The State

December 22, 1987

The San Francisco city Public Utilities Commission approved a new 27 1/2-year contract with Pacific Gas & Electric Co. for distribution of hydroelectric power generated at the city-owned Hetch Hetchy reservoir. The commission approved a package of interconnected contracts despite an impassioned plea by Supervisor Richard Hongisto, who said the pact would bar the city from municipalizing Hetch Hetchy power, most of which is sold to two cities near Yosemite National Park, where the reservoir is located. Commission members, unswayed by Hongisto's warnings, voted 4 to 0 in favor of the deal, which has already been endorsed by lame-duck Mayor Dianne Feinstein.
