San Diego responds to media reports that water department sitting on excess funds

Posted by George J Janczyn on February 22, 2012

U-T San Diego recently reprinted an Investigative Newsource story criticizing the Public Utilities Department use (or non-use) of money raised from rate hikes (Water rate hikes leave $630 million unused) and KPBS followed up with Public Utilities flush with cash but behind on projects.

Today the City responded with the following letter:

    Hi Jay: Read your letter and don’t like it. The wholesale supplier has raised rates 5 times? Find another supplier or negotiate harder. How about cutting salaries, pensions, and medical coverage to share the pain with the people of San Diego who pay these outrageous prices? How about de-salinization plants? Sitting on all that money? The city council should pass a law to permanently reduce the rates that paid for that hug pot of gold in the bank. We’re tired of paying ever higher prices with no end in sight.
