The weather continues with the hot and dry days that seem to be in endless supply. I am very pleased to note that most everyone has been understanding and cooperative with the more restrictive water conservations measures. The city has had to warn only one person to follow the watering schedule in the past two weeks, and I am pleased that so many residents have worked with us to prevent water wastage. As a reminder, we are requiring outdoor watering to be only once a week for each area of your yard and more importantly insisting that you water only between 7:00 pm and 9:00 am. We hope you understand that watering with sprinklers during the hot times of the day only allows much more of the water to evaporate and does your yard very little good. And most importantly, we are concerned that only really necessary water usage is for the yards, trees and plantings around town and that it is critical we conserve our water resources for the people of our community in this drought time. Other towns in the Hill Country are in a truly critical stage of water rationing and we do not anticipate Mason will need to move to that restrictive stage, but we do rely on our residents to conserve water so that we will continue to have enough for all the true needs around town. The next few days will be particularly festive around Mason with the annual Round-up activities. To our friends, relatives and visitors we welcome you back to the very best hometown in Texas and hope that you have a wonderful weekend. To all of our residents, I hope that you can adjust your time and patience to participate in all the activities that interest you and that the crowds, the parade and the extra traffic are not too bothersome. The Round-up Parade and Rodeo, along with the other special things to do around town, make for one of the very special times and ways that our community shines as a great hometown. I hope all of our residents can come out and enjoy the fun and welcome everyone to our corner of the Hill Country. Mason is truly a wonderful town to live and work in, and this time of summer makes it a specially good hometown to relax, enjoy and play in. Your friend and neighbor, Brent Hinckley
