Plan Ahead: The Water Rate Study Ad Hoc Committee will hold a second public meeting at 4pm, Thursday, June 30, in the Council Chambers of Fullerton City Hall (303 W. Commonwealth Ave).

The results of the study and the proposed water rate increases are expected to be brought to the City Council in July.
