You can put barrels all over your property and catch rain water. But you can't build a pond or lake and catch water.
There are several water companies like SRP. RWCD is one and it is in the valley.
Roosevelt Water Conservation District. There are others on the western side of the state.
Can't remember the name of them. Yuma farmers get water out of the Colorado river then it runs down on into Mexico.
Yes I have filed many freedom of information requests several years ago. When I first started I just ask for what I wanted then later I had to fill out forms and the town attorney had to read them and I paid 50 cents a sheet. The other day I filed one and when I called to see if it was ready was told it would be a few more days as the attorney, town manager and someone else had to look at it and I had not made it specific enough. Told the clerks office to forget it. I think it is a $1.00 a sheet now but not sure.
I wanted part of the budget to see what the salaries were for certain positions, and information on the cargo bins as there has been an ordinance against them on private property for over 10 yrs. Only 2 I know of that were removed becaused I filed a complaint and it took over a yr. to get them removed. Ordinances are complaint enforced.
My opinion, they didn't want me to have the things I requested before the council meeting. So I told them to forget it. Tried to see LaRon Garret and the town attorney the first day I went in and lo and behold they were both out of Town.
I don't understand how the information is sent back to APS, but I do have a concern as I have a Pacemaker for my heart which restricts a lot of things I can do or get near.
I can not carry a cell phone on my body. I can talk on one as long as it is held on my right side for a short time and as far from my ear as possible.
I can drive a car, but not stand near a running motor. Don't park under high power electric lines or use gas motor yard tools. Don't stop in the doorways of stores that have alarms.
I could go on and on. Can not walk into a room where there is a MRI machine, but can have some x-rays. I don't fly but if I did, I would have to be strip searched as I can not go thru thier alarms at the airports.
For non believers go on to the internet and look it up. The dr. that put it in would not tell me anything, said call the company that made the device. Needless to say he is no longer my dr.
Some of the things will only shock the pacemaker, others will stop it. No more heart beat.
I went to APS and explained this to them and was put on a list that I will not have to have a smart meter installed.
They were very understanding and amazed at what I was telling them.
Robbin. SRP owns all the run off water from the Tonto national forest except for the people who filed thier claims on thier wells and irrigation water on the ranches way back in the 70's. We had a ranch west of Payson and had to fill out claims for our irrigation water. Green Valley park lakes has some allotement but as long as they aren't cleaned out the water does not go back into the ground. Payson water dept. and the sewer district need to get together and CLEAN it.
You are allowed to drill a well for home use. You have to get a permit from the Ariz water dept. and each well has a number given to it. Payson can not stop you, and they can not put a meter on it an charge you for your water. That has been tried.
Of course they can buy property next to you and drill a deeper well to drain yours. That has been done too. Doesn't always work for them but sometimes it does. Then you have a dry well.
If something ever happens again on a state highway report to DPS, Highway Patrol.
Not the town police.
I suggest you keep your dog at home. The dog park was not built for people with restrooms and shelter from the elements. Stay at home when it is raining.
What do you want? Ramadas with carpet and lounge chairs. I had a long comment and it went away so this will be short.
If you are so miserable there, go somewhere else. There is a big open space on Tyler Parkway and we are surrounded by forest.
Of course there is feces and urine in the ground. What did you think the park was for?
The dogs to run around with their legs crossed. How much time, effort and money did you contribute to the dog park?
Maybe you should stay home and you and the people you complain to at the park would both be happier.
Some of the money from Brooks should be used to drain and clean Green Valley Lakes.
We are not getting water back into the ground from there because so much mud and garbage in the bottom of the lakes are sealing it off like concrete would.
The water is going right on down American Gulch.
Were all of these women truthful and did any of them bring it on by thier actions or the way they were dressed?
If you dress and act like a lady you will be treated like one.
There are a few exceptions but not many.
I would have owned the restaurant before the incindent of the black eye was finished.
I know you all think I have a bad attitude, but I gained it over the years of being a quiet little mouse until I was about 55 Then realized I didn't have to take the crap other people tried to pull on me, my family or friends. OR TOWN (:
Not in my kitchen. And thats a fact. You can ask some of my ex employees. One screw up and they were gone.
If you want to know what kind of restaurant you are eating in check out the restroom first.
That is no joke. If the restroom is not really clean where the public goes, think what the kitchen must be like.
I never threw anyone out of the restaurant but I did tell one very quietly to never come back.
We had all you could eat ribs on Sat. night. One night a waitress told me that one lady had reorderd 4 times, and was saving the bones for her dog. I walked over to her table and she had a plastic bag full of untouched ribs. I picked up the bag and told her no leftovers were to leave the restaurant on Sat. nights and do not come back.
No, I did not charge her and her husband for thier dinner.
Thats when I would have filed something against the police dept. and the owner for my pay.
That was very sexist and should have been reported farther up.
I wonder how men excuse "thier time of the month" which usually lasts about 24 days.
