What the heck? They raised rate and imposed fines to force us to conserve. Now that we conserve, they again raise rate to cover the savings from customers conserving water. We are such suckers to let them do whatever they feel like doing. Enough is enough!

Pleasanton residents are getting ripped off over water conservation. Cities are not the biggest consumers of water, yet they use this as a pretense to get revenue into their tillers. Most likely it will be used to pay city government retirees in the future.

Abide by the perimeters set fourth in conservation , and get punished with increase after increase . Pleasanton willingly continues to build on every empty lot to greater increase the cities revenues with no consideration for current residences. If you think you need to get increases, try implementing the increases only on new residential builds moving forward. You can ask "what have you done for me lately?) Nothing, except "ROB" your citizens. They are no better than a theif in the night.

Everything cycles back to employee costs and the pension mess.

Building on vacant land is only the beginning. Building on "underutilized" land is the real threat, existing buildings will be removed to build bigger and up.
