  On Monday evening, January 13, 2014, the City Council of the City of Solvang adopted a Resolution declaring a Stage One Drought Condition per City Code Section 9-3D-3. On January 17, 2014 Governor Brown declared a statewide drought emergency requesting all Californians reduce water usage by 20%. In response, the Solvang City Council modified it's Stage One Drought Declaration on February 10, 2014. The modified Stage One Drought Declaration took effect February 11, 2014 and includes the following regulations for all Solvang water customers:
~ All restaurants that provide table service shall post, in a conspicuous place, a notice of drought condition and shall refrain from serving water except upon specific request by a customer.
~ Operators of hotels, motels, and other commercial establishments offering lodging shall post in each room a notice of drought condition containing water conservation information; and a separate notice with a message similar to the following:

Sheets and towels are customarily changed between guests. If you feel your sheets need to be changed, please leave this card on your pillow each morning. If you feel your towels need to be change, please leave them on the floor of the bath room each morning. Housekeeping will be pleased to accommodate you.
