Petitioning City Manager, City of Falls Church Mr. Wyatt Shields and 8 others

Conduct an open, independent audit of the City of Falls Church water billings

A number of Falls Church City residents recently have received water bills that are substantially higher than normal.  Many have complained to City staff and officials and have been brushed off with unjustified and unsupported explanations.

This petition :

(1) summarizes the initial public comments;

(2) recounts the City's inadequate approach to the abnormal usage problem;

(3) rebuts the City's principal explanations; and

(4) outlines an approach by which the City can employ its own data to determine the extent of the problem and focus a more detailed investigation.

The City should use a small amount of the millions of dollars gained from its sale of its water utility to fund an independent and open audit of Falls Church’s water accounts to address citizens’ concerns.  This is required to restore City credibility on this issue.
