California couple warned for having brown lawn

(AP)

A Southern California couple who scaled back watering due to drought received a letter from the city of Glendora warning that they could face fines if they don’t get their brown lawn green again.

The San Gabriel Valley Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1qi7X3o ) the letter from the code enforcement bureau says the dry grass could be a “potential public nuisance problem.” Michael Korte and his wife Laura Whitney are told if they don’t revive the lawn they could be hit with up to $500 in fines and possible criminal action.

City Manager Chris Jeffers says the couple has not been cited and called it a friendly letter prompted by a neighbor’s complaint.

On Tuesday 〞 when the couple received the letter 〞 state regulators authorized fines up to $500 for overwatering lawns.
