Operator approaches city about expensive water
WYOMING, IL — The operator of a recently renovated carwash approached the City Council here to ask for quantity financial breaks because of high water usage, The Stark County News reported.
The Jan. 18 story stated that Mike Rumbold was told by the city via contractual agreements on water upgrades that there were no financial breaks available.
Rumbold let the city know that water will be the biggest cost associated with his carwash, and it was his intent to keep the rates as low as possible, the story noted.
The council and Rumbold then discussed Tax Increment Financing (TIF) monies to help offset the cost, according to the story.
The renovated wash received many upgrades, and it was winterized to operate at temperatures above 20 degrees, the story stated.
