The LADWP has scheduled five additional community meetings to provide more opportunities for the public to learn about its proposed five-year rate request, beginning November 10th in Glassell Park.

The proposed action seeks modest water and power rate increases each year, starting in 2016 through 2020, based on the following priorities: ramping up the replacement of aging water and power infrastructure to improve reliability, meeting regulatory mandates that require a complete transformation of the City’s power supply, protecting against drought conditions by expanding LA’s local water supply, and improving customer service.

Customers and other interested stakeholders are invited to participate in any of the upcoming meetings and have their questions answered about the proposed rate changes. This is the second round of community outreach meetings. Prior meetings have been held in San Pedro, West Los Angeles, downtown Los Angeles, the East and West Valleys, and East and South Los Angeles. LADWP also makes presentations to individual community groups and neighborhood councils when invited.

The new series of community meetings are scheduled as follows:
