A Letter from Los Angeles City Council President Herb J. Wesson, Jr.:

Dear Friend:

Your voice matters and is an important part of the Los Angeles City Council's efforts to reform the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power (DWP). The DWP is the largest publicly-owned utility in the nation and ratepayers who own the utility, deserve a department that is responsive to their needs. As such, I am calling on our city's Neighborhood Councils, alliances and other community groups to get involved and offer input and ideas on how to better improve the accountability, operations, and affordability of the department. The Rules, Elections, Intergovernmental Relations and Neighborhoods committee, which I chair, has proactively sought out feedback from community members and conducted several regional meetings citywide since February. However, the time is nearing for final recommendations to be made. But it's not too late. We are hosting two additional meetings this month. The first is scheduled for May 11, 6PM, at Van Nuys City Hall and the second is scheduled for May 19, 6PM, at West Angeles Church Crystal Room. Please attend and invite your friends and neighbors to participate.

So pull up a chair, and have a seat at the table. Use social media to get involved using #‎DWPReform. All ideas welcomed. For more information, please visit
