Pursuant to the City's Guidelines For the Submission and Tabulation of Protests, I, Nancy Sue Shollenberger, duly elected City Clerk of the City of Sierra Madre, have tabulated and determined the validity of the written protests to the City's proposed water fee increase. I hereby find and give notice that there were 1,898 written protests. Accordingly, a majority of parcel owners, who would have been impacted by the proposed fee increase, have submitted written protests.
In addition to the above-mentioned 1,898 written protests, I also noted that the City Clerk's Office received an additional 151 written protests which were duplicates, and/or did not qualify to be counted, two letters requesting their letters be withdrawn and one letter in favor of the water rate increase, which were not tabulated, along with 26 received after the deadline imposed by the City Council.
Nancy Sue Shollenberger
The City Clerk did not have access to the Assessor's Parcel Numbers List/Owner's Names. If this list is made available to her, she will be happy to check the list again.
