If the higher rate goes into effect June 1st, are they going to retrodate the charge to electricity consumed BEFORE June 1st? Isn't officially charging a new price for something that was consumed before the change a violation of ex post facto (after the fact). By terms of the U.S. constitution, violation of ex post facto is a violation, and could escalate into the city charter becoming invalidated. I will forward the date of the vote, the effective date of price elected by the governing authority, and the price charged for May consumption, before the effective date of the government increased price. If the city charges anyone for consumption, for electricity at a rate that had an effective increase in price before they created the edict of higher price, the economic terrorists will need federal relocation, and every city file will need to be seized until the city is cleared on a court of law.
