Title
Chief Administrative Office, Facilities Division, recommending the Board:
1) Make a finding that the attached license agreements granted to Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) are in the public interest and will not substantially conflict or interfere with the County's use of the property (Gov. Code 25526.6); and

Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
PG&E has reached out to the County with the desire to partner in connection with a Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) event. The attached license agreements allow PG&E use of the parking areas at Pioneer Park and at the Placerville Library to establish and operate a customer resource center (CRC) in the case of a PSPS event. PG&E will contact the County prior to using either of these sites to confirm availability. There is no financial value with these license agreements. The term of the agreements is for two years from June 1, 2020 thru June 1, 2022.

The Department is recommending that the Board find that these license agreements are in the public interest due to the valuable service offered to the public in the event of a Public Safety Power Shutdown and that the agreements will not substantially conflict with the County's use of the property. Both locations are in parking areas that will not substantially interfere with the County's use of the properties.

ALTERNATIVES
The Board could not approve the agreements and PG&E would be unable to open a CRC at these sites.
