The board voted unanimously at the January 2008 meeting against the proposed DWP rate increases. The motion read:

“The WNC supports the NC/LADWP Memorandum of Understanding Oversight Committee January 5, 2008 Resolution regarding proposed LADWP Rate Actions for 2008-2010 to not approve any LADWP rate increases until the information and recommendations of the IEA Survey can be considered by the Mayor, Controller, City Council, and Neighborhood Councils so as to allow all to make informed decisions.” A letter was sent to the DWP MOU Oversight Council.

Due to challenges with LAUSD, principal Caren Guthmans has requested that the funds be increased to $3,000 to pay for tables and umbrellas outside the parent center. The WNC is currently coordinating with the principal to move forward on these exciting projects.
