Cary water cutoff hurts the cash register

The tap water is flowing in Cary again, but it kept the cash drawers empty at the city's resturants. Cary ordered all resturants closed Friday night due to the detection of bacteria in its water supply. Eateries remained closed through the weekend, getting the ok to reopen late Sunday. A Wake County revenue official estimated Cary's food service industry lost $5 to $6 million in business, which means a loss of just under a half-million dollars in county and state tax coffers.

Call it a result of growth. Hope some lessons were learned.
