Manhattan Beach’s City Manager Dave Carmany seemed pleased when he made the comment, “I think this is a case of the city wanting to do the right thing.” Right thing about what? Well it seems that Manhattan Beach took the unusual step this week of inviting property owners to seek reimbursement for four years’ worth of street-sweeping fees because of concerns that the fee might be illegal.
So how does a Manhattan Beach homeowner get their reimbursement? By filling out reimbursement claim forms, available at http://bit.ly/18gxct3 or by calling 310-802-5000, Ext. 5570. Eventually this will cost Manhattan Beach, an estimated $1.5 million if all residents and commercial customers seek reimbursement or perhaps the better word is refund.
