Mayor James Butts and the Inglewood City Council Members
United States of America

The City of Inglewood/ Metropolitan water service ratepayers were sent a notice of a water rate increase. Ratepayers were instructed to write letters and send them to city hall to protest. As a resolution, we were told if the majority of ratepayers oppose then the rate would not increase.

We submitted a public records request to determine the total number of letters needed to stop the water rate increase. The city clerks office responded by stating 7,000 letters are needed to avoid the rate increase.

The new hearing date is set for December 17, 2019 at 2pm at city hall.

Step 1: Mail in your letter to City Clerk City of Inglewood One West Manchester Boulevard P.O. Box 6500 Inglewood, CA 90312. Any written protest must include water service charge payer or property owner’s name, Assessor Parcel Number (APN) and/or water service address, a statement indicating your opposition to the proposed water service rate increase and signature.

The city asks that each protest letter identify on the front of the envelope that the enclosed letter of protest is for the Water Service Rate Increase Public Hearing. Owners of multiple properties must file a separate written protest for each property. Only one written protest per parcel will be accepted by either the property owner or water service charge payer. Verbal protests in the December 17th meeting will not count unless a letter was sent in.

Step 2: Sign the petition to be counted online and publicly in our community count.

Step 3: Share with other Inglewood Stakeholders

Let's match the number of letters needed with the same number of signatures. Sign this petition if you sent in a letter to oppose the rate increase to city hall.

We will include this petition to Mayor Butts and the City Council by the hearing date of December 17, 2019.
