BEGA Valley Shire Council will upgrade or replace public toilets in the shire as required but no new public toilets will be constructed.
Councillors resolved last week to retain and maintain the public toilets.
In January council decided to demolish various toilets throughout the shire as a cost cutting measure.
The list included the toilets at George Bass Park in Eden but this was later excluded after representations from sporting bodies.
However, councilors were determined that one of the nine public toilets in Eden had to go “in line with council’s position to responsibly and fiscally manage public amenity facilities”.
Eden Area Committee was asked for suggestions on how to consult with the Eden community to identify which toilet should go but it replied that “none of the Eden toilets can be sacrificed”.
“There is a particular need for the retention of all the public toilets in Eden, particularly to service the ongoing needs of growing visitor numbers, now almost the year round,” the committee reported.
Councillors resolved to retain and maintain all the Eden public toilets and that the additional funding required be identified at the next review of council’s budget.
