Southern California Edison Corp. is disputing the city's claim that the company owes three years of unpaid business license taxes, plus penalties. City officials billed the utility $58,000 for back taxes plus penalties after an outside audit of the city's financial records revealed Edison had not been paying the license fee since 1949, when it was awarded a franchise. Under the law, however, the city can attempt to collect the money for just the past three years.
