No longer just the ‘916,’ Sacramento gets a new area code: ‘279’

Kevin JohnsonThe area code overlay we approved  February 9, 2017 will allow all customers to keep their current phone numbers, including their area code,” said Commissioner Liane M. Randolph. “What this does is add an area code, 279, to the same region now served by the 916.

“In September 2017, customers requesting new phone numbers may be assigned the new 279 area code.”

That means a change for all Sacramento-area residents. People will have to dial a “1” first when making calls to and from those area two codes, according to the PUC. That new dialing process will start in August, but will not be mandatory until February 2018.

The 916 area code was created in 1947 as one of the original three area codes in California.

The area code serves parts of El Dorado, Solano, Sutter, Yolo, Placer, and Sacramento counties.

For more information on the 916 area code, go to www.cpuc.ca.gov/916areacode.

Roseville Water customers can get FREE mulch

1351 Elverta rdOn May 21st from 9:00 am-Noon Roseville City Water customers can get free mulch.  This free event is designed to help local residents get their landscapes and yards ready for the hot days of summer. Mulch slows evaporation, moderates soil temperature and even controls weeds. As it breaks down, mulch also adds helpful nutrients to the soil.  It is estimated that residents can save 30 gallons of water for every 1,000 square feet just by adding two to three inches of organic mulch (e.g., leaves and wood chips) around trees and plants.

Bring your shovels, containers and tarps to cover and a method to haul away the mulch, and they’ll give you free mulch!

Limit 1 yard per customer (enough to fill a pickup truck), available for City of Roseville residents only. First-come, first-served until supplies are gone.

This event takes place at the Placer County Fair Grounds, Lot B, 800 All American City Blvd. Roseville’s event is made possible in part by the donation of mulch from Mallard Creek.
