Underreporting of water meters at Sun Lakes settled (CA)

A dispute over a three-year period of underbilling of water meters at Sun Lakes Country Club was settled after the retirement community agreed to pay $113,000 to the Banning Utility Authority.  At its July 15 meeting, the Sun Lakes Country Club Homeowners Association proposed its last best offer to resolve the matter, which was approved by the city at its Sept. 27 council meeting.  At issue were four commercial water meters that were not properly registering water usage. Although the meter situation was corrected, there still existed an undercharge; however, the city can legally only go back three years from the date the underreporting was discovered; further, the city’s own water rules stipulate that “undercharges shall not be computed for a period exceeding four months” for residential users.      Read the article………..
