Anyone hoping to spend a penney to use a public toilet in Ballina has a long wait.
The Director of Services for MCC Tom Gilligan told councillors in the BMD area yesterday that a public toilet on a street in the town does not make economic sense, due to the cost of the facility and would not bring an extra tourist to Ballina.
FG Cllr John O’Hara disagrees- and argued that it’s a basic facility for people doing their shopping in the town.
He asked at least for signs to be erected at public buildings in the town indicating toilet facilities, if available.
Afterwards Cllr O'Hara told Midwest News the response by the council is not good enough.
