Sandbags are available to pick up at the Public Works service yard at 1400 Broadway after rain begins.

Q: I’m planning to attend the State of the City address at City Hall next Monday at 7 p.m. Where should I park?

A: Redwood City’s website features a parking page with information about downtown garages and lots, including those close to City Hall (1017 Middlefield Road). The page also shows a labeled map for easy reference.

The City Hall lot and the two Library lots across the street on Middlefield all provide free parking to the public after 6 p.m. on weekdays, and are recommended to visitors attending State of the City. Other nearby options include the Jefferson garage and the Crossing 900 garage.

Q: Does the Redwood City website have information about open jobs at the City? How do I apply for a job with the City?

A: Redwood City’s Human Resources Division maintains a webpage with current employment opportunities. The listings are updated frequently with new jobs, so check back often!

Be sure to check the individual listing for any job you’re interested in, because many openings close after the receipt of 100 applications.

The City also uses CalOpps to accept applications for most jobs. To view open positions on CalOpps, visit their website and choose “Redwood City” as the member agency. If you register for an account on Calopps, you can receive automatic notifications whenever a job is posted!
