Sections extracted from December 17, 2019 City Council Agenda Packet
1. Wireless Subcommittee Agenda Report
This is the Agenda Report recommending dissolution of the Wireless Subcommittee and passing the Wireless Ordinance on to Planning Commission for eventual passage.
2. Final Wireless Ordinance
This is the version forwarded to City Council, after final editing by City Staff and outside attorney Van Eaton of BB&K.
3. Encroachment Agenda Report
This is the Agenda Report that recommends approval without further public input or review of the Encroachment Ordinance.
4. Encroachment Ordinance
This is the 12/17/2019 Encroachment Ordinance draft.
As written here, the ordinance applies ONLY to communications utilities -- possibly only to wireless (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile), NOT to power (PG&E). Not sure if it applies to other utilities (Comcast, AT&T). If not, enforcement may be problematic, fire-hazard protection nil.
Where is the inspection & enforcement by anyone other than the utilities themselves? Not much of a record there.
Where is the process for handling resident reports & complaints?

3. Encroachment Ordinance Draft
This ordinance language was largely extracted from the working draft Wireless Ordinance on recommendation from outside attorney, to be moved to the Encroachment section of City code. Van Eaton made the recommendation -- and the Committee agreed -- in order to make aesthetic and safety provisions apply equally to all overhead utilities.
