$9,200 for Lunch? How About $470K for a Trip?

Do we have another $400 hammer here? How does a $9,200 luncheon at the Metropolitan Water District sound? Or how about a $75,000 donation to the Water for the West Foundation (that doesn't have a website) that never got spent?

These are just a few of the findings of Arnold's new auditor on the MWD's finances.

I really like the expenditure of about $470,000 to take board members on inspection trips. Or, for that matter, the reimbursement of the chief executive for a $535 dinner for two at an upscale San Diego eatery without question.

MWD supplies water to roughly half the population of California and collects more than $1 billion in annual revenues, most of which comes from the sale of water. Its customers are homeowners who pay about $225 for a year's worth of water for a family of four.

Do the math.
