Good move, City of Vallejo.

On a personal level, I do not care who comes up with policies and safeguards that protect the honest ratepayer from those using and not paying...

I only see 2 posts so far, but neither addresses what is the issue. People obtaining goods and services without paying for them. Is that ok with anyone but me?

Are you willing to pay the tab squatters and assorted moochers create for all services they illegally obtain in addition to dragging down whole neighborhoods?

As a City of Vallejo ratepayer I am pleased to have this issue addressed, finally!
Now all we have to make sure is to have Sanitation & Flood, Recology Garbage Services, PG&E, etc. follow through with the same policy.

Gee, I've known squatters that pay the water bill. They will live in a house without electrical and gas but no running water is difficult for most of them. Good move COV, about time.

the city of Vallejo is run by democrats
bums steal from the rest of us
squatters steal real property from the rest of us
the city offices that should do something, that have the law behind them, that can call the police for an eviction, don't
the one and only reason that this allowed to continue is because that's what the city leaders want
democrats need a permanent underclass to vote for them and will make every working taxpayer pay the freight in order to stay in office
you don't have to like it or believe it but that is the was it is !

bums, squatters, and democrats must go !
