Whenever the Council determines that a shortage of water supply threatens the city, it may, by resolution, limit the times and hours during which city water may be used for sprinkling, irrigating, car washing, air conditioning or other specified uses. After publication of the resolution or two days after the mailing of the resolution to each customer, no person shall use or permit water to be used in violation of the resolution and any customer who does so shall be charged a fee as set by City Council from time to time for each day of violation, and the charge shall be added to the customer’s next water bill. If the emergency requires immediate compliance with terms of the resolution, the Council may provide for the delivery of a copy of the resolution to the premises of each customer, and any customer who has received the notice and thereafter uses or permits water to be used in violation of the resolution shall be subject to the charge provided.
