Overt action needed to protest

By
From page A6 | February 08, 2013 |

Regarding the Proposition 218 water rate increase for property owners:

Homeowners and business owners, note: If you do not return the 218 water rate increase notice, you will be assumed to vote “yes” for the rate increase.

Renters: You will not receive a 218 water rate increase notice even though you will be affected by any rate increase, as your landlord will simply pass his or her rate increase on to you in the form of a rent increase.

Comments: If you are either a property owner or a renter, 218 is an unjust law. As an owner, you may be on a vacation or sick at a hospital and not see your 218 notice until after you have returned home — too late to vote “no” by returning the notice. As mentioned, if you are a renter, you are affected but have no say in the process.

Hopefully, one day this unjust law will be overturned by the courts.

However, until then, homeowners and businesses: Return your 218 notices once you have them in hand, if you do not want to agree to a water rate increase.
