Mobile Businesses

Mobile businesses are required to properly manage water used to prevent pollutants from entering the storm drain system.  Our storm drain system drains directly to the Lake.

Mobile businesses include:

  • Mobile auto washing/detailling
  • Equipment washing/cleaning
  • Carpet, drape and furniture cleaning
  • Mobile high pressure or steam cleaning of parking lots and sidewalks

Mobile businesses that perform work within the City limits are required to obtain a business license and are governed by the City's Municipal Code and Ordinances.
