PG&E Rate Case 2014-16

Printer-friendly version

At Monday evening’s City Council Meeting, under Mayor and Council Matters, Mayor Pro Tem Conway brought up PG&E’s General Rate Case 2014 – 2016.  With this rate case, PG&E is requesting funding for new investments and improved operations to achieve significant gains in the safety and reliability of its electric generation, and electric and gas distribution services, during the years 2014-2016.

PG&E is asking the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) for an increase in funding of $1.28 billion in 2014 over currently authorized levels.  PG&E asks for additional increases of about $500 million in 2015 and 2016 to account for additional infrastructure improvements, and increased costs of labor, materials, supplies and other expenses.  This equates to about an increase of $12/month on average for a residential home bill.  This possible increase will be tied in with distribution charges on your, so the more energy you use, the higher the rate increase.  Click here for more information.

Prior to voting on this rate case in the Fall, the CPUC is holding the first of 10 public hearings tonight at 7pm in San Bruno at the War Memorial Building (251 City Park Way, San Bruno).  There will be two public hearings in San Francisco tomorrow at 2pm and 7pm at the CPUC Courtroom (505 Van Ness Ave., SF).  The rest of the public hearings take place in the following locations:

San Francisco Bay Ferry, a service of the Water Emergency Transporation Authority (WETA), serves communities throughout the Bay Area with ferry terminals in the cities of South San Francisco, San Francisco, Alameda, Oakland, and Vallejo.  Their vessel network provides a unique transit option to destinations such as San Francisco's AT&T Park, Angel Island State Park, the San Francisco Ferry Building, San Francisco's Pier 39/Fisherman's Wharf area, Alameda Harbor Bay, Alameda Main Street, Oakland's Jack London Square, South San Francisco/Oyster Point, and the City of Vallejo (with connecting bus service to the Napa Valley Wine Train).

A two-day-a-week mid-day service was recently added to provide transportation to some of San Francisco’s most desirable waterfront destinations, including the Ferry Building, the new Exploratorium, Pier 39, Fisherman’s Wharf, and the historic streetcar line that runs along the Embarcadero. This limited, pilot service will serve the influx of travelers and visitors during the peak tourism season, in addition to South San Francisco residents and school groups who want to take advantage of a mid-week outing to the City – without the hassle of parking and traffic.

The fare is just $5.00 through August 30th, and children under 5 ride for free!

National Public Works Week

Printer-friendly version

"Because of Public Works..." is this year's theme for National Public Works Week.  The American Public Works Association selected it because it is about the quality of life brought to communities around the world.  We are able to have clean water, safe streets and neighborhoods, efficient traffic, and safe clean communities "Because of Public Works..."

This past Monday, the City Council recognized the Public Works Department for their outstanding service to the community, which oftentimes goes unnoticed (a telling sign they're doing a great job!).  All but four members of the Public Works Dept. were present, where the Council and Randy Breault, Director of Public Works, commended the team for the services performed for this community and maintaining the city's fundamental infrastructure.

Utility Team Leader Keegan Black and Non-Utility Interim Team Leader Joe Friars proudly accepted the signed Proclamation from Mayor Miller.

Don't wait until May 19 - 25 to say Thank You for the excellent service you're receiving from the Public Works Dept...take a moment to thank them today!
