The Dom Post reports:
Staff at National Party headquarters have been told to observe council water conservation measures after a garden sprinkler was used in an apparent breach of council rules.
Party manager Greg Hamilton confirmed the sprinkler was running yesterday and said he would remind staff about water restrictions. …
The council’s restrictions allow watering only between 6am and 8am, and 7pm and 9pm. The unattended sprinkler was spotted running at about 8.10am.
I await the call for a commission of inquiry into Watergate!
“As far as the city council is concerned it doesn’t matter if the property is residential or commercially rated. Even if it does have a meter, it doesn’t mean people can start watering when others can’t,” he said.
The challenge is that the allowed hours are not hours when someone will be at a commercial property.
