There is a ban, but some on my street will have the most beautiful lawns because a village employee lives on our street, great friends with him.

I have my own well. Maybe they do too? Alot of the older areas have wells so it really doesnt apply. Tho my lawn still looks like burnt hay!

For the price of this "great" lake Michigan water you should be able to use as much as you want whenever you want.

If it is that devistating using the water outside why have they not shut down the car washes, I wonder if the mayor and village administration have brown grass? Since they won't let us use the water then they need to lift the ban to allow everyone to be able to put in a well. Then lower our taxes because of it!
