It is <br />extremely important to the community of Rancho Palos Verdes that we promote an open <br />discussion of the future of these facilities to keep the public educated. I have long fought for <br />safety of the citizens you represent as well as the ones I represent in San Pedro, and this <br />resolution will finally place us on the path to resolving this outstanding issue. <br />Just over one year ago, I spoke out in support of the EPA's decision to sue the owners of the <br />Rancho LPG Tanks for their repeated violations of federal law. This process of litigation <br />continues and I am committed to holding Rancho LPG fully accountable at the federal level. <br />However, the role of the RPV City Council is crucial to hold Rancho LPG accountable by all <br />local and state authorities. <br />Today the Rancho LPG facility is a potential safety hazard, but should we fail to act a hazard can <br />quickly escalate to a crisis. We have an opportunity and a responsibility to be proactive and <br />prevent a crisis occurring next to shops, homes, six soccer fields, and an elementary school. <br />Thank you for taking a stand today for the health of your residents. It is crucial that the Rancho <br />Palos Verdes City Council take the lead on this issue and approve a plan of action. The public <br />deserves a safe neighborhood and the right to be a part of the process. Please accept my support <br />for the resolution to preserve the health, welfare, and safety of the citizens and property owners <br />of the City of Rancho Palos Verdes, <br />Sincerely, <br />2a o I -PC Takk <br />Janice Hahn 55,2j>y�l( <br />Member of Congress <br />MADE A PARTOFT RECORD AT <br />4CIL MEETING OF <br />OFFICE OF THE CITY Ty <br />CARLA MORREALE, CITY CLERK <br />
