By Brian Barton | Point of View
My point of view is the residents of Rio Verde moved into a town that has no water district or company! They have been getting water from Scottsdale for an awful long time!
During this time, the residents have been arguing with each other or putting off the fact, they need water! Residents with horse properties arguing that they have wells and getting water from that would reduce their well water!
Everyone wants something for nothing! They are not paying taxes like I am in the city of Scottsdale. A water company that serves Fountain Hills (EPCOR) offered to be the water supplier but that was turned down by the Arizona Corporation Commission.
Do not blame Scottsdale for Rio Verde for not having water! You did this to yourselves!
