Letter: Water restrictions in Moses Lake

| July 10, 2023 10:17 AM

I read with great concern the Moses Lake City Council’s voting to make summer water restrictions year-round restrictions, including new rules pertaining to water leaks, and prohibiting “washing a vehicle with a hose that’s not fitted with a shut-off nozzle and allowing water from washing vehicles or pavement to go into the city stormwater system.”

I agree wholeheartedly with Council Member David Skaug’s remark: “I think the whole thing stinks.” It does stink and causes me to wonder what’s next, “Water Police?”

However, Mr. Skaug lost all credibility with me with this statement: “I think we’re asking the public, the little people, to bear the crunch of this.”

“The little people?” Seriously, Mr. Skaug, is that how you perceive your constituents, as “little people?”
