Westlake car wash resurrected
After many months hidden behind tall grass and dead branches, a beautiful brick building got a new lifeline. In 2017 the Westlake Laser Wash, at the corner of Center Ridge and Bradley roads (behind the beverage store) started accumulating garbage in its cans and showing lack of soap quality in its washes.
It wasn’t long after that the city cleaned up the garbage, cut the grass and closed off the apron with orange barrels. The reality was that the owner had sadly passed away.
This past summer, a neighboring Westlake resident, Michael Boukzam, became determined to bring life back to the property. After a long process with the courts, the transfer occurred on Dec. 26, 2018; it was a nice Christmas. Since then, the equipment went through an overhaul and all of the previous products were replaced with the best available.
Plans are in place for a Westlake Planning Commission hearing for new signage and an American flag display. Spring promises to bring clean landscaping and many improvements.
The wash is currently operating with plans of a Grand Opening ceremony – including free washes and a donut truck – after installation of the new road sign.
