Watering limits mandatory

Wednesday, June 27, 2012

McCOOK, Nebraska -- Because of the extreme heat and very high water usage, the City of McCook is stating that effective immediately, all citizens must refrain from using any outside water between the hours of 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. While prior water restrictions were voluntary, they were elevated to mandatory with this action.

We, the citizens, are under a mandatory water restriction.... Why does the city not abide by the same rule??

Norris park, main street islands, Kelly Park, High School and Jr. High School are all watering during the day... Why??? Last Saturday, the Jr. High was watering @ 11:00 am and one of the sprinklers was broken, shooting water in one spot, flooding the area. Kelly Park waters the grass during the day and etc.

Is the city above it's own madatory bans on watering??? Answer this question Mr. Mayor... and your appointed city council. Mr. Public Works Director, please answer this question also.

If we have to comply, so should you!!!! And if you don't feel you need to comply or answer this, don't complain or have people fined for watering during the same times you do!!!

You want to watch and complain, so can we!!! And we are!!!

Am I incorrect or is the school system NOT part of the City? I don't believe the City oversees the schools............ ed?

It is not part of the city, but they are all connected. The Mayor IS the Jr. High principal. Shouldn't the school follow the same guidelines as others in the city with the water situation??
