Karl Nurse calls for water conservation



ST. PETERSBURG-- City council member Karl Nurse will call for greater water conservation today during his first news conference since he was appointed to office in April.

Nurse will discuss landscaping options to reduce water and call on the city to set the example and reduce its water use. The move comes days after Nurse's green commitment was questioned by some environmental activists oppssed to the city's recent annexation of a commercial district in Tierra Verde.

The event is scheduled for 10 a.m. at the Nelson Apartments at 430 5th Street N, which Nurse owns.

Ray Wunderlich, of the Florida Native Plant Society, and Bruce Turley, of the Wilcox Nursery, will also be there.
