Writer calls for more pub­lic bath­rooms in Bri­gus

The Compass - - OPINION - — Jim His­cock writes from Bri­gus

Well, don’t come to Bri­gus if you want to use the bath­room.

The town has sup­plied signs to di­rect people to the Fire Hall when the Blue­berry Fes­ti­val is on, and then we don’t know where to go un­less you want to pay to get on the grounds.

I think the coun­cil should con­sider the vis­i­tors to Bri­gus and erect or con­sider rent­ing por­ta­ble toi­lets to place where needed. The beach and the Tun­nel should be No. 1 on the list.

We have a con­stant flow of vis­i­tors to this area for pic­nics and beach play. The coun­cil wants to of­fer these vis­i­tors a sign to di­rect you to the near­est re­stroom .

So, get ready to pack up what­ever you and your fam­ily are en­joy­ing and take the per­son, along with the rest, to the re­strooms, ex­cept for the Blue­berry Fes­ti­val, you will have to pay then.

The cost of this should not be con­sid­ered, but it is al­most a health risk, as a lot of people now use the small woods by the beach. Not good.

Even Clarke’s Beach, Cupids, etc. of­fer por­ta­ble toi­lets, so what’s wrong with our coun­cil?

Do they not ever go to the beach and see people en­joy­ing these grounds? But sorry if you need to use the bath­room. Fol­low the signs.

Come on coun­cil, you were elected to con­sider all im­prove­ments to our town and vis­i­tors. A por­ta­ble toi­let on the beach would be use­ful to all res­i­dents and vis­i­tors, and not have them pack up to go to the toi­let.

The cost of this should not be con­sid­ered, but it is al­most a health risk, as a lot of people now use the small woods by the beach. Not good.

Don’t wait for your next meet­ing but talk to your mem­bers now.

They are needed now, not when the sum­mer is over.

I can’t be­lieve the coun­cil have no need to use the bath­room when out walk­ing or vis­it­ing other towns.

Come one Coun­cil, smarten up!
