City of Newcastle Joins Dissenting Report on PSE’s Phony CAG Process

In what we hope will be the first of many such dissents, here is what the City of Newcastle has to say about the whole phony, PSE-rigged CAG process and Eastside Energy through its Community Development Director, Tim McHarg, who signed the CAG Dissenting Report on behalf of the city:

“The City of Newcastle supports PSE in its efforts to deliver reliable and cost effective solutions to the Eastside’s energy needs for existing and future residents and businesses.  However, the CAG process did not offer sufficient depth or breadth of data, analysis or alternatives to determine the best solutions to these needs.  If pursued, the resulting recommendation would have significant and irreparable impacts on homes and businesses along the routes and to our entire community, since both routes run through the middle of Newcastle.  Based on the information and process to date, city staff remain unconvinced that this is the only available option.  We encourage affected cities and the public to participate in the Environmental Impact Statement process for Energize Eastside to ensure a clear understanding of the nature of the problem and the impacts of feasible alternative solutions.”
