City Council’s second hearing on the Boston Gas Leaks Elimination Ordinance
In April City Councilor Matt O’Malley introduced the Gas Leaks Elimination Ordinance to prioritize gas leaks by risk and volume; allow for a real time and objective public monitoring of leaks; improve coordination between utility companies and the city during road work; and establish a six-year time frame for fixing any leak. Currently National Grid has little or no incentive to fix gas leaks because ratepayers pay for the lost gas. This legislation is aimed at stopping leaks and ending ratepayers’ footing the bill for wasted gas. Attend the hearing to learn more and show support for this ordinance. If you want to give testimony at the hearing, contact Councilor O’Malley at matthew.omalley@boston.gov.
When: Tuesday, July 12, 1 pm
Where: City Council Chamber, 5th Floor, Boston City Hall
