EMERALD WANTS SDG&E DOLLARS TO FUND FIRE/RESCUE DEFICIENCIES

 

June 13, 2012 (San Diego) -- San Diego Gas and Electric has agreed to pay the City of San Diego $27 Million to settle a lawsuit over the 2007 wildfires.  Councilmember Marti Emerald is asking the Mayor to reinvest this cash windfall back into public safety. 
 
The councilmember recommends spending $18 million to design and build critically needed fire stations, citywide, as recommended last year in the Citygate Report on San Diego’s emergency preparedness.
