The Los Angeles County supervisors have been washing their take-home cars up to three times a week despite a crippling California drought, and one supervisor has been using two vehicles, according to several media reports.
Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas has one of his Chrysler 300 Limited sedans washed an average of 2.7 times per week in 2014 despite a state mandate that local agencies cut water use by 25 percent, reports the Daily News. Ridley-Thomas upped the washes to 3.1 times a week in April following the mandate.
Ridley-Thomas has also come under scrutiny for using two Chrysler 300 Limited sedans, according to a separate Daily News report.
Two other supervisors, Michael Antonovich and Don Knabe, washed their take-home SUVs about two times a week. The two newest supervisors, Sheila Kuehl and Hilda Solis, wash their cars once a week.
Other southern California cities such as Long Beach, Santa Monica, and Burbank have pledged to stop washing their cars for two months.
