The City Council in July unanimously approved placing Measure P on the ballot. It was the council’s reply to a class-action lawsuit alleging that Pasadena Water and Power had overcharged customers to guarantee there is money available to transfer to the general fund. As of Wednesday morning, 84 percent of Pasadena voters gave two enthusiastic thumbs up for Measure P’s passage.

The measure read “Shall the measure maintaining 911 response, fire, paramedic, public health, senior and homeless services, street repairs, and other services by amending the City Charter to continue collecting in electric rates and maintain the longstanding transfer, limited to 12% gross revenue, providing $18,000,000 annually to Pasadena’s General Fund that does not increase taxes or utility rates until ended by voters, requiring financial audits with all funds locally controlled benefitting Pasadena residents, be adopted?’’
