City threatens carwash’s business license

QUINCY, MA — An absentee manager almost gets his controversial self-serve location shut down.

QUINCY, MA — After a carwash manager would not respond to any communications, the Board of License Commissioners hosted a hearing to potentially revoke the business’s license, reported.

The Aug. 31 story stated that the coin-operated wash managed by Anthony Ruscito has been open for 40 years, and in 2009, noise complaints caused the wash’s hours to be scaled back to 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Even so, neighbors are now saying that the noise has become constant once again. The machinery is beeping, the dryers run late into the night and leaf blowing begins at 6 a.m.

Neighbors of the wash contacted the Board of License Commissioners, and though Ruscito was sent many letters, he did not attend the business license hearing or respond to phone calls. Ruscito also failed to attend meetings with neighbors about the noise.

“He has shown zero willingness to [cooperate]… and he’s refused to work with the city as a whole. I think it’s unfortunate that there is a business before you that you are…contemplating someone’s business license. It’s a serious thing to contemplate. I wish we weren’t in this situation. I wish he responded and worked with us,” Ward 4 Councilor Brian Palmucci said in the article.

Palmucci asked for a temporary suspension of the wash’s business license, but Ruscito did make an appearance at the city clerk’s office the next day. Ruscito agreed to attend a follow-up hearing on Sept. 11, and the suspension was stayed.
