TNRD – Downtown library washrooms scheduled to get a fresh coat of paint

The washrooms in the downtown Kamloops library will get a fresh coat of paint.

TNRD director Tina Lange commented at the regional district board’s regular meeting Thursday (Feb. 8, 2017) that the washrooms are in sad shape.

“It’s disgusting,” she said. “We should be so embarrassed.”

Lange wondered if they might be renovated along with the other renovations scheduled for the library.

“We’re constantly renovating the washrooms,” CAO Sukh Gill responded wryly.

Lange noted that the washrooms are badly abused, with fixtures being broken and grime building up. “It’s the broken window thing,” she said, referring to the tendency of poorly maintained buildings to become worse.

“It’s happening every day,” said Gill of problems with the library washrooms. “It’s a constant struggle.”

But he said they’re scheduled for a paint job next week.

  1. Keep the bums and homeless out. I found a guy leaking in the big long sink at Costco if you can believe that. How did he get in the place?
