Redwood Valley residents prioritize how to spend PG&E settlement
April 16, 2021 — Redwood Valley residents met with county supervisors this week to start on a wish list for community needs that could be funded with some of the $22 million settlement from PG&E. Suggestions ranged from new fire trucks to improvements on the grange, which served as a community hub during the 2017 firestorm. And, with roughly 200 agricultural water connections getting shut off in a few days, fire hydrants and water security were top of mind. The board has received the first formal presentations from entities making the case for some of the money, but has not laid out any parameters or priorities as to how the funds will be distributed.
