JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — New legislation has been drafted to regulate “mop-and-bucket” carwashes, according to jaxdailyrecord.com.

Council member Denise Lee was concerned about the washes contributing to crime and affecting local residents, stated the article.

“We need to try and regulate the mop-and-bucket carwashes,” Lee said in the article. “Sometimes, there are no cars being washed, but there are 13 or 14 people hanging around.”

Most commercial washes are regulated under a current city ordinance, but it does not address the mop-and-bucket businesses, noted the article. One issue is the proper disposal of wastewater.

According to Lee, the new ordinance’s passage is a priority. “We are going to get this legislation done before we leave on July 1,” she shared in the article.
