Trick Question

If we’re under a watering ban, why the hell were the sprinklers on at Piedmont Park this morning at 5:30? Do 501(c)3’s have some sort of exemption I’m not aware of? Kind of like women driving and talking on the phone do with turn signals?

Just askin’, b/c if they do then I’m goiong to [officially] become a charity too.

    At least they weren’t making snow.

    It depends on where their water is sourced from. For example, if the park has its own irrigation well, it is not subject to the watering ban.

    Better question yet, are the developers at 12th and Midtown allowed to hook up to the city’s fire hydrants and use public water to build their Office and Hotel building?

    I didn’t realize that commercial developers got free use of city fire hydrants!

    How do you know it’s free?

    Chintan/Wonderer, the EPD’s regulations specifically address the use of a hydrant:

    I’ve seen them doing a lot of landscaping work at the park this past week…

    @ Susan – I had the same thought initially, since I’d seen a truck in there with a few flats of sod, but it was by Park Tavern and The Permanent Puddle…there was no new sod in sight.
