Really? Wasting gallons and gallons of clean water to promote his campaign?? (and yes, we can all see through the "fun day for the kids and families). The public is told there is a drought, but of course that doesn't apply to certain people - obviously. Remember when the drought didn't apply to the thousands of gallons of water Webber uses to water his mansion landscape? D. Stark - you ask how can Webber appear so at ease and confident with his history of horrible "leadership"? - hey when a person has no conscience or sense of morals it's easy!

Free publicity but in a negative way! He will still win re-election! And Vigil-Coppler will remain a city councilor. Oh well, that’s show-biz this past weekend, at one of our city parks!

Paul - VC’s term is up and you are completely wrong. By running for Mayor, if she loses, she is no longer on the Council. Do your research before you state incorrect information!

D. Stark

It’s very nice that the children had a good time and that a kind firefighter has been recognized, but really, why on earth are we using a precious resource in this manner and, in the middle of a serious drought? Summer is still young - we can only hope that we are not headed towards the same fate aa the West Coast.

I also wonder, how our Mayor can appear so at ease and confident given the history of his extremely disappointing and poor leadership. Please tell me exactly just what he has accomplished during his term besides fueling our division.

Vigil Coppler uses her position on city council at every meeting to campaign (criticize and pretends to care about residents when she leads the charge for more and more development without thought to neighborhoods) whether she clearly states so or not. I wonder how many years the great splash down has occurred.

Since you comment on almost every article regarding City Government why not step up to the plate and take action by running for office. You obviously think and believe you are the accountability overseer so do something by taking meaningful action. You have created quite a reputation and obviously thrive on conflict. Being judgmental and critical serves no purpose if you are not willing to put yourself on the front line. You complain about whiners and you win that award.

Seems a poor choice in the midst of a drought. Are they using gray water?

Angel Ortiz

Seriously? Grey water? If we try we could start a conspiracy theory from this.

Andrew Lucero

Grey Water? Yeah, nothing like having the kids playing in partial sewage... Of course, I wouldn't put that past Webber.

Richard Reinders

Hydrants are off the same water mains as the homes, I guess we have enough water to waste.

Richard Reinders

Theres a few less toilet that can flush when the water runs out.
