City to defend its Turf…
I wrote a post earlier today entitled “San Carlos doesn’t want turf. What about new taxes?” in which I published the results of the recent poll regarding installing synthetic turf at Highlands Park. Talk about timing…not only do some of the residents not want turf at Highlands, apparently they’re willing to sue the City to make sure it doesn’t happen. The City of San Carlos announced today that it is being sued by a local group over its decision to replace the grass surface at Highlands Park with a synthetic, all-weather surface. Click here for the press release with all of the details:
The other cleat drops…
This announcement should come as a surprise to probably no one. The anti-turf group in San Carlos has been so well organized and vocal against the installation of synthetic turf that you somehow knew they weren’t going to take the City Council’s recent turf approval lying down. They didn’t.
Regardless of whether you’re for or against the installation of turf, it makes one wonder how a cash-strapped city will be able to pay for legal fees to defend itself. There’s no such thing as a cheap lawsuit. Consider a quote from today’s San Jose Mercury News about lawsuits:
“They’re expensive. I haven’t found a low-priced lawyer yet that’s any good”
