Toilet facilites at Duncan tent site inadequate
The [St. Julian Street] tent site has 12 tents and one single portable construction site toilet. The City of Duncan set up the site and should have installed proper toilet facilities.
The city could have rented from Atco portables, a 6-foot by 13-foot twin toilet unit, situated on a raised platform, with flush water toilet, a sink, and a mirror. One unit for men and one unit for women.
These units are self contained and pose no health hazards, and with the summer weather here, there is no smell from these units, whereas the present single unit that the city has set up will produce a health hazard as well as a smell if not pumped out on a regular basis.
I am sure that the city could manage to fund the rental of a proper toilet unit as the city paid out a total of $2,642,052 in wages in 2018, with only a population of 4,944 people recorded in the 2016 census report. In summary, to the city, why bother to do anything, if you are not planning to do the job correctly? Remember that these tent occupants are people too. Unbelievable!
