“People in (hotdish) Hell Want Ice Water”…

icewaterhellIt seems the big headlines in HotDish Hell, MN lately is “water, water, water”. Why? Well, it seems our city council doesn’t really know how to manage our utilities, or how to listen to other people’s suggestions.

The city is building a brand new water treatment plant on the site of the old elementary school. Billiam H. Fudd Elementary. While the building was being proposed (costing tax payers upwards of 5.2 million or so $$) an argument ensued regarding taking surface water (ie: the lakes) or from ground water aquifer. Because the plant is designed to treat surface water, they rejected the economical and environmentally conscious idea of using ground water.

icewaterhelldroughtLast year we were in a drought and the city imposed a water ban with threat of fines up to $500 if using city water to wash cars or water lawns. Because the citizens of HotDish Hell obeyed the ban and were very conscientious of their water use, the city actually lost money and had to jack the utility rates by 12% this year. (i know, penalize the people for conserving water and obeying an imposed ban, nice!)

The city council was also expecting an increase in housing and icewaterhellhomerpopulation. But there are no jobs here to attract outside people to move here. People here in Hotdish Hell house swap, they don’t build new. But the city had requested from the DNR to get permission to withdraw more water from the lakes and now that there is no population growth, a drought, and lower water levels on the lakes; the DNR is saying “no”, and leaving it up to the state of Minnesota.

Council members are now scratching their heads thinking “hmmm, maybe we shoulda thought about ground water?”

    Sounds like Hotdish is in serious need of a town council makeover. Zombies should come in handy once they attack the town hall. But I’m not sure if they’ll find any brains worth gulping down. Oh, well, maybe the aliens will look after the town council and will do to them what the zombies won’t!
