‘Occupy Houston’ protestors and HPD maintain uneasy truce – Kevin Reece, KHOU-11 News

The protesters, by their own count numbering about 150, now have their own makeshift library, large containers to grow vegetables and a full-size refrigerator powered by extension cords plugged into public outlets inside the park.

Can someone explain to me why the Parker Administration is paying for these squatters to have electricity for their full-size refrigerator while the same Parker Administration is squeezing every last penny out of the 53% (fee increases, water rate increases, rain tax)?
