Report by PG&E:
Mr. Tom Guarino, Government Relations specialist at PG&E spoke about the high concern by the public of placement and safety of natural gas lines. Fremont is a high priority for inspection and necessary action due to pipeline traverse of earthquake faults. Information of gas lines is now available for a much larger radius from residences. Councilmember Harrison noted that not only should citizens be aware of natural gas lines but also highly volatile fuel lines that come through Fremont. Although most particulars of shut-off valves is confidential for security reasons, information is shared with Fremont Fire Department and Chief Bruce Martin agreed that FFD is kept informed and has confidence in PG&E personnel to control leaks if they should occur.
City Manager explained the impact of this proposition on the November ballot as a measure to prohibit the State from taking funds from local governments if they are used for transportation, redevelopment or local projects and services.
