In the latest chapters of City Council Member Don Zimmerman’s war against high water rates and the ongoing battle to stay in Austin’s headlines forever and ever, the District 6 Council member is now urging Austinites to “Show Us Your Manhole.” On Facebook, the absurdly named campaign describes its call to action this way: “The City of Austin is not reading the water meters throughout Austin and using algorithms to calculate bills. Show us your undisturbed water meter manhole!” Zimmerman shared the page on his own Facebook page, asking constituents for photos.
