“So tired of Yelm and how it makes it’s residence pick up their slack.
First it was irrigation cutbacks and then fines for going over set water allotments.
In one month Of July our development here in yelm even after changing all the irrigation heads to low flow we used up half our allotment forcing us to shut off the water in fear we would have to pay serious penalties.
I dont think I will be buying my next home in Yelm.
P.S. We need another coffee place in Yelm like we need a mexican restaurant! ”

” Yelm is getting even more ridiculous than its ever been!”
Why is a whole new water system being built 2 miles from the current water system and on the backs of Yelm’s water rate payers?
Why was this question NEVER raised in the NVN’s story about the 235% water connection fee increase? Afterall, they have the Water System Plan (WSP) and can see all of these facts for themselves.
Where is the desire to do the right thing on the part of Yelm’s leaders?
