Water Rates Could Go Up for Lucerne

Lucerne residents let their voices be heard regarding proposed water rate increases. A public hearing was held at the Lucerne Alpine Senior Center on Monday for the state’s Public Utilities Commission to receive comments about California Water Service Company’s application for the increases over the next three years for the Bay-Area Region-Redwood Valley Service area. The increases would pay for infrastructure improvements. Many who attended the meeting expressed disapointment in their current water quality and service.
