Tonight: Woodside council considers budget, appeal in illegal tree-felling

The Woodside Town Council holds a public hearing tonight (June 24) on the budget for the 2014-15 fiscal year, which begins July 1. Council meetings begin at 7:30 p.m. and are held in Independence Hall at 2955 Woodside Road.

Principal focuses for the budget this year: the condition of storm drains, bridges and sewer infrastructure, and improvements on Woodside Road along the quarter mile between Canada Road and the elementary school.

Also on the agenda:

■ The council will consider an appeal by Woodside resident Michael Dorsey over the unpermitted felling of three significant bay laurel trees on Mr. Dorsey's property in the Family Farm neighborhood.

■ The council will consider a proposal from Pacific Gas & Electric Corp. seeking a 50-foot easement through Barkley Fields and Park to install a 24-inch gas pipeline. Construction would take four months, starting July 7, and playing fields would remain open for use. The town would receive $316,563 in compensation for the easement.
