Smart Meters

On November 15, the City Council passed Reso. No. 425
(http://nyccouncil.info/issues/intros_act.cfm?intro=Res%200425%2D2006),
which calls "upon the Public Service Commission to allow individual
apartments to access real-time energy pricing through the use of smart
meters." Council Member Brewer was the prime sponsor of this legislation.

The following is a link to a Gotham Gazette article on the above
resolution and the use of smart meters to conserve energy.

Broadband Advisory Committee

In December 2005, with Council Member Gale Brewer as the prime
sponsor, the New York City Council passed Int. No. 625-2005, now Local
Law 126
(http://nyccouncil.info/issues/intros_act.cfm?intro=Int%200625%2D2005),
to establish a Broadband Advisory Committee. The committee will review
the ways and methods of using municipal resources to accelerate the
build-out of current, any emerging or newly developed broadband
technologies and other advanced telecommunications and information
services, such as cable, broadband over power lines, or wireless
technologies within the city of New York. The Committee will report its
findings and recommendations to the Mayor and the Speaker of the Council
as well as hold public hearings in each borough to educate the public.
Council Member Brewer and I have been working diligently with the
Speaker's office and the Mayor's office to appoint a diverse group of
qualified individuals to this Committee. We are working closely with
the Office of the Bronx Borough President to hold the first Advisory
Committee hearing in Bronx Borough Hall. The first meeting of the
Broadband Advisory Committee has been tentatively set for January or
February of 2007. Please stay tuned for forthcoming details.
