alcantor said the city has been provided with a new way of filing complaint.

The most efficient way to reach the FAA with your aircraft noise concern is to send an email to 9-AWP-noise@faa.gov with your full name, address, email address, and a brief description of your concern. Alternatively, you may call the FAA’s Western-Pacific Regional Office’s noise information line at (424) 405-8020.
