Paland v. Brooktrails Township Cmty. Serv. Dist., A122630

In a dispute involving the imposition of minimum monthly water and sewer base rates, trial court judgment for the water district is affirmed where a minimum charge imposed on parcels with connections to a water district's utility systems for the basic cost of providing water or sewer service, regardless of actual use, is a charge for an immediately available property-related service as defined in the California Constitution and consequently does not require ballot approval by affected owners.
