Union City sues financial consultant, says errors cost nearly $140,000

UNION CITY — The city has sued a financial consultant, saying that errors in handling a sanitation rate hike cost the city nearly $140,000, according to court documents.

Willdan Financial Services and Union City have negotiated for months over the money, but city leaders filed the lawsuit Friday after talks stalled, said City Attorney Benjamin Reyes.

“Willdan has not met any of the demands that the city has presented to date,” Reyes said.

Two other California communities have also accused the Anaheim company of costly errors.
