Public employees told to bring own TP

WINDSOR, Mo., March 18 (UPI) -- A Missouri mayor said he was shocked when a speaker at an aldermanic meeting revealed public works employees had been told to bring toilet paper from home.

Windsor Mayor Justin Brown said he was shocked when Nancy Dunbar spoke at last week's meeting and suggested a fundraiser to stop the policy of requiring the city's 10 public works employees, who are all male, to bring their own toilet paper to work, KCTV, Kansas City, Mo., reported.

"I was just really incredulous that this was a topic to be brought up at a City Hall meeting, much less have any truth to it," Brown said. "The No. 1 emotion is embarrassment. We have a lot of good things going on in our little town, and this is the topic."

Dunbar said Brown wasn't the only one shocked by the revelation.

"The mayor was like, 'What are you talking about?' Because the mayor had no idea. The aldermen had no idea. I mean mouths just dropped," Dunbar said.

Dunbar said the policy came from an edict handed down by city administrator Sandra Underwood. However, Underwood said the order came from the head of Public Works and she was not involved.

Brown said toilet paper is now being provided for the men.

"We are always looking for ways to save money," Brown said. "I'm just fearful that this finally hit a fever pitch and this is where it got ridiculous."
