[Amended 12-1-1993 by Ord. No. 1993-32]
The Mayor shall determine that a water shortage, constituting an emergency, exists, and notice of such determination shall be duly advertised in a manner and form to constitute legal notice to the residents of the Township. Such advertisement shall constitute a directive to the public to conserve the use of municipal water. Public advertisement may be waived if the emergency situation warrants the same. Under general police powers, the Police Chief shall have the authority to investigate any reputed unnecessary use of such water, and should he determine such use to be unnecessary, the offender shall be summoned before the Municipal Judge and be given a hearing thereupon on charges preferred by the Police Chief. Should such offender be adjudged guilty, he shall be subject to fine not exceeding $1,000 or to imprisonment for a term not exceeding 90 days or to a period of community service not exceeding 90 days, or any combination thereof.
