Dear Gallons Customer:

            Please be advised that some of our customers have instituted a legal proceeding in the California Superior Court for the County of Marin claiming that certain bills sent to our current and former gallons customers violate the terms of a prior Settlement Agreement and Court Order. We disagree with their position. The Court held a hearing on December 6, 2016 and has not yet decided the issue one way or another.

            Another hearing is scheduled for April 25, 2017. In the interim, the Court has ordered that you need not pay any balance charged on your account for any type of charges incurred prior to April 15, 2016. You must, however, continue to pay all charges incurred on or after April 15, 2016, including deliveries and other charges invoiced under the new billing software and reflected on statements dated May 31, 2016 to date. The amount of the current charges you should pay is set forth on your December billing statement that is mailed in January 2017.

            We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused.
