L.A. County to Accept Water Quality Fee Protests by Mail, Email

Property owners who want to oppose the Clean Water, Clean Beaches Measure can now mail or email their protests to the LA County Flood Control District.

The Measure aims to raise $295 million a year to pay for cleaning the “region’s rivers, lakes and beaches, protect public health and safeguard local sources of drinking water” for cities and unincorporated areas in LA County by imposing a fee on property owners.

All protests must be received by March 12, 2013 and must include the parcel site address, Assessor’s Parcel Number, the name of the parcel owner, as well as the signature of the parcel owner or an authorized representative.

Protest forms are available at LACountyCleanWater.org or parcel owners can email a protest letter to WQFI.Info@dpw.lacounty.gov. Only scanned or photographed email protests with a handwritten signature will be accepted. Protests can also be mailed to the Executive Officer of the Board of Supervisors, P.O. Box 866006 Los Angeles, CA 90086. A ballot box for hand-delivered protests is located on the 3rd floor of the Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration, 500 West Temple Street, Room 383.
