Attend Glendale City Council and LVMWD Board Meetings this Tuesday

23 Jan

Event alerts! 


GWP is not in sync with the CPUC and the rest of California! 

This Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2012, in Glendale, GWP is scheduled to present its unreasonable smart meter options — RF disabled or RF removed are the only choices it is supporting (analog is not on the list) —  and proposed high opt-out fees, as well as a unacceptable Resolution that they would like City Council to consider and support.

Read the Agenda for the Jan. 24, 2012, Glendale City Council Meeting, Page 2, Item 8c (at the pretty much very end of the meeting):

Read the GWP Staff Report and Resolution, especially starting from page 6:

After reading their Staff Report and Resolution– ask yourself  and others:

Why is GWP trying to rush this through?  Where are the analog options that the state Calif. Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) is now supporting for residents?   How can GWP propose smart meters (disabled or with the RF off) as options when thee meters still create dirty electricity due to problems with filtering (read EON articles about SMPS problem:  Why did GWP say all these months that it would wait to take the cue from the CPUC’s decision on smart meter options and now instead rush this through before the CPUC makes a final decision on smart meter options?  Why doesn’t GWP also wait to see what the CPUC says about smart  meter options at the CPUC’s February 1st meeting like BWP announced on January 17th, that it would do?  

Action You Can Take: If you oppose GWP’s smart meter options, recommendation and Resolution:

1) Attend Tuesday Jan. 24th, 2012, City Council meeting — Location: Council Chambers, 613 E. Broadway, 2nd Floor, Glendale, CA 91206.  Smart Meter options are at the end of the Agenda, so even though the meeting starts at 6pm, if you show up at 7 or 7:30 p.m., you should still be fine.  Share this meeting info with friends, family and colleagues and get them to show up and attend and speak up at this City Council meeting with you.

And also….very important:

2) Call and write Glendale City Council BEFORE Tuesday evening’s meeting about why you voted for the Mayor and City Council and why you want them to reject GWP’s smart meter program, options, recommendations,fees, and proposed Resolution — writing and calling must be done before Tuesday’s meeting, because GWP is doing a Presentation (versus a public hearing) and Public Comment for Presentations at Glendale City Council often comes AFTER the presentation, so points for the Mayor and City Council to consider and raise during the Presentation discussion should be sent to the Mayor and City Council BEFORE the meeting via e-mail or phone to hold our local officials accountable.

Here is some contact info in case you feel compelled to write or call, and if you don’t live or reside or visit or do business in Glendale, then make sure to relate what’s happening in your community or statewide regarding smart meters in contrast to what GWP is proposing, and how they should reject GWP’s smart meter program and current recommendations and resolution because they are discriminatory, unfair and prejudicial:

Call City Hall and call or leave phone messages for the Mayor, and each of the Council Members:

1-818-548-4000 City Hall
1-818.548.4844 City Management Services

Glendale Mayor Laura Friedman:

Council Member Rafi Manoukian:

Council Member Ara Najarian:

Council Member Frank Quintero:

Council Member Dave Weaver:

    Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
    losing a few months of hard work due to no backup. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?

    Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working
    with? I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m
    having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then
    most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
