Point Richmond wigwag update
Author: danf

An important meeting is coming up on April 2nd and a good turnout is needed. This letter was sent out today by Richmond City Councilman Tom Butt:

-----------------------------------
About a month ago, representatives of the City, BNSF and the CPUC met at Assemblywoman Aroner's office in Richmond to discuss a resolution of the WigWag crisis.

It became apparent that a number of legal and procedural issues may turn on documents perhaps in possession of BNSF and the CPUC, as well as legal opinions by CPUC staff. CPUC staff stated that they needed about two weeks to complete their legal analysis. It was agreed that CPUC would complete their legal analysis and that both CPUC and BNSF would produce pertinent documents in their files. All material would be forwarded to Mayor Anderson's office for distribution to interested parties.

Currently, Mayor Anderson has told me that she has received nothing form anyone.

Meanwhile, the City Council is supposed to have on the March 19 Agenda a resolution to hold a public hearing on April 2 to consider adding the WigWag to the Richmond Historic Register.

PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO ANYBODY YOU KNOW WHO IS INTERESTED IN THE WIGWAGS.
