2 Rock Throwers Caught

September 8, 2008

We are getting rain again tomorrow, Tuesday. When it rains, it pours. Green grass has returned to most of the places where there was just grey patches.


Tonight at a public hearing there will be item 9 "Tall Grass Ordinance". The county has spent $9,000 on 20 homes. The beneift was that 200 homes (through the help of many volunteers and many owners) got their grass cut.

I estimate that this action did help prevent a further loss of value in our homes. I also state on the record that the public resolve to get this grass cut helped the public image of Sterling as a place where we will take a stand when it comes to keeping up the quality of life.

Tonight we find out if the board will make this vigilance and cooperation with our community is permanent. If you can, please tell the board what you think at Thank you.
