editor: Well, let me get this straight. I’m supposed to cut my water use by 20 percent this year, let my lawn die and pay someone who recycles their water to wash my car.
Meanwhile, local golf courses have kept acres of grass growing, vineyards are the only thing not brown covering every hillside in the county and a new brewery seems to pop up around here about once a month. (Apparently, it takes 6 gallons of water to produce 1 gallon of beer.)
Enjoy your weekend. I gotta crack a beer. It’s hot out, and I just finished washing my truck in the driveway here in Wine Country.
EDITOR: I heartily agree with Susan Myerson (“Form over function,” Letters, Friday) regarding the useless spending of funds to update Courthouse Square. She was correct in stating that our city streets are in horrible condition. Montgomery Drive, Sonoma Avenue and many others are is deplorable condition.
I also noticed that streets that need no repair are being resurfaced, while others lay in disrepair. I took a drive through Skyhawk subdivision, which is a relatively new addition, and the streets there had been resurfaced. The resurfacing abruptly stopped at the boundary where the older homes were.
What gives here? Is there no one living in the older subdivisions who has enough clout to deserve the same street repair.
