    Water conservation. I thought no outdoor watering was all rated stated. I see Golf course is on the agenda are we going to break the rules here with this watering for some. Or is it a money issue. Plus City is going to raise our sewer rates in a matter of time with this water crisis. Is the City of Ellis going to try and drill outside the city limits. How long will we beat around the bush. Also Tax payers need to complain on our taxes if we can’t maintain our landscape outside. Our apprasil needs to be dropped some. I’m hearing 10 to 15% of your outdoor landscape is on your property tax. These are things to consider. We have lot of people who plant gardens here in Ellis. I think Ellis pushed and now no outdoor watering. But people can haul water in to town to water. We should have went to one day watering on your trash day along time ago. City of Ellis has a long road ahead. School issue here. County wanting more. Water issue. I see more taxes and what are we really getting.

  • passin threw

    so you’re gonna whine about the effluent water that the golf course uses?

  • You just wonder?

    No the Golf Course wants more. I don’t ! Passin threw. It’s on the agenda can’t you read!

    • passin threw

      the agenda says nothing about them wanting more, it just says they are on the agenda….but i say let them have all the effluent water they can pump. the one good thing about ellis is their golf course

  • You just wonder?

    I think Rec and School should use effluent water also. Or is there enough to go around while were spending money.

  • Fact

    What about private pool owners?

  • You just wonder?

    Can’t Hotubs and ect. Unless you haul water in.

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.

    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon.
    Thanks
