Water restrictions

Ronald from Massey

Dear council, I haven't washed my car since you told us we were short of water. You also told us you were ordering restrictions, fair enough. However do you want to explain to me why I have just driven down Lincoln Rd in Henderson and saw that the wash depot. A commercially run vehicle wash station is fully operational, every wash bay was full with happy citizens cleaning their vehicles. Did you all go to the same school as the halfwits that have advised us on social distancing and other ways to manage Covid. Or is it one rule for some and another for the rest of us. Either we are short of water or we aint.
