On Tuesday, June 9, the City Council of Orange, CA, adopted the Fiscal Year 2015-2016 budget. The new fiscal year will see the City's finances again in-balance, with revenues above expenditures for the fourth consecutive year since the start of the economic crisis in 2007.
As a result of steady economic growth and fiscally responsible management, the new budget does not include raising City fees or taxes for residents or businesses in Orange.

By now you should be familiar with the water restrictions (click here to see them) that have been placed upon Orange Water customers as a result of the State Mandated reductions in response to the severe drought.
Around Orange, you may have driven by a park that has had its sprinklers on during the day, or walked passed an Orange Unified School District campus that was watering a field on a Monday. You, like a good many others, were probably thinking, "Aren't we in a drought? Don't they have to cut water too? If I can’t water on Monday, why can they?"
These are very good questions. Fortunately, there are also good answers.
