Boo to the City of Orange!

For actually taking to court a couple who is trying to reduce their water consumption.  They tore out their lawn and replaced it with fencing and drought-tolerant plants, but that didn’t appease the city.  Who (because I can’t believe it and I have to repeat it to myself) is now prosecuting them for not having a lawn!

In this age of being water-conscious, ridiculous!  As long as it isn’t endangering anyone and isn’t an eyesore, it is their private property to do with as they wish.

Good luck to the Has!

    Wow. That’s really lame. I really hope they don’t win.

    Wow.. that house is right down the street from me. I’ve walked past it dozens of times over the past few years. Super lame of the city to bust them for it. It doesn’t look too bad when you walk by. And I can see their point about saving water!

    Of course the the city would be pissed. That’s less money getting paid to them! Sheesh.
