Ross-on-Wye public conveniences could be entered in the 'Toilet of the Year' competition

By Jo Scrivin in Local People

Ross Town Council is delighted that the firm which has given estimates for work at the public conveniences in Ross was very impressed by them.

They told the Clerk that they were ‘amazing’ and complimented the town on the standard of cleanliness. They even suggested that Ross should be entered into the Toilet of the Year competition.

Councillor Richard Mayo told the Ross Gazette that the toilets are maintained by Mavis Russell Cleaners and he was delighted that they had been recognised for such a good service.

The company which provides toilet facilities has been considering work which needs to be carried out at the public conveniences at Wye Street and Red Meadow. At first the Council was investigating the price of installing coin operated door locks as well as hand dryers and a baby changing area.

A price was quoted for the supply of these items which was £1,410 which the Policy and Management Committee agreed. However when this was put to the full Town Council, at their meeting on Monday, February 13th, the Clerk explained that this price was dependent on having the coin operated door release sytems fitted as well. As they had decided not to go ahead with these for now, there would be an extra installation charge of £400.

Councillor Daniel Lister asked if the Town Council’s own team could carry out the installation. The Clerk said that as it was for electric hand dryers and the changing area would be used for babies it needed to be safe and this was agreed.
