Description

This investigation found that San Diego was funneling utilities money out of the general tax fund and using it to fill in gaps in the city's budget. Whenever the city needed more money, it would simply raise sewer and water fees. As a result, millions of dollars that should have been used to fix and maintain the sewer system were used to balance the budget.
