Residents and city officials recently gathered at Central Park right in the heart of downtown for a “potty party.”
A ribbon cutting ceremony marked the opening of public restrooms at the facility for year-round use.
Residents Bette and Ken Kalina petitioned in 2011 for the installation at Central Park, gathering more than 1,000 signatures from supporters of the project.
The new restrooms on the west side of the park were built to replace portable toilets that have been available only during summer concerts.
City council members approved the $247,850 contract in March. The funds are included in the city’s current capital improvements budget.
