Dear Members of the Board, County Counsel Health, County Administrative Office Palacios, Assemblymember Stone, Members of the Community and Media Representatives,
AS WE EXPECTED, PG&E has been served with a Notice of Violation of the Department of Forestry Exemption Permit regulations, by our San Mateo/Santa Cruz Area Chief and Forest Practices Inspector, Richard Sampson. This letter presents the egregious post-emergency tree removals as done illegally, with many severe violations of THP environmental and other regulations, including failure to contact property owners. CalFire Forester Sampson warns of the possibility for both civil and criminal penalties.
We feel that this is sufficient additional proof to that presented in our letter (below), that our local government – our County Board of Supervisors — should take immediate legal action against PG&E’s Enhanced Vegetation Management and file complaints to the CPUC and the Board of Forestry. May I humbly add that our State Legislature and our Governor need to hear from you as well.
