The City of Lewisburg is paying over $150,000 for bathrooms to be built in the ally beside City Hall. This will also include a kiosk and patio area. In times of economic hardship, I cannot believe a City government would under take such a project. This is pure wasteful spending that does not have any benefit for the City taxpayers. If you are a city taxpayer call City Hall and voice your opinion or better yet make an appearance at the next council meeting and request better fiscal accountability. If they want to build bathrooms maybe they should start in the park system were local people may actually need them.

Do the shops in downtown Lewisburg allow tourists to use their bathrooms? If you are going to promote a walkable tourist town, you have to accomodate their need with a public restroom.

I agree that you do need restrooms and there is currently is one in City Hall that you can use until about 10 pm every night. Also perhaps the shop owners should be more accommodating. You must agree that $150,000 for two bathrooms that are only seasonable is a high price to pay at taxpayers expense.

I guess more of our tax dollars were spent for the new signs that light up to tell you to yield to pedestrians when turning? Dont you have to know these things to get a license anymore? Common courtesy and common sense seem to be in short supply these days.

They should use that money to hire a couple new cops that will do their job and take some of the evening drunks off the streets!

This will be another infringement and disservice to the city of Lewisburg taxpaying residents.who use the alley to pay their city water bills.
There will be no more alley.
The Taxpaying Residents would be interested in just how many actual city residents use this fountain and the true cost of maintaining it.
Most probably it is maintained with water bills.
The bathroom if needed should be located on the fountain lot.and not block off the alley.
The Police must be tired of locking up the city hall bathrooms at night.

This is just another justification for getting a new city council and mayor. This idea is about as silly as the Lake Lewisburg.
It is my understanding that this will take more of the free parking on the bank lot as if we didn't need it.

Why can't people just use the bathrooms in the "Visitors Center"? Those bathroom are very nice. Not sure about the hours.

Cost of building the bathrooms is the least of our concerns....It is the UPKEEP. Who is going to keep them clean and stocked with supplies. YOU ME
Our TAX DOLLARS!

Thanks, I will share my concerns with "City Hall".

So the little building at the fountain is not a restroom?
It'll give them an excuse to hire some mexicans to do the upkeep on the restrooms and get some gubement funding to pay the wages..lol..then they can take turns using said wetback to water the yards and flowers of the loonyburg elite.

I totally concure.

The visitors center should have the their rest rooms open untill at least 10 PM at night. They should place signs down town Stating they have their rest rooms open. They could place a counter so they could report on how many visitors come to visitors center.(That's what their doing any way) Anything to justify the exhistance of a down town visitors center with no parking.(Another Joke in Lewisburg)

You are about as stupid as they come now days. Get off your butt and go do something!!! Instead of sitting on here and running your mouth about some good people. Grow up and stop being a vagina!!! Geez... I couldn't use profanity.:)

Kat you make a good point perhaps its time to use this site for some good. Instead of off the wall comments possibly we should write letters to the city of Lewisburg and voice our opinions. Remember these people work for us not the other way around. Let's take a stand and demand that our hard earned tax dollars be spent wisely. Hell if we are going to take our country back we should start at the local level and work our way up.
