City of Monterey 29th Local Government in CA to Demand Smart Meter Halt
Opposition to Smart Meters Grows Nationally and Internationally
On March 1st, Monterey City Council unanimously adopted a resolution demanding Pacific Gas and Electric immediately halt the installation of Smart Meters and related infrastructure within city limits. The resolution reads:

"The City Council demands PG&E immediately halt the installation and activation of SmartMeters on any and all homes, apartments, condominiums, or businesses of any type, within the City of Monterey…until concerns regarding safety of the SmartMeter are addressed." Furthermore, "Council demands that PG&E… remove the existing SmartMeters from houses of residents who do not want them."

Monterey is the first city in Monterey County to take formal action against Smart meters, and joins 28 other cities, towns, and counties around California in taking action opposing them.
