Dear Public Disclosure Department,  

 

Regarding this request for public disclosure, when I ask for “items”, I am asking for any correspondence, letters, research, studies reports, writings, emails, recordings, easements, agreements, memos, notes, or documents of any kind, whether in printed or electronic form, and whether in your possession or under your control.

 

When we refer to analog meters, we are referring to the electromechanical meters which have been installed on Seattle buildings for many decades, and which provide a path to ground, robust surge protection, and all metal inflammability.

 

When I refer to “you” I am referring to all executive and staff of Seattle City Light, the current Seattle mayor and previous mayors, the Seattle City Council, and all Seattle staff.

 

∞∞∞∞

 

Regarding our property located at 123 East Main Street, hereinafter referred to as the “property”:

 

1. Please send us any and all items which grant to Seattle City Light or any other utility an easement to install, maintain, service, read, and/or replace electric meters.

 

2. Please send us any and all items which grant to Seattle City Light an easement to replace a meter which includes a built-in path to ground and install an electric meter which does not include a path to ground.

 

3. Please send us any and all items which grant to Seattle City Light the right to replace an electric meter which includes built-in and robust surge protection and replace it with a meter which includes puny surge protection.

 

4. Please send us any and all items which grant to Seattle City Light the right to replace an analog electric meter which cannot be hacked with a meter which can be hacked.

 

5. Please send us any and all items which grant to Seattle City Light the right to replace an analog electric meter which is all metal and cannot catch fire with a meter which is not all metal and which can catch fire.

 

6. Please send us any and all items which grant to Seattle City Light the right to replace an analog electric meter which does not collect personal and private information on our electrical activity with one which does collect personal and private information on our electrical activity.

 

7. Please send us any and all items which grant to Seattle City Light the right to replace an analog electric meter which uses only a minute amount of energy to measure usage with an electronic meter which must consume electricity to operate and which therefore raises electricity bills.

 

8. Please send us any and all items which grant to Seattle City Light the right to sell personal and private information collected through an electric meter.

 

9. Please send us any and all items which grant to Seattle City Light the right to replace an analog electric meter which does not produce stray current with one which does produce stray current.

 

10. Please send us any and all items which grant to Seattle City Light the right to replace a totalizing, analog electric meter which accurately measures watt hours used with a meter which estimates watt hours used by averaging voltage and amperage peaks.

 

∞∞∞∞

 

We request that any fees for providing the items requested be waived, given that obtaining responses to these requests apply to our personal residence.

 

In the event that you are unwilling to waive fees for providing the items requested, you should inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling our request. We would prefer that responses not be sent in paper format but instead that be sent by e-mail attachment, by posting to a Dropbox account, or some similar account, or by mailing me a CD-ROM.

 

We look forward to receiving your responses to these requests within five business days, as the statute requires.

 

If there are requests which will take more than five business days for you to respond to, then you should respond to those requests for which you have responses readily available, and regarding those requests which will require more than five days to respond to, please identify those requests and give an estimated time when you may be able to respond.

 

∞∞∞∞

 

[If an advanced meter has not yet been installed, use this paragraph]

 

Until you have provided complete and accurate responses to all the above requests for production, we hereby demand that you refrain from removing the analog meter currently on our property with an electronic meter of any kind.

 

[If an advanced meter has already been installed, use this paragraph]

 

Until you have provided complete and accurate responses to all the above requests for production, we hereby demand that you remove any electronic meters you have placed on our property and return the analog meter which was there previously.

 

∞∞∞∞

 

The offer made by Seattle City Light to replace our existing analog meters with so-called advanced meters is an offer under the Uniform Commercial Code of Washington. We reject this offer. If Seattle City Light has already replaced or at sometime in the future replaces our analog meters with a so-called advanced meter, it will do so or has done so, such placement is void under the doctrine of lawful offer and acceptance under the UCC. This is because an offer which is not rejected may be considered accepted. We do not accept. If an advanced meter will be placed on our building or has already been placed, we demand its replacement with analog meters.

 

Sincerely,

 

Kim and Kelly Smith

 

 

Sincerely,
