“It costs a lot to spend a penny in Navan,” Cllr Sinead Burke commented at Navan Town Council last week, when she called for the council to try and get out of is €31,000 a year contract for the maintenance of the public toilet on the Fair Green.
She called on the town manager to open negotiations with the maintenance company responsible for the public toilet on the Fair Green.
“In this time of financial constraint, a contract which costs the council approximately €31,000 per year for a convenience which only generates approximately €2,000 per year is untenable. I call on the manager to explore when the next break is in this contract and take steps to terminate it,” she said.
“It is inexcusable that any company can charge these sorts of fees in these times,” she said.
Cllr Anton McCabe supported the motion and said it was not value for money.
“Friday is the only day of the week it is used. It would be better to make a donation to the church so they would allow use of their toilet on a Friday,” he said.
