They are doing nothing that I’ve seen to police their customers playing their stereos at max over the car wash noise. This is very disruptive for us, the residential area right next to the car wash. I hear from a neighbor that he and others are also very disturbed by this excessive noise. And they never answer their phone (425-227-7032). Hopefully, the city of Renton will start ticketing the violators, although I would think Rainbow Car Wash should also have some culpability in this. I was very happy to see the following in the Renton council meeting minutes:
Public Safety Committee
Public Safety Committee Chair Law presented a report regarding the ordinance
on criminal penalties, civil penalties, and nuisances. The ordinance was
substantially reworked to streamline it, to remove outdated sections, and to
acknowledge the shift from civil penalties to criminal penalties, necessitated by
the court's high standing to obtain search warrants. Code enforcement staff
made a number of suggestions to make enforcement easier and to provide code
language to more easily resolve some common complaints. Finally, a section
was added to the noise ordinance dealing with the citizens' complaints about
extremely loud noise.
The Committee recommended that Council adopt the ordinance on criminal
penalties, civil penalties, and nuisances. MOVED BY LAW, SECONDED BY
PERSSON, COUNCIL CONCUR IN THE COMMITTEE REPORT.
