Members of a Paso Robles group have filed a claim against the City of Paso Robles requesting some $8 million worth of rebates for residents over water and sewer fees they say have been improperly collected since 2002.
The claim by Concerned Citizens for Paso Robles alleges the city violated requirements of Proposition 218, known as “The Right to Vote on Taxes” act.
The city has 45 days to respond to the claim. If it is denied, the group could file a lawsuit.
The group is being represented by the Los Angeles law firm Huskinson, Brown, Heidenreich & Carlin.
A city water official didn’t return a call as of press time.
