From the previous minutes Debra Powels asked if the sewer rates will be raised. I'm thinking Manager Lane didn't answer the question. From previous agenda minutes, why is the cost index including L.A. county, Orange county as well as Riverside county? Is the proposed cost increase 220% as found on previous agenda minutes(November of last year)? Will the council post clearly what the proposed increases will be, in a future agenda? In the previous minutes one table was showing a commercial rate like the Elks club would pay a $56.00 a month fee. It would be $123.00 a month fee with the new proposed increase. Debra Powels is right, stop dancing around as to what the "law" requires and state truthfully what the proposed rate increases will be and how the city justifies the increases.

The MOU for the middle management types still has a lot of "me too" clauses. If one bargaining unit gets something "we" get in kind "too". The city thinks it will cut costs here, it may not get the biggest bang for their buck. Basically they have put themselves in a position of not being able to compensate one group without compensating all groups.
