Plan on Foot to Save $15,000
Per Year on City Light
OAKLAND, May 22.—1f City Attorney
B. P. Woolner finds that the city can
enter into a contract with the Pacific
Gas and Electric company, ac recom
mended by F, C. Turner, commissioner
of public health And safety, the munici
pality will save $15,065 on the lighting:
bill for the coming fiscal year. The
competitive bide called for show that
tills corporation has named a price
over $15,000 lower than that of last
A bid* On district No. 5 wa.s entered
by the Central Oakland Light and
Power company and this bid was lower
than that of the Pacific company.
CJeorge, Tudhopp, assistant city elec
trician, actihg for City Electrician
George BaijcoeK during Babcock's ill
ness, filed the following report today
recommending that the contract be
given the Pacific, company:
"The Central Oakland Light and
Power company's bid is only for sec
tion 5 and covers only a small part
and a few of the methods required in
our specifications. There could be no
saving to the city-in accepting any
part of their bids. The Pacific. Gas and
Electric company's bids cover all sec
tions and methods required. Taking
the present lighting for the month end
ing April 30, 1912, I find that, the new
rate will amount to a saving in the
street lighting ftind alone of $1,122 10
a month, or $13,4(5.20 a year. About
$1,606 will be saved in the light, power
and gas furnished for public imildings
of the city. This is equivalent to a.
totareaving o< $15,065 a year, or about
10 per cent less than the old rate.
"I therefore recommend that the Pa
cific Gas and Electric company's pro
posal be accepted in its entirety. By
accepting it as a whole a change could
be made at any time during the period
of the contract without interference.
For instance, it might be desirable to
change in some of the districts to the
direct % current luminous arc lamps,
which give a much better light, or the
all night schedule may be changed."
Provisions of the charter require that
the city can not enter into a contract
until funds to defray tlie expenses in
volved are in the city treasury. The
funds in this case will not be available
until the next budget and tax rate have
been fixed, which will be at the and of
next month. Woolner is to report on
this within the next few days.
