SAN BRUNO, Calif. (AP) – Some survivors of the gas pipeline explosion that rocked a San Bruno neighborhood are frustrated that the city has not distributed about $380,000 in private donations.
Two city council members charged with coming up with a plan for the money say they want to make sure it’s used to cover expenses not covered by Pacific Gas & Electric or insurance companies. They’re exploring the idea of a victims’ memorial.
Eight people died in the September blast. City Manager Connie Jackson says the number of homes considered destroyed was recently increased from 35 to 38.
Jackson told the San Mateo County Times that any decisions on the donations probably won’t be made until next month.
The delay has angered some residents who think the extra cash could help families during the holidays.
