County needs to set a better example

By John Green | Published Saturday, July 19, 2014

Every morning in the wee hours I see the sprinklers running at the Wise County Courthouse.

There are several sprinklers broken and the water from them runs off into the street, down through the Post Office parking lot, and is gone.

The sprinklers run every day, regardless of whether we’ve had rain or not. It’s such a waste of water that we can’t afford.

I’m very concerned about the drought conditions we’re having and therefore our water table level. I don’t understand why someone hasn’t done something about repairing the broken sprinklers and programming them to run only when necessary.
