Jan. 12, 2010 -- Col. Charles Beck, commander, 45th Mission Support Group, presided over the grand opening of the new Base Car Wash at a ribbon cutting ceremony last Tuesday, Jan. 12, at 2 p.m.
The totally new touch-free car washing system a G5 LaserWash, is made possible by a $154,000 Air Force Space Command Non-Appropriated Fund Grant.
The new system is able to wash every type of vehicle, as it does not require a floor treadle to activate the wash cycle and there are no side rails.
New signage is customer friendly and eliminates confusion, making the system much easier to use.
"Patrons will be able to use their MasterCard or VISA credit and debit cards at the upgraded facility," said Ms. Nancy Wilberg, 45th Force Support Squadron's Arts & Crafts Director, who is responsible for the car wash facility.
"Even if you do not have any cash on hand, you can still get a great wash for your privately owned, government or NAF vehicle. GSA vehicle operators can use the WEX card on the G5 LaserWash side."
The cost to use the G5 LaserWash is very reasonable. Patrons can opt for a $5, $6 or a $7 top of the line wash prices that are substantially lower than comparable off-base car wash facilities. For details about the upgraded facility, call Ms. Wilberg at 494-4270.
