Well, this story probably has a few sides to it.
Still, interesting use of the police time...
Also, interesting-seeming city ordinance, though I'd have to read it to be sure of my questioning.
It's in the nineties all week in Odem, Utah, with July just starting. A tad warm for insisting on green lawns in the hot dry west, re water usage.
Woman jailed for 'neglected' lawn
Good grief. People should be jailed for OVER-watering. (A neighbor had their sprinkler on all day -- yes ALL day -- recently. I thought maybe they forgot about it and was weighing whether I should go turn it off to be neighborly when the neighbor calmly walked out, repositioned it, and went back inside. Repositioning happened a few more times. ALL day. <shaking head>)
I'll admit to being feisty about use of lawns in hot dry areas. I stopped doing landscape design for housing tracts almost a couple of decades back because of planning guidelines for lawns in arid places.
