A. The Director, in consultation with the City Manager, will declare a stage of water use reduction by public declaration and will publish the declaration a minimum of one time in a daily newspaper or a weekly publication of general circulation. The declaration may include water-use restrictions and other measures ordered by the Director as allowed by this article or the drought management plan. Applicable restrictions take effect and are enforceable on publication of the announcement; except that restrictions due to water treatment or delivery system failure, or unforeseen sudden increases in demand for water, are enforceable immediately following the filing of intent with the office of the City Clerk. All declarations will also be publicly available on the City’s website.
B. Termination of a stage of water use reduction will be effective on publication of notice of termination in a daily newspaper or weekly publication of general circulation. The notice of termination of a stage of water use reduction will also be publicly available on the City’s website. (Ord. No. G-6741, § 2 (Exh. A), 2020)
