Will LA Residents Have to Pay More for Water and Power?

Hosted by

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.
