Port-a-pottie reprieve in Montgomery
Montgomery County Parks Director Mary Bradford, in a letter obtained by The Washington Examiner, told County Council President Nancy Floreen that her department will spare more than 80 rental port-a-potties that were planned to be scrapped to save $155,000.
Parks officials were going to eliminate all portable toilets at county parks. But Montgomery County residents overwhelmingly opposed the decision, calling it unsafe, unsanitary and inexcusable for one of the nation's wealthiest communities.
The department now concedes the backlash helped keep the commodes.
