A Waterville, Maine car wash is under fire after residents near the proposed site say they’re concerned the business model would attract vagrants and drug users given its 24/7 operation. The owner of the site said he plans to build Yellow Dog Car Wash so that it can operate around the clock without employees.

Anyone looking to wash their canine or their car could visit to use the premises and pay a machine, CentralMaine.com reports. The current site has a vacant building on the property. The owner of Yellow Dog would need to get the city to approve a rezoning for a car wash business before he could rebuild on the site.

But residents say they’re worried the operation would also cause icy roads in the winter as water runs off from washes. Council members tasked with making a decision say they’re torn between making residents happy and bringing much-needed business to Waterville.
