Claremont officials continue to collect water bills from citizens who have seen their water utilities surmount the total of their other combined utilities. The collection will be ongoing through Tuesday, April 24.
The collection, taking place at Claremont City Hall ((207 Harvard Ave.), is the city’s latest initiative to provide evidence to the California Public Utilities against Golden State Water Company’s requested water rate spikes, proposed to begin in January 2013.
Claremont residents can participate by making a copy of their water bills from within the past year, and deliveries those copies to the city hall lobby, where a utility payment drop box has been placed. A statement of protest may also be added to another drop box found directly next to the bill collection. Letters should be addressed to:
Catherine Sandoval, Commissioner
California Public Utilities Commission
505 Van Ness Avenue
San Francisco, CA 94102
The letters and bills must be submitted by 4:45 p.m. on April 24. An informal meeting will begin at 5 p.m. City officials will be on hand to discuss recent events and answer questions. The letters will be presented to the Claremont City Council at its meeting that night at 6:30 p.m. in the City Council Chamber.
