Santa Monica residents and businesses can expect decreases in their water bills next month after a City Council decision to partially reimburse customers for a surcharge imposed in September 1996. The council levied the 25% surcharge to offset costs of buying from the Metropolitan Water District after several city-owned wells were found to be contaminated by the gasoline additive MTBE, said Craig Perkins, director of environmental and public works management.

The county stepped up collection of overpayments in 1994, after Gov.

A barrage of complaints from bank customers who claim they were misled when they bought mutual funds has evoked an unusual response: Some banks are quietly making up losses for people who swear to shut up about it. Banks are reimbursing customers who lost money when the funds fell in value, according to customers, consultants and lawyers. Others are waiving sales fees or letting customers withdraw money from funds without paying penalties.

The City Council agreed this week to reimburse Councilwoman Cecilia L. Age $357 for attending Gov. Pete Wilson's inaugural ball. Age, a former mayor, said the event was an opportunity for "team building" and a chance for her to represent the city. "Every opportunity you have to put a name with a face, you do it," Age said. She added that the event took place all weekend, but she went for only one day, trying to minimize costs. "I booked the cheapest air fare and hotel," Age said.

WellPoint Health Networks Inc., the nation's second-largest private health insurer, said Thursday that it would not reimburse people who use AstraZeneca's new cholesterol drug, Crestor, because of concerns over its safety. The Food and Drug Administration approved Crestor in August after a long debate about the risk of side effects. The approval came with warnings about rare cases of a potentially fatal muscle-destroying condition that affects the kidneys called rhabdomyolysis.

Dozens of dogs seized from a Woodland Hills home earlier this month will be transferred for adoption unless the owner reimburses the city the $7,000 it has cost to care for them, officials said Thursday. Authorities took 70 dogs from the home of Ivan Callais after neighbors complained. Callais said he was only keeping the dogs overnight. "It's a detriment to other animals coming through this facility," said Richard Felosky, manager of the West Valley Animal Shelter.

Due to an apparent change in Federal Emergency Management Agency rules, the city of San Fernando could lose as much as $500,000 in reimbursement for repairs and construction costs related to the January 1994 Northridge earthquake, city officials said.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency agreed this week to reimburse about $400,000 to Malibu for money the city lost after it waived building permit fees for residents who lost their homes in the 1993 fires. Permits generally help pay for building inspections needed after disasters such as fires. By waiving permit fees, the city incurred the costs of the building inspections, said Assistant City Manager Mark Lorimer.
