The Portola City Council passed its 2011-12 budget at its June 22 meeting, but not without public challenge.
Portola resident Fran Roudebush said, “I’m asking that you postpone passing this budget, or at the very least, remove salary and benefits from this budget. What we are looking at as far as rate increases is the Operations and Maintenance (in water and sewer funds) and a lot of that is salaries.”

What if someone offered to install your solar panels for free, pay for all the maintenance and repairs, implement other energy-saving measures, cut your electricity usage by 12 percent, guarantee you no more than a 2.5 percent increase in electric rates and give you a check at the end of each year for electricity generated above and beyond your usage?
