• State Sen. Jerry Hill, D-San Mateo, introduced a bill Friday to require the California Public Utilities Commission to follow the same open meeting requirements that govern other state boards and commissions. His legislation was prompted by a March 2013 closed-door meeting in San Deigo with energy industry officials that the CPUC billed as an all-day “invitation-only” event in which participants could “offer policy suggestions or concerns directly to all five commissioners.” The commission denied a reporter access.
• South San Francisco invites the public to an informational meeting about the Grand Avenue Street Resurfacing Project 8 a.m.-9:30 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 27 at the former Ford Dealership, 315 Airport Blvd.
The public meeting will include a brief presentation about the Grand Avenue Street Resurfacing Project covering project description and schedules, and construction impact.
The project aims to increase the service life of streets, reduce major street maintenance operations and provide greater drivability for vehicles. The project is expected to begin late September or early October and will be administered in segments to avoid extended street closures.
