Public toilets across York are set for a £663,000 upgrade, the local council being ready to vote on a proposal to outsource the service through a 15-year contract covering the refurbishment and maintenance of facilities.
According to a news article in the local media, a council spokeswoman said the 2013/14 council budget agreed that to realise savings, they should consider using external providers and introducing charges. The council says the new arrangement will save them £75,000 a year.
Under the terms of this new arrangement, public conveniences will be open 24-hours-a-day, but residents will have to pay 40p a time to use them.
Toilet Turnstiles supplies an extensive range of solutions designed specifically to restrict access to a public toilet and also charge for access to the premises.
Our toilet turnstiles are built from graded stainless steel, for easier cleaning and maintenance, and also come equipped with lockable lids to prevent unwanted access. Furthermore, the separate coin box offers very versatile mounting options, as it can be installed either in front of the turnstile, at the side or alternatively, on the wall, with the cash box at the rear.
The turnstile’s coin mechanism can be programmed for virtually any combination of coins with a secure cash box to hold them, while the additional counters for the number of entries made will enable a thorough level of control over the system’s operation.
