New loo to be in Pu­taruru car park

South Waikato News - - NEWS -

South Waikato District Coun­cil hopes Pu­taruru res­i­dents are not sur­prised when their new pub­lic toi­lets are in­stalled.

On Thurs­day the coun­cil’s Cor­po­rate and En­vi­ron­ment Com­mit­tee voted to ap­prove the pub­lic toi­lets with Main St as the site for the fa­cil­i­ties.

In late 2009 the coun­cil in­stalled toi­lets in Pu­taruru’s me­mo­rial park, lead­ing to com­plaints from the com­mu­nity and the block’s even­tual re­moval.

The lo­ca­tion of the new toi­lets was the sub­ject of much pub­lic­ity and the coun­cil con­sulted on it for five weeks.

The toi­lets will be in the north-west corner of the car park. Sew­er­age sys­tems run un­der the site, though a wa­ter pipe will need to be in­stalled across Main St.

The site was the over­whelm­ing favourite among four sites of­fered to the com­mu­nity, re­ceiv­ing sup­port from 69 per cent of sub­mit­ters.

The toi­lets will cost an es­ti­mated $165,000.
