This Month's Question for Council members
Occasionally the CCS will ask City Council members a question and give them an opportunity to respond to their constituents.
Here is this month’s question with the resulting responses from council members listed below:
In light of the recent Superior Court decision regarding water billing in San Juan Capistrano, do you support refunding ratepayers for the amounts they have been overcharged on their water bills? Why or Why not?
|SJC Councilman Roy Byrnes, MD|
Councilman Roy Byrnes, MD: "Yes. As of now, the judge has ruled that the City of San Juan Capistrano has been guilty of overcharging the residents for water. I strongly believe that, if this is confirmed, the City has a legal and moral obligation to return the overcharge to the rate payers."
|SJC Councilman Derek Reeve, Esq.|
Council members Sam Allevato, Larry Kramer and John Taylor did not respond to the question.
