Re: “Dying Tree City USA

Colorado Springs Utilities has proposed a way to water more city parks this year for the same budget amount. The pilot program would cut the water rate by one-third for the largest, most used parks if they meet water-efficiency goals. See our proposal to Utilities Board here: http://www.csu.org/business/prices/options…

While we would like to provide free water to the municipal government's parks, doing so would violate legal bond agreements. Without these bond covenants that have been in place for decades, Colorado Springs Utilities, and ultimately customers, would pay millions of dollars more each year in interest rates.

Re: “The golden years

This article seems very one-sided. Seems to me it's a good business decision to use part-time, temporary labor to fill in gaps in order to eliminate 200 full-time, ongoing positions. There's probably a big savings for the utilities department in the long run.
