We Won the Golden State Appeal.
Ojai should be proud!

 

Golden State now has 40 days to file with the California Supreme Court, the court then has 60 days to decide if they want to take the case.
 
If the case does not go to the California Supreme Court, Casitas can then start the process of buying-out Golden State which includes eminent domain action.

 
Background:

Ojai rate payers have paid over $5.5 million dollars
and increasing at $9,315 per day (See counter below)
because Golden State has prevented us from getting
the Casitas water rates that we voted for.

On August 27, 2013, nearly 90% voted YES

It has been:

638 days 22 hours 53 minutes 41 seconds

Golden State’s lawsuit is costing us

$

  • $9,315 – per day
  • $388.12 – per hour
  • $6.46 – per minute
  • $0.11 – per second

WE WON,

Don’t fool around with Ojai,

FAREWELL GOLDEN STATE!

We went over the top, with 87.4% voting Yes.

This is unheard of and we should all be proud to be part of such a united community. This election will go down in history and used to show that people
can control their destiny.
