      San Jose Water Company proposed rate increase

      San Jose City Hall, Council Chambers



      The League of Women Voters of San Jose and Santa Clara along with the Loma
      Prieta Chapter of the Sierra Club and Councilmember Don Rocha are
      co-sponsoring a Town Hall meeting to discuss the proposed increase. The
      agenda for this informative meeting will include:

      o A presentation explaining the rate increase the San Jose Water
      Company's long range plans and proposed infrastructure upgrades.

      o A summary of the California Public Utility Commission review of the
      proposed rate increase by Richard Rauschmeir, Division of Rate Payer
      Advocates, CPUC

      o Cynthia Jean Truelove, Director, Water Energy Research Initiative,
      Stanford University who will comment on water conservation initiatives and
      best practices in relation to the proposed rate increase



      On January 3, 2012 the San Jose Water Company proposed a 44 percent rate
      increase to be phased in over three years. This proposed increase is now
      before the California Public Utilities Commission for review and is awaiting
      approval for all or parts of the proposal. San Jose Water is a private,
      investor-owned company that serves more than 1 million people in the San
      Jose metropolitan area. Residents, business owners and city officials
      deserve the opportunity to discuss this proposal in an open forum and hear
      the key issues that justify this significant increase by the Water Company.
      The community should also hear the impacts this increase may have on water
      conservation and other social and environmental programs that benefit the
      greater good.
