Tonight at the Crown Plaza Los Angeles Harbor, LA's Department of Water and Power is holding the last of a series of meetings designed to tell the rate-paying public why still more significant increases for both water and power are needed. A year ago, the Department threatened to withhold $73 million from the city's general fund if rates weren't increased as much as it wanted. It finally settled for a smaller increase, but an outraged City Council then persuaded voters to create a new Office of Public Accountability. Since then, the office has not been staffed, but the DWP has a new General Manager, Ron Nichols.
