Good news of the week

It looks like water restrictions in Lincoln, which I expected to go into effect quite early this year, are not going to be needed just yet.  That's certainly good news for the police, who shouldered the brunt of the workload (and the criticism) last year--hardly what one ordinarily considers to be the job of the police.

If I get stopped with bottle of Aquafina, will I be charged with being in possession of a controlled substance?

In anticipation of restrictions returning, can you give us the plan for odd and even addresses?

Nyfty,

No change from last year for single family and duplexes, but apartments and commercial properties now have their own specific schedule.

Single Family and Duplexes:
Even: Wednesday, Friday, Sunday
Odd: Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday


Multi-Family (>2) and Commercial:
Sunday, Tuesday, Friday

How about for a managed condo association of multiple duplexes that share a common timed sprinkler system?

According to the media release, the Police will still enforce the watering restrictions with a ticket. Since it's no longer a misdemeanor does that mean a PSO or someone besides an actual Police Officer can write the ticket?

Seems more like the water dept's job now.

You may have dodged the "Water Police" bullet this year, but Freakonomics did a podcast on public shaming that covered how a Texas town dealt with it's water shortage and reporting abuse. Very interesting.
