SAN JOSE (KCBS) – When it comes to reducing water use during the drought, one Santa Clara County supervisor is of the opinion that local government departments are not doing enough.
Santa Clara County Supervisor Dave Cortese, who is also a candidate for mayor in San Jose, said he has concerns about the way government is using water.
“I’m calling for a mandatory 25 percent reduction in all county operations,” Cortese said. “This is a big operation, 700 individual pieces of property, 15,000 employees, and a $4 billion budget. I think if we can cut our water usage down by 25 percent, it will set a good example for the rest of the community.”
