GOCHA landfill position paper
The Glendale City Council will meet Tuesday evening to consider large increases to our electricity rates. According to the GWP, these rate hikes are necessary to keep the utility from going insolvent by 2017. Opponents to the rate hikes site that if the utility kept all the money collected by customers rather than giving millions to the general fund, these hikes would not be necessary. The proposal would begin with an average jump of 8% this year, followed by further increases of 7%, 5%, 2% and 2% in subsequent consecutive years. The rate increases would be compounded on top of each other. Since the City Council will be meeting the same night that many residents will be participating in the National Night Out, please email the city council voicing your opinion on these large increases.
