And then there is this magical sentence that, should it ever come to happen, would make Sierra Madre's yellow water seem like something out of a golden era. One that we'd gladly sell our fiduciary souls to the SGVMWD to bring back.
Recycling/Grey Water - This would install recycling facilities in homes and businesses to help replenish our groundwater and to recharge our existing wells.
As much as I am in favor of using whatever means possible to help our city deal with the effects of the 500 Year Drought, I am not certain that filling our currently near empty wells and aquifers with gray water is the solution any of us should be hoping for right now. There has simply got to be a better way.
I am not sure that Noah quite understands the whole gray water concept. Though he does go on to state that he is in favor of more water, which is probably a better thing than the alternative.
And did you know that the reason Sierra Madre is an "independent entity" is because we the residents pay the highest utility taxes in California? Here I thought that money went to help pay for emergency services such as our police, fire and paramedic departments. This does makes you wonder exactly who or what we've been paying a million dollars a year in ransom to all of these years for our independence. Perhaps a militarily adventurous Pasadena?
Or that Noah would like to see all of the empty stores downtown filled up with new businesses? A rather bold statement, and one that could cost him the votes of those many politically active people in town who want those storefronts to remain empty. Folks that up until now were probably quite happy with current Chamber of Commerce Vice President Noah Green as our downtown has never had as many vacant shops as it does today.
I really don't think that there can be much doubt. We are truly living in troubled times.
