Water dumping on golf courses

To the Editor:

The retention ponds are at capacity forcing The Villages to pump water on the golf courses which floods and closes the courses.
Why doesn’t The Villages give some “relief” to each home owner via their irrigation fees and allow them to water their lawns for a period of time without being charged for irrigation?
This would certainly help eliminate the excessive water buildup in the retention ponds.
