Today's the 25th - only odd-numbered addresses should be watering today. Guess city manager Ben Hughes can't read his own even-numbered address.

And it'd be nice if he read the city ordinances on dogs - his yard isn't fenced and he doesn't have invisible fence. When I walk by a house, I don't appreciate being charged at by someone's dog that is not restrained.

Ben is out of town this week. There is an exception to the watering rules when you have seeded your lawn. No dog around this week for the dog-phobic person to worry about.

Don't you have anything better to do than to get involved in something that doesn't have anything to do with you? For cryin' out loud, MYOB.

Then who's watering his lawn? Doesn't look just seeded to me....

And I'm not dog-phobic - I own a dog and don't need my small dog attacked when I walk by. His dog has been an issue since he moved in (i.e., YEARS). More than once I have seen him or his live-in running down the street chasing after the loose dog. And when they are walked, dogs should be ON A LEASH.

That all you have to complain about is a little dog and watering days. Get a life loser.

These ordinances are to followed by all residents including city administration and city council alike.
Just wait till LSI starts writing. This will be interesting to say the least.

My question is this - why bother watering WEEDS? Seriously, there is no grass on that man's property - it is all WEEDS.

Only an idiot would put down seed amongst weeds. The weeds would choke out any grass. The only solution is to GET RID OF THE WEEDS and THEN seed or resod. You'd think someone who makes $100,000 (according to other threads here) could afford a lawn service to fix the place.

The vast majority of houses on that street are well taken care of. Way to bring down the neighborhood, Ben.
