City Council Special Meeting to Approve New Bathrooms at Memorial Park

The Susanville City Council has approved a new project to replace the current restroom facility located at Memorial Park. The project aims to upgrade the current facility to be open year-round with updated amenities.

After reviewing five different quotes, the council decided to go with CXT, the same provider who created the bathroom facility at Fruitgrowers Park. Their quote includes a timed electric lock system, anti-graffiti coating, and exterior-mounted ADA drinking fountain. The new restroom facility will have two bathrooms – one for men and one for women, with modern amenities.

To prepare for demolition of the current restroom facility, the council has recommended a survey of lead paint and asbestos. GuziWest Inspection and Consulting will conduct the survey in Susanville and add the site visit to their schedule later this month.

The CDBG CV 2/3 grant program will fund the project, and there will be no cost to the general fund. The estimated cost for purchasing and delivering the new restroom facility through CXT is $200,000, with an additional $1,500 for the asbestos and lead paint survey.

The council will meet in special session tomorrow at 9am to authorize the Public Works Director to enter into the purchase agreement with CXT Concrete Products for the new restroom facility at Memorial Park and to enter into a services contract agreement with Guzi-West Inspection and Consulting for the asbestos and lead paint testing at the current restroom facility located at Memorial Park.

The city meets at City Hall on North Lassen Street.
