Mod: Those demanding that you send in a Prop 218 water rate increase protest have harmed their own cause by pushing the untrue claim that water costs in Sierra Madre are going up a gargantuan 50%. It is actually a lot less. You would think that they would have learned their lesson after similar absurdly bogus claims about UUT matters sent Measure D down to an overwhelming defeat. That said, after reading all of the following, including the observations of the City Manager, do you know what your new water rates are going to be? Or the actual costs? Must it really be this complex?
