Leading by example?

You know that old saying about fiddling while Rome burned?
This was taken from the City's homepage.

This was taken yesterday 8-29-08.

Just makes you wonder how is the City going to encourage its residents to be responsible stewards of our resources when the City feels they do not need to be.

So glad that golf course greens are exempt, cause everyone knows clean drinking water comes second to perfect greens, not to mention all the gas that is used to cut those greens because they are watered so much- which causes more of a demand for the commodity which makes our current gas prices so volatile... Sorry don't get me started, this is about water.

I enjoy the beauty and the sound of the fountain immensely and have called Public Works many times when it has malfunctioned, but the time has come for us to be responsible. If the City is expecting us to tighten our belts in order to prevent a larger crisis, we should be expecting the same from the City.
