Although the Los Altos City Council has adopted a reach code ordinance requiring electric power in new construction, cooking appliances, above, and fireplaces are exempt and may be powered by gas.

Thirty-three members of the public spoke at the Los Altos City Council meeting Sept. 22 before the council voted to adopt a reach code ordinance. The topic has been a controversial issue in the city over the past year, though the reach codes only impact new construction.

On the Market: Proposition 19's impact on local homeowners

Proposition 19, the Property Tax Transfers, Exemptions, and Revenue for Wildfire Agencies and Counties Amendment, is a constitutional amendment on the ballot in California in the Nov. 3 election. It would allow homeowners ages 55 and older, those who are severely disabled or those whose homes were destroyed by wildfire or disaster to transfer their property-tax base from their departing home to a new home purchased anywhere in the state of California.
