An interesting article in the paper this morning says
An Oconee County state representative says the Athens-Clarke Commission should ease its watering restrictions to help landscapers during the drought.
The total outdoor watering ban in Athens is too severe and will lead to a loss of jobs, said state Rep. Bob Smith, R-Watkinsville. The commission should allow watering by hand at least once a week, he told commissioners Tuesday night."
Now call me over simplistic, but who in the heck does HE think he is telling the Athens-Clarke County Government what is should do for its residents?
This is a perfect example of why the proposed repeal of local property taxes should NOT be allowed to move forward.
