Water Conservation by Increased Prices of Usage

Water Conservation by Increased Prices of Usage

I am appalled at the city, county and state for forcing the individuals of this great state to pay more for water when we use it when they are the biggest abusers of water in the state. How many times do you still see schools, parks, city municipal buildings all being watered when it is raining How many times do you see water running down curbs around these properties yet they are ready to ticket and actually increase a bill "that gives us sticker shock" in order to curtail our usage. Like my grandmother used to say, this didn't get this way overnight. Our problem isn't the public it's the lack of our government officials failing to lead by example. I would love to see management of our state done in a proactive way instead of a reactive way. Now they want us to pay for the connection lines for the wealthy land owners who put in Wind Power Generators which have received tax credits and loans at a discounted rate. I know the generators are expensive but what other business will be paid for in 8 years minimum guaranteed. Thanks for reading, I am not done
