This puts the city seven percent under its 28 percent conservation mandate as set by the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB).Recent rains are not enough to reach our goal,” the report said. “City officials are urging everyone to conserve more water during this critical time.”In spite of the drop, PWP said the community has made “significant strides” with water conservation, saving more than 1.5 billion gallons of water since June 2015.According to SWRCB mandates, cities must reach and maintain their water conservation goals from June 1, 2015 through February 28, 2016, or face fines of $10,000 a day. Pasadena’s mandated 28 percent goal means it must save 2.3 billion gallons of water.PWP posts a weekly status report of the water conservation effort on the city’s website, www.cityofpasadena.net, and displays it on KPAS during the weekly City Council meetings.Residents, visitors and businesses are encouraged to report water wastage by calling the Pasadena Citizen Service Center at (626) 744-7311 or reporting online at www.cityofpasadena.net/csc.

first_imgFind out more about the public call in the attachment. “We announced a public call for support for TOP events in 2020 already in December this year, with the aim of leaving all interested parties enough time for quality project preparation and application. I am sure that this time we will receive a large number of applications, which will be an additional confirmation of the continuous development and improvement of the overall Croatian tourist offer with an emphasis on events as one of the main motives for coming to the destination.” stated the director of the CNTB Kristjan Staničić, adding that investments in facilities and infrastructure are a basic precondition for positioning Croatia as an attractive year-round destination. Legal and natural persons, ie companies, crafts, cooperatives, public institutions, cultural institutions, artistic organizations, local and regional self-government units and tourist boards may apply for the public invitation. The approved funds are intended for the costs of organizing events, such as rental of equipment, space and means of transport, procurement of materials, accommodation costs, contractor fees, promotional and other organizational activities.  Grants are approved for the organization and realization of cultural, entertainment, eno-gastronomic, historical and traditional events that have been held at least twice in the last five years and have a strong promotional effect in the country and abroad. Also, the Tourist Board of the CNTB may exceptionally decide to support the event that is being held for the first time, and it is expected that it will greatly enrich the tourist offer of the destination. According to the CNTB, all nominated events will be evaluated through criteria such as importance for creating the motive for the arrival of guests, importance for the development of destination tourist offer and promotion of Croatia abroad, the nature of the event, content and quality, period and media advertising plan. . The Croatian National Tourist Board has announced a public call for support for TOP events, through which grants will be awarded in 2020 to TOP events in Croatia, which are the main motive for tourists to come to the destination.  The call was issued with the aim of promoting Croatia as a tourist destination, strengthening the strength of the brand and creating a recognizable image of Croatian tourism, as well as product improvement and content development that extend the tourist season and increase traffic, especially in the pre- and postseason.

India rejects Pakistan cricket series

first_imgINDIA on Monday ruled out any cricket series against Pakistan until “cross-border terrorism” stops.The Indian and Pakistani cricket boards are scheduled to meet in Dubai on Monday to discuss a possible bilateral series. And the two countries play each other at the Champions Trophy in England on June 4.But they have not played a bilateral series in India or Pakistan since 2012.India’s sports minister Vijay Goel said: “India, Pakistan cannot play bilateral series till cross-border terror from Pakistan (stops).”“Terror and sports cannot go hand in hand,” Goel told reporters, referring to India’s accusations against Pakistan in the disputed Kashmir region.“BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) should first talk to the government before giving any proposal to Pakistan.”While bilateral series remain frozen, their clashes on the international stage, such as at the Champions Trophy, create high anticipation.“We have no control on multi-national games and events,” Goel said.According to a Memorandum of Understanding signed by the BCCI and its Pakistan counterpart the two sides have to play six series between 2015 and 2023.However, India did not tour Pakistan and even refused a neutral venue in 2015. The possibility of India hosting their neighbours this year also looks bleak with political tensions over Kashmir on the boil.The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has threatened to take legal action against the BCCI if the memorandum is not honoured, but it is still ready for dialogue.BCCI acting secretary Amitabh Choudhary has made it clear that India “remains committed to playing”, but the “series cannot go ahead without the permission of the Indian government”.
