So here’s an issue nobody is talking about. . . yet.
There are no public restrooms in downtown Milford. Yes, there are bathrooms at the Milford Public Library, but they are becoming overused and abused, according to Kay M. Hudson, library director.
Here’s what’s been happening: people soil and dirty the bathroom floors and walls. Now the library has to pay for someone to come in and clean twice a day.
For security reasons, the bathrooms are locked, so people come in off the street and want to use the bathroom. Staff has to hand out and monitor the keys.
At this time of year, the problem is really a problem because downtown is bustling with the Farmers’ Market on Saturdays. No bathrooms for patrons or vendors.
The city is actively encouraging people to use and enjoy the Riverwalk. No bathrooms.
The city basketball court is often crowded. No bathrooms.
Talking with Milford City Manager Richard Carmean, it seems like their might be an opportunity to address and remedy the problem when the new water department is built on Washington Street.
Let’s see if this problem gets flushed out!
OK. . . bad pun!
