Town reverses course on portable toilets, opens Simcoe Park washrooms instead

The town's plans to install portable toilets to keep up with the number of visitors to Old Town, rather than open the Simcoe Park bathrooms, changed last week when Niagara-on-the-Lake’s emergency group decided to open the park washrooms and forget the portable ones after all.

After a Tuesday interview with Lord Mayor Betty Disero, The Lake Report reported last week that the portable washrooms would be installed.  When the mayor was asked specifically if the portable washrooms "were for sure," she said they were.

However, last Wednesday, after the paper went to press, Disero messaged to say the town was no longer certain about using portable washrooms.

“Last night the answer was for sure, but today we hit a road bump,” she said in a message.
