DEPUTY mayor Ian North is disappointed that some people are flouting the water restrictions, and so am I.
Like many others, I spent a lot of money landscaping and installing an irrigation system, and now I am virtually looking at a wasteland.
However, I can see where these people are coming from when I see the hypocrisy of this Bathurst Regional Council.
Rather than lead by example it is a case of do as I say, not as I do.
Why are we squandering water by irrigating the parks instead of diverting this water to the treatment plant?
By what measure are the parks more important than our gardens?
We have had visitors ask why they have seen the sprinklers going when we are supposedly in drought.
