Effective immediately, and until rescinded, dine–in restaurants within the City of Montclair will be allowed to temporarily create or expand al fresco (outdoor) dining areas notwithstanding any preexisting limitations imposed under the Montclair Municipal Code.
This City of Montclair Community Guidance is based on provisions of Dine–In Restaurants Guidance issued by the California Department of Public Health updated on Thursday, July 2, 2020 and Guidance on Closures of Sectors in Response to Covid–19 by Governor Newsom and the California Department of Public Health published on July 1, 2020.
In efforts to provide more testing opportunities for San Bernardino County residents, community testing events are being held throughout the county. At these testing events, samples are collected by inserting a swab up the nostril or into the mouth to the throat. These samples are then sent to a laboratory for COVID-19 testing. Events are free of charge and do not require health insurance.
ATTENTION MONTCLAIR BUSINESSES
On May 14, 2020, the County of San Bernardino launched the COVID-Compliant Business Partnership Program to support local small businesses and help ensure ongoing compliance with State and County health orders and direction.
The NPDES (National Pollution Discharge Elimination System) is a program mandated by the Clean Water Act of 1990, which prohibits the discharge of pollutants to waters of the United States. Stormdrains dump untreated stormwater runoff directly into streams, rivers, and detention basins, and eventually discharge to the ocean. This means oils, grass, weeds, paint, pesticides, and other materials washed into the street eventually find their way into our drinking water.
Montclair oversees a program that includes both public education and enforcement of regulations to ensure that our potable and recreational waters are safe for us and future generations.
The NPDES program includes review of Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPPs) and Water Quality Management Plans (WQMPs), and the City's L-ocal Implementation Plan (LIP). Questions or comments regarding any of thes-e programs may be directed to the Public Works Department, Monday through Thursday from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at (909) 625-9470.
