    Restaurants and hotels were given the go-ahead to open today at 3 p.m. provided they have enough water pressure to flush toilets and boil water for consumption.

    Hotels were given instructions not to use ice machines.

    “We’re keenly aware of the burden we placed on businesses, especially with the downturn in the economy,” Assistant City Manager Robert Hanna said in a 4 p.m. press conference. “The more people work with us to refrain from using water, the quicker we can lower the restrictions.”
