Court rules against Alhambra excavation ordinance fee

The California Gas Co. has won a lawsuit claiming that Alhambra had overcharged for the utility's excavation procedures. According to the ruling, the city was unable to justify the additional fees. The California Gas Co. says it will seek reimbursement for its legal fees, which may require Alhambra to pay more than a half-million dollars.
