For the first time in recent memory, the Los Angeles City Council has balked at a water rate increase requested by the Department of Water and Power, delaying a decision on the politically touchy matter until January. But in the meantime, the council members find themselves in the uncomfortable predicament of having to choose between the apparently intractable positions of warring city agencies. And they don't like it.
