The City of San Diego Issued an Investigation into the Water Department

It’s been a while that NBC 7 Responds has been trying to provide answers on the San Diego city water case. An unusual amount of people have been getting higher bills than they expect, claiming that they have not been using that much water.

 

The city was informed that there was a malfunction with one of the new smart water meter merchants.

 

On Monday, Johnnie Perkins, San Diego’s Deputy Chief Operating Officer of Infrastructure and Public Works, was ready to respond about the city’s water bill case.

 

He was preparing to make a public announcement along with the City’s Independent Rates and Oversight Committee. He promised the people of San Diego that there will be an investigation going on the Public Utilities Department.

 

According to Perkins, this will be the fourth investigation that will be done on the PUD. Investigators will look into the management routine, internal controls, and monitoring employee errors.

 

This case has been going on for months now. Residents of San Diego have been getting charged way over what they are supposed to be billed for water that has not been used in their households.

 

The Public Utilities Department was informed of the malfunction in the smart meters by the manufacturer. The manufacturer informed them that over 36,000 of the smart meters were not working properly.

 

One of the spokespersons for the Public Utilities Department, Jerry McCormick, responded to this issue yesterday claiming that “The issue did not appear when affected meters were connected to the system,” and also stating that it was “minor.”

 

NBC 7 Responds did more research into this case and found that over 2,600 San Diegans were affected with higher bills than they were supposed to get.

 

So, San Diego’s Chief Operating Officer, Kris Michell, also took action yesterday and distributed a “citywide memo” of the new investigation into the city’s water department.

San Diego Judge Orders Government to Reunite Kids with Parents

San Diego Judge Orders Government to Reunite Kids with Parents

After Trump stated that the children that were separated from their families will not reunite with their parents who are still in the detention centers, a San Diego federal judge gave a court order to the government to do the opposite.

About 18 different states claimed a lawsuit against the U.S. government to reunite children with parents who have been held at facilities under the “zero-tolerance policy.” One of the states is California, which was filed from San Diego.

Dana Sabraw, a U.S. District Judge put an order that would require to reunite kids of age 5 and under with their parents within the next 14 days. She also put an order that kids over the age of 5 be reunited with their family within the next 30 days.

However, Alex Azar, Secretary of Health and Human Services, claims that the quickest way for these families to be reunited is to take back their asylum claims and agree to be deported back to their country.

If the parents are still claiming their case as an “asylum claim,” then their case may take months or years and they will be held in the detention center for the entire time.
Azar stated if their case is still pending or under revision, they will not be reunited with their kids.

Today, The House voted on a bill that was originated by Republicans that would rebuild or recreate some of America’s immigration laws. However, results of the vote have not been said yet.

Homicide Investigation in Lemon Grove Neighborhood

LEMON GROVE, California — Homicide investigators were in a Lemon Grove neighborhood overnight, working to determine what led to the death of a man found on the ground outside a home.

The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department was first called to the neighborhood at about 9 p.m. when residents on Lemon Avenue reported hearing loud banging on their door, SDSO Lt. Rich Williams said.

The neighborhood is near a shopping center located south of State Route 94, north of Broadway and west of Lemon Grove Avenue.

When deputies arrived, they found a man lying on the ground outside the home with serious and visible injuries to his upper body. It was not clear what type of injuries he suffered.

The medics were trying to revive the man, but he was declared dead about 20 minutes after deputies arrived.

Williams said an autopsy would need to be completed to determine the man’s cause of death. The man’s name would not be released until family could be notified.

During the investigation, a sheriff’s department helicopter was seen flying overhead announcing it was looking for an armed male suspect with black dreadlocks wearing a grey jacket and black backpack.

A lieutenant at the scene said they could not confirm a suspect description because they have several possible descriptions.

Williams said the suspect is not known to them at this time.

A man in the area who used to live in the neighborhood said there’s a lot of crime and warned people to be careful when they come around.

There is no further information available at this moment.
