I have a question for the Pacifica City Council and City Manager Kevin Woodhouse. If Pacifica’s goal is to have an engaged community — per your goals — why not actually engage with the community in some very important dialogue?
For starters, let’s talk about the sewer system and the general lack of accountability from staff on its performance. In 2017, Pacifica increased the rates for the sewer system to build an equalization basin. The rate increase accounted for a 40 percent contingency should the costs of construction exceed estimates. That project is now complete and there is no mention of rates going down.
