The main goal is to improve the offer of traditional local dishes, drinks and products in the daily offer of catering facilities and on that basis a more meaningful development of eno-gastronomic tourism.The main goal is to mark and build a strong market recognition of restaurants with standards “Tastes” and their identity as a place that guarantees and provides a true experience of local dishes, drinks and local traditional products. The “Tastes” standard is actually the construction of a common identity for the experience of local dishes, drinks and products, with a kind of promise to guests that there is a daily offer of traditional dishes and drinks in the marked facility.The standard can be awarded to a catering facility that usually operates for at least three years and meets the established minimum requirements set by the ordinance: to have at least two local traditional dishes and six beverage labels in the daily offer, of which at least four are wines, and to which is carried out in five categories: Food, Service, Drink, Ambience, Environment) achieves a minimum of 75 out of a possible 100 points.Great story and concept, but unfortunately poor realization.Just organizing a special offer in catering facilities is not enough for the whole project to be self-sustainable and to develop further. Great form, but poor content. This should be just the finale of the whole project, which is accompanied by various other events based on local gastronomy and tradition. Of course accompanied by strong promotion, both local to activate and raise awareness of the local population, and in the city of Zagreb as the primary market.Certainly good foundations and support for the project, but the whole story should be raised to a much higher level and quality of performance.last_img read more

Lacey Alternate Watering Schedule Begins June 1

first_imgSubmitted by The City of LaceyLacey water customers will follow an alternate day watering schedule for their yards and outdoor landscapes beginning Monday, June 1, 2015. Alternate day watering is mandatory for all Lacey water customers during the months of June, July, August, and September.The Lacey City Council approved the watering policy in 2006, as an effort to reduce peak water demand during the summer. Lacey’s water usage has exceeded 13 million gallons per day during summer months compared with only five million gallons per day in the winter.Water customers with addresses ending with an odd number (i.e., 1, 3, 5, 7, & 9) may water Saturday, Monday, and Wednesday. Addresses ending with an even number (i.e., 0, 2, 4, 6, & 8) may water on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Friday is a non-watering day for all Lacey water customers.Scheduled watering applies to turf (grass), annual and perennial ornamental flowerbeds, vegetable gardens, and any other landscaping plant material that is regularly maintained outside of a residence or commercial building. Water used for other purposes such as pools, pressure washing, outdoor potted plants, hanging baskets, and plants inside greenhouses are not currently restricted by this policy. Lacey water customers failing to follow the alternate day watering schedule will receive a warning. Repeated violations could ultimately lead to service being discontinued.The water policy does allow limited exemptions. For example, newly seeded lawns, newly installed landscapes, and publicly-owned facilities with active playfields may be watered more frequently. To obtain an exemption under the alternate day watering schedule, customers must contact Lacey Water Resources.On May 15, 2015 Governor Inslee declared a drought emergency for Washington State. Lacey does not anticipate water shortages in the near future nor does it anticipate a need to enforce water conservation measures or place restrictions on water use because of the 2015 drought emergency. Regardless, Lacey Water Resources encourages all of its customers to conserve water both indoors and outdoors. Lacey Water Resources requires all customers to follow the odd-even watering policy, which is designed to limit peak water demand, June 1 through September 30.For more information regarding the alternate day watering policy, please contact Lacey Water Resources at (360) 438-2687, or by email at Information is also available on the city’s website at Facebook201Tweet0Pin0last_img read more
