Controversy Over Water In Part Of Ventura County Could Boil Over Tonight

Posted on Tuesday, January 29, 2013 9:00am

The controversy over water rates in one Ventura County community could overflow tonight.

Some Ojai area residents are upset with their water bills, saying they’re paying much more than neighboring government run system customers. They’re pushing for a government takeover of the water system.

Officials with the company contend their rates are competitive, when you compare them to combined water, and tax bills from government providers.

KCLU’s Lance Orozco looks at the dispute, which will be the focus of a community meeting tonight.
