All county and city residents should take a look at their May 2008 and June 2008 water/sewer bills if they still have copies. Even though the service was received from the county/city because they were two months behind in billing the CFPUA, when they formed on 7/1/08, decided to charge all residents the new higher CFPUA rate for those months. Why? One answer given was because it was more convenient to only charge the one rate versus adjusting the back bills to the lower rates charged by the county/city.
The CFPUA even passed an internal ordinance allowing them to do such.So, how legal was this? Do you think that possibly the CFPUA defrauded the residents by charging the higher rate? Did the county/city get any of the extra monies collected? Or, did the CFPUA just pocket the extra monies?
No commissioner, no council member, no media seems to seek a factual answer.
