PARADISE, Calif. - In May, a federal judge ordered PG&E executives to tour the town of Paradise and on June 7, the visit happened in extreme secrecy.
CEO Bill Johnson, a handful of board members and executives spent the entire day in Paradise along with federal judge William Allsop, who ordered the company to tour the area.
The group reportedly met with Butte County Sheriff Kory Honea Thursday morning before having a meeting at the Town's performing arts center.
From there the group took a tour of the Feather River Hospital, which was severely damaged in the Camp Fire.
Members of the group said they could not comment or share their itinerary as part of the judge's order.
Paradise Town Council Members were not part of the tour and were asked not to be.
"I just honestly hope they take it seriously. I really hope at the end of the day they go home, they think about this and when they make decisions in the future they understand there's that balance between profitability and running a good company and being careless," said councilmember Michael Zuccolillo.
PG&E is still going through its bankruptcy process and could be on the hook for billions of dollars of damage they toured.
