This is the true story of one unfortunate couple from southern California.
A young couple from Glendora, California, recently realized that they could get a $500 fine regardless of what they to do their lawn. Since Glendora officials aren’t fond with scorched brown lawns, since they apparently ruin the ideal scenery of the city, they’ve decided to put a $500 fine on anyone that doesn’t want to take care of his/her lawn. In order to avoid the fining, Michael Korte and his partner Laura Whitney started watering their lawn two times a week. Unfortunately, they can still get fined the solid $500, if they overwater it. Around 80% of the state is suffering from the extreme conditions of the severe summer drought and water is a crucial resource right now. However, the town’s officials still want Glendora to look presentable enough.
According to another state official, however, the brown lawn should be seen as honorable, since it means the residents are more concerned about the state and the planet rather than their tiny piece of land.
