Only In CA: Couple Following Water Conservation Rules Faces Fine For Brown Yard

A Southern California couple who say they followed emergency statewide orders to conserve water due to the state’s drought now face a potential fine. For having a brown yard. Uh-huh.

Mike Korte told the hosts of “Fox and Friends” Saturday:

“We were following the orders of the state government and our consciences and reduced our watering, and the city government decided to fine us. We also face criminal actions for having a brown lawn.”
And the response from Glendora City Manager Chris Jeffers?

“When staff determined that the home was occupied but on the verge of violating the maintenance standards, they left a flier just reminding them that we can conserve and have a wonderful landscaped property that helps achieve conservation.”
