Is anyone else incensed by the way the county handles upkeep of the flora and fauna? They cut the grass and only when it gets to the 3 foot height and to top it off, they only cut the first ten feet of it! It’s looking like that documentary "50 years after people" as though we have all become extinct and there is no one to maintain the environment! We pay the highest taxes in the nation.....
