The Cost of Public Toilets

I always say that public toilets are one of the best things about this country but I never knew the whole story:

Million-dollar public bathrooms are a growing controversy outside the big cities too. In upstate New York, Mayor Rick Davis of Tonawanda, a Democrat, came under fire for a “million-dollar bathroom”. The Democrat claimed that he was creating “a real community asset for generations”. In Pensacola Beach, there was outrage over the $1 million cost of a 900 square foot public bathroom. In Westport, Washington, there were protests and petitions over a plan to build an $840,000 bathroom. . .

A Santa Monica park restroom recently came in at $2.3 million. The city manager blamed fair-wage guidelines and an OSHA audit. But Santa Monica was already the home of some of the country’s priciest bathrooms. A Sacramento public bathroom for the homeless was estimated to cost as much as $1 million. In San Diego, residents tried to fight a million-dollar beach bathroom.

One thought on “The Cost of Public Toilets”

  1. Multiple toilets and sinks, along with reliable plumbing, should be the main criterion.
    And good construction and craftsmanship when building, with quality materials used.
    Anything else is but a bunch of shit (pardon the pun).
