18 months left on pub­lic toi­let lease

Bray People - - NEWS -

WICKLOW Town Coun­cil only has an­other 18 months to go be­fore a lease cost­ing over €30,000 a year for a pub­lic toi­let runs out.

The toi­let sit­u­ated on Church Street will cost €39,072 to op­er­ate dur­ing 2013, with the 20 year lease fi­nally run­ning out in the mid­dle of 2014.

Speak­ing at Wed­nes­day’s bud­get meet­ing, Town Clerk He­len Pur­cell, said she had looked into wether it was fi­nan­cially vi­able to try and buy out the re­main­der of the con­tract. ‘It’s a 20 year lease. I did look to see how much it would cost to buy it out and was told €109,389. Bear­ing in mind it is only here for an­other 18 months I didn’t think that fig­ure was vi­able.
