After tornado, co-owner vows to rebuild

DEXTER, MI — The owners look to begin construction after a March storm completely destroyed this a carwash and Laundromat.

DEXTER, MI — The owner of Village Car Wash and Laundry Inc. is vowing to rebuild, even though the insurance company and county officials seem to be holding up the process, the Dexter Leader reported.

The July 14 story noted that, though final numbers have not been tabulated, the co-owner estimates that the March tornado did approximately $400,000 in damage to the businesses.

The tornado completely destroyed the Laundromat and a storage building. The carwash also lost its roof, and the walls were shifted on the foundation. This damage made the structure completely unusable.

The owners hope to start the rebuilding process in August, but they have yet to find out what the insurance company will cover. They are also waiting for approval from county officials for the design plans of the new buildings.

New designs call for improvements to the aesthetics and function of the buildings, and both will be equipped with LED lights and other technology to reduce energy costs and usage.

The business is in the process of getting bids from contractors, but they afraid to make any commitments because they are unsure what the insurance company will agree to pay.
