Matamata Chronicle - - Front Page -

It has been mooted by the Mata­mata-Pi­ako Dis­trict Coun­cil that a charge to use the pub­lic toi­lets in He­tana street and Wa­haroa may be put in place.

Win­tec jour­nal­ism stu­dent Evie Marinkovich hit the streets to find out what peo­ple thought.

Do you use the pub­lic toi­lets? I try not to.

What do you think about a pos­si­ble charge be­ing put on the toi­lets? It’s c..p. It’s not on re­ally. If the coun­cil needs to make money they need to make it a dif­fer­ent way.

Would you use them was a charge? No.

Do you use the pub­lic toi­lets? On the odd oc­ca­sion, yes.

What do you think about a pos­si­ble charge be­ing put on the toi­lets? I think it would prob­a­bly be a good thing with all the tourist buses that come through. I think it’s used more by them than the com­mu­nity.

Would you use them if there was a charge? If I had to, yes.

Do you use the pub­lic toi­lets? Yes, some­times.

What do you think about a pos­si­ble charge be­ing put on the toi­lets? That’s not a good idea. They’re giv­ing a fa­cil­ity to the peo­ple and if they’re giv­ing a fa­cil­ity they shouldn’t charge. We al­ready pay rents, rates, ev­ery­thing. Would you use them if there was a charge? I don’t know.

Do you use the pub­lic toi­lets? No.

Would you use them if there was a charge? Yes I would.

Do you use the pub­lic toi­lets? I have, yes.

What do you think about a poss- ible charge be­ing put on the toi­lets? I’d rather have them free, I guess if they can’t keep them go­ing any other way then they have to.

Would you use them if there was a charge? I’d prob­a­bly avoid it and use an­other toi­let that’s free.

Do you use the pub­lic toi­lets? No.
