Local Companies Get City Startup Support
The City recently approved two grants for Elk Grove startups, Core Impact ($20K) and Tiami Networks ($15K), from its Startup Elk Grove Incentive Program. Core Impact, is a sports specific wearables company that tracks muscle activity and provides real time actionable insights to help athletes optimize their training and in-game performance. Tiami Networks is a wireless technology startup that designs and builds next-generation 5G wireless networks for dual-use applications such as tactical networks and long-range broadband. With the City’s support, both companies will move their operations to InnoGrove, Elk Grove’s City supported tech-focused co-working space.
Congratulations to both of these up-and-coming businesses! To learn more about the Startup Elk Grove Incentive Program, visit investelkgrove.org or contact our Economic Development team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
|\Where the Rubber Meets the Recycling Bin|
Elk Grove residents have recycled more than 10,000 tires in the last three years (nice job!). Recycling tires conserves landfill space, converts materials into useful products, and it prevents the spread of diseases from rodents and mosquitoes that make a home in discarded old tires. Drop off your old tires during the Tire Recycling Event happening through Wednesday, April 5 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Special Waste Collection Center (9255 Disposal Lane).
Gather the family and enjoy an afternoon of fun on Saturday, April 15 at Family Fun Day from Noon to 4 p.m. at the Old Town Plaza. This free event organized by the Elk Grove Youth Commission will feature carnival games, music, activities, and more! Food will be available for purchase. Event details.

Drain After the Rain to Prevent Mosquitoes
All this rain is leaving behind a lot of stagnant water. As temperatures rise, spaces around the house will become the perfect breeding ground for mosquitoes. The Sacramento-Yolo Mosquito and Vector Control District reminds you to drain standing water from common sources like buckets, flowerpots, bird baths, old tires, and other small containers. Report any stagnant water, mosquito breeding problems or request a free home service inspection, call 1-800-429-1022 or fill out a service request online at fightthebite.net.
