Council File number 10-0475

"The Greater Valley Glen Council (GVGC) opposes an electric rate hike. At a time of economic crisis, unemployment and residential foreclosures, all tax, fee and rate increases should be avoided by the city and DWP.

The General Manager of the DWP did not mention any rate hikes or wage increases when presenting the 2010-2011 budget to the DWP-MOU Committee. Input from Neighborhood Councils and the DWP-MOU Committee should be considered before any increases are made.
