Although the fees for keeping analog utility meters are still under legal review, PG&E is threatening to terminate service to those who refuse to pay for opting out and paying the monthly fee.

Tom DeMarchi, a 68 year old Willits resident, has been told by PG&E that he must pay over $100 in past due fees or else he will have his electricity turned off. Tom lives in an all-electric house, but he is willing to live without it rather than submit to what he calls "PG&E's extortion."


PG&E requires customers to pay $75 initially and $10 a month to keep the analog meters, fees currently under evaluation by the California Public Utilities Commission. 

No PG&E employees have been to DeMarchi's home so far. He's promised to call KZYX if they do.



 

 

 

A preconstruction open house for the Willits Bypass project will take place next Tuesday, October 23, 2012.  The public is invited to attend from 5PM to 8PM at Willits City Hall.


 

The project was awarded to the partnership of DeSilva Gates Construction and Flatiron West Incorporated whose staff and Caltrans will be on hand to answer questions about the project, which, they say will relieve congestion, reduce delays, and improve safety for traffic and pedestrians along U.S. Route 101. 



 



The Ukiah City Council Wednesday approved the next step toward merging the Ukiah Fire Department and the Ukiah Valley Fire District by contracting with CALFIRE to do dispatching.

Two of the city's dispatchers will work out of Howard Forest CALFIRE dispatching center to route fire calls for the Ukiah Valley. The remaining eight dispatchers would continue to handle calls for the UPD and the FBPD.


The city's 10 dispatchers now route calls for the Ukiah Police Department, the UFD and the Fort Bragg Fire Department, while Cal Fire's Howard Forest Communications Center routes calls for the UVFD.




 

 

 

Instead of having its permit revoked, a Myrtletown medical marijuana collective has been given a 90 day chance to prove it's severed all ties with its previous director and can comply with stipulated conditions.

The collective failed to comply with the conditions of its permit, including driveway improvements and proving that it's a nonprofit operation. In addition, county staff identified certain areas of concern, including high payroll expenses, unexplained costs -- such as nearly $32,700 for supplies -- and nearly $9,800 in automobile expenses.

As part of the board's motion, the collective must complete driveway improvements, work with public works staff to create appropriate subtle signage, prove that the collective has severed all ties with its former director Bill Byron, and have a third-part y auditor review financial statements dating back to when the new owners took over.

Byron was arrested April 5 in Pennsylvania on suspicion of marijuana trafficking, conspiracy and related offenses. 



 

 

 

 

 
Willits will have a solar lighted bike locker facility located at the Skunk Train parking lot so that rural residents won't have to bicycle over crowded or dangerous roads and can use their bikes in town.


A locker open house will be held in conjunction with the Saturday OCT. 20th 10,000 Step Walk.

Bicyclists can lease a locker capable of housing two bikes for free but a $20 refundable key deposit is required.


 

The first completed bike locker lease application drawn from a pool will receive a FREE city bicycle donated by Jeff Warren, owner of the Bike Station. The second and third applications drawn will receive a certificates for a FREE professional tune up of their own bicycles.
