A municipal water district engineer was arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty after he allegedly killed a former girlfriend's dog and dumped the small Maltese in a West Hills trash bin, investigators said Friday. Rommel Marzan, 44, was arrested Tuesday after investigators deemed that his story that he had fallen on the small dog was not credible and a veterinarian determined that the animal had died from blunt head trauma, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Det. Steve Colitti said. Marzan works for the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District.

Three days after the giant Metropolitan Water District ended mandatory rationing, the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District followed suit and eased restrictions on water use for customers in Calabasas, Agoura Hills and Westlake Village. The district's board of directors voted 3 to 2 Monday to replace a mandatory 17% reduction in water use with a voluntary 10% reduction. Earlier last month, the board reduced the 27% mandatory reduction in effect since last year.

A Calabasas couple sued the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District in U.S. District Court on Tuesday, charging that water rationing rules unfairly discriminate against new residents of the western San Fernando Valley. The suit filed by Robert Ross, an attorney, asked for an increased water allotment on the grounds that the rationing plan adopted by the district in January grants new residents only 70% as much water as the average customer in the hottest months.

The appeal is by the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District. Last year Jonathan Vo was awarded $40,000 after a Los Angeles County jury found the water district had failed to prevent discrimination and permitted a hostile work environment where Vo was the victim of racial slurs.

Vernon Padgett, a retired doctor and frequent critic of the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District, has unseated board President Harold "Hal" Helsley, the white-bearded director who has served for 20 years. Backed by a group pushing for lower water rates, Padgett and two other challengers seeking seats on the board forced three veteran directors--with 48 years of water board service among them--into tight races.

To hear their supporters tell it, a slate of challengers seeking three seats on the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District board are riding to the rescue of customers tired of paying too much for their water. But over in the incumbents' camp, these white knights look more like a Trojan horse. They say the group backing the challengers in Tuesday's race, Citizens for Lower Water Rates, is a front for developers trying to take over the five-member water board.

But if individual toilets are replaced, the district will offer the previously set rebate of $60 per toilet.

More than two dozen employees of the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District went door-to-door Sunday alerting residents in about 1,600 homes that their drinking water is safe despite last week's contamination scare. The water supply was declared safe late Saturday after results from a second round of testing showed no bacterial contamination.
