What's Up?


Q: What's up when the water restrictions don't allow residents to wash their cars in their driveways, but car dealerships in town are still washing the cars on their lots?

A: "They use high pressure washers at the car dealerships -- and at the car washes -- which are permitted," said Public Works Director Buzz Walker. He explained it is a mechanical device attached to a hose. Using a power washer, 80 to 90 percent less water is used. "They run about $100 and can be bought at home improvement stores or over the Internet," Walker said.
