Benicia City Council Meeting
Please mark your calendars for the City Council meeting Tuesday, March 5, at 6pm. The Council’s ISO Subcommittee Members Kari Birdseye and Terry Scott, along with Fire Chief Josh Chadwick, will present a status report on the development of an ISO - and we need your help in the form of your presence, a supportive letter, or a Zoom public comment. If you can’t come to City Hall in person, you can attend virtually HERE (the yellow highlighted link, upper left). More information coming soon.
We are concerned citizens who are interested in keeping Benicia safer and healthier by adopting an Industrial Safety Ordinance (ISO). We support the adoption of the Benicia Industrial Safety and Health Ordinance (BISHO) that would help prevent accidents, allow us to receive more complete and timelier information, hold local industries accountable, and give our City a "seat at the table," in line with all other Bay Area Communities with refineries.
The BISHO working group recognizes that we are all busy and overstretched, but you can make a positive impact on our work with just a few clicks. Even agreeing to be an anonymous supporter can make a huge difference in the BISHO movement.
Please fill out the form. There, you can sign up for our mailing list so you can be receive the occasional update on major developments. All levels of engagement are deeply welcome.
