Undergrounding – Letter to the PNN

Posted by Len Gilbert on April 14, 2009

PNN received the letter below regarding City undergrounding expenditures from neighbor George Childs.

I would agree that the city should not contribute to the underground district costs at this time. There is limited infrastructure benefit, the primary focus is aesthetics.

    Dear Len,

    I just checked on the City Council’s agenda for its meeting on Monday, April 20th. The item concerning the Piedmont Hills Underground Assessment District was missing. A call to the City Clerk’s office advised me that the matter has been put off until their May 4th meeting.
    I would appreciate it if you could advise your readers.

    Thank you,

    George Childs
