Act Now To Prevent Higher Water Rates!
Monday June 8th is your last day to act if you want to oppose an increase in water rates. Your protest must be filed with the City Clerk before 6 PM.
On this Monday, Ventura City Council will decide on whether to adopt the Ventura Water report , written by the Ventura Water General Manger, Shana Epstein. Click the Report Button to read the full report.
She proposes to raise your water rates. If you use more that 6 HCF in any billing period you will pay more. If you use over 21 HCF, which is the average residential use in Ventura then will pay a lot more. This new rate is intended to coerce compliance.
Today we have enough water to meet the needs of our community. Nobody questions the need for all citizens to make an effort to conserve now against potential future water shortages but most however question the need for our City to adopt coercive and punitive measures.
This community will come together to meet this challenge, but never under the lash of government. If you wish to protest click on the protest icon.
