Raising water rates in Las Vegas

Hearing today on raising water rates;
County Commission looks to reduce waste

Feb. 19, 2008

How does this reduce water waste? Why aren't we looking at the corporations, golf courses, and government wasting?

Maybe the County could even address the City of Las Vegas regarding its over-watering of the public parks. People all over the city have been complaining about the City's practice of wasting water.

Check out the article in the Forgotten Voice street paper (front page and page 5) about the waste of water in the public parks. These photos were taken on four consecutive Sundays in January 2008.
