    Councilman Nakinishi asks a good question and follows up with a good common sense comment.

    I expect this change will be approved by another "3/2 vote" at a future council meeting---not simply considered as the article states.

    Thank you councilman Nakinishi for standing up for rate payers.

    It makes no difference the number of tiers we have, where the problems start is when LEUD and City Council have the ability to hang the price on each tier. Our 1st tier starts at $.14- SMUD $ .09 , and our 5th tier @ $.33 SMUD $ .18, usually has the largest amount of KWH attached to it. Too much jockying and manipulation to satisfy the hungry general fund wirh rate payer dollars.
