Climate Emergency – NO. MORE. GAS! – 7/15/2019

Climate Emergency – NO. MORE. GAS! – 7/15/2019

July 15, 2019 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm at 721 Barton Springs Rd, Austin, TX 78704

There is a rumor afoot that Austin Energy is seriously considering a new gas plant, possibly at the Decker site. Calling all “Shirts” to show up for the Electric Utility Commission meeting and demand that AE go on the record confirming or denying that rumor.

EUC commissioner (and former 350 Austin divestment team lead), Stefan Wray is intending to push City Council to declare a Climate Emergency. Whether this item makes the EUC agenda, we can help build support for this effort.

You must be there on time to sign up to speak at citizens communication. If you have a Close Fayette or 350 Austin shirt, please wear it. Yes, making a 6 pm meeting in Austin traffic is a pain, but it is much less of a drag if you take the bus!

The agenda, when ready, will be posted here: http://austintexas.gov/cityclerk/boards_commissions/meetings/27_1.htm
