San Angelo's Current Surface Water Supplies
The Water Advisory Board did not get an update on San Angelo's above ground water supplies in their last meeting. The Board did not seem concerned about not getting an update from Water Chief Bill Riley. They did take umbrage with not being notified of the $43 million Ford Ranch deal and having to learn about it in the newspaper.
This harkens back to the days of Water Czar Will Wilde when the Water Board was a rubber stamp. The Water Board should know they are not alone. City staff bypassed the Animal Shelter Advisory Committee on ordinance revisions for mandatory micro-chipping and which city staff can issue Animal Control citations.
San Angelo's water bills continue to become more expensive but it's not due to drought level markups. I am grateful for the water sent our way and pray for more.
