For city water It would be best to educate people on water use for landscaping. Most sprinkler systems are set to twice a day and it is not needed early or later in the year.

Once they raise the rates they are likely to keep them there.

It wouldn't deter use to a point that it would make a huge difference. People will use the water they need, even if they have to pay a bit more. It would just amount to a revenue-generating thing.

Why would you purposely put people that are financially stressed under more financial stress? The only people that benefit are the water companies. How dumb is that??

No, because conservation efforts should be consistent whether or not there's a drought. Only working to educate the public when there's a drought (defined by whom?) is minimally effective.

Obviously, if kids who shouldn't be riding these bikes cannot ride them to school, that represents hours of the day that they won't be on them, being reckless, violating basic rules of the road, and putting lives, including theirs, in danger.

I have a business literally across the street from their office/dump location and still get consistently missed on recycling. I have been missed regularly on garbage as well. The city has the ability to pull their contract if this continues.

I live in Crook County. We went a whole month without recycle pick up. The service is always on FB because of inconsistent service. We went two weeks with no garbage pickup. It's like this all over the city as well as out of city limits! VERY FRUSTRATING when you're paying for a service!

LOL. In Crooked River Ranch - we don't know what 'recycling' is. The garbage company totally did away with it. So - I feel no sympathy for some of you who have 'delays'.
