In a special meeting Tuesday, Superintendent of Benicia Schools Janice Adams will ask trustees to help choose a path forward for Benicia Unified School District in the wake of the city’s drought mitigation efforts.
The City Council adopted an emergency outdoor water usage ordinance July 1, amending Title 13 of the Benicia Municipal Code by adding chapter 13.36, the Emergency Outdoor Water Restrictions. Benicians are restricted to watering their yards and landscaping between 7 p.m. and 8 a.m. on certain days, depending on their address.
Homes and commercial addresses with odd numbers may water Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Even-numbered addresses may water Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Nobody may water Sundays.
