Denver might scale back toilet cleaning

Oct. 1, 2004 at 6:49 PM

DENVER, Oct. 1 (UPI) -- Park officials in Denver have caused a stink with a money-saving proposal to begin cleaning public toilets more thoroughly -- but less frequently.

Some City Council members are concerned a public-health crisis could erupt if public toilets aren't attended on a regular basis, the Denver Post reported.

"No matter what budget you put out there, there's always something that's going to raise a stink," Mayor John Hickenlooper said after a budget hearing.

Denver's Parks and Recreation Department says it can save $175,000 a year with a scaled-down schedule.

"Dirty bathrooms drive women out of parks," complained Councilwoman Carol Boigon.
