Santa Ana’s high water prices may rise even more if the MWD pension spike is approved
Santa Ana Mayor Pro Tem Claudia Alvarez added an 85a item, at the last minute, to the agenda for tonight’s Santa Ana City Council meeting. The item is titled “Proposed Metropolitan Water District (MWD) Employee Compensation and Benefits Issue.”
What this means is anyone’s guess. My theory is that she is going to ask the City Council to vote to support the irresponsible proposed pension spike for the MWD workers, but who knows? Perhaps she may be taking the counter view. One can only hope.
Santa Ana residents pay the highest water prices in Orange County, even though we have our own water table, which is to say that we store our water underground, for the most part.
Alvarez works for the Orange County District Attorney’s office. She is one of the most experienced Council Members in Santa Ana.
