Councilwoman Requests Park Restroom Cleanup

Hellertown Borough councilwoman Gail Nolf told Public Works Director Tom Henshaw Sept. 17 that the floors at the women's restroom in Dimmick Park are "disgusting."

A Hellertown Borough Council member requested that special attention be given to the women's restroom at Dimmick Park Sept. 17.

Councilwoman Gail Nolf told Public Works Director Tom Henshaw that the floors in the bathroom are "disgusting" and covered with "skeletonized bugs."

Nolf said she's heard complaints about the facilities during youth football games at the park, although she said she's unsure about conditions in the men's room.

The women's restroom "needs pressure-washing," she told Henshaw. "Somebody has to go in and clean the floor." 

Henshaw responded to the concern by telling Nolf that he already checks the women's restroom on a daily basis, and that it's cleaned regularly.

When he said he didn't think he could pressure-wash the floor at this time of year, councilman Tom Rieger interjected and said, "We are not asking you. We are telling you."

Henshaw then agreed to examine the condition of the floor in the lavatory.

this article highlights the idiocy of all of these people: - doesnt public works check the restrooms regularly? if not, someone should be fired for not doing their job - the councilwoman had to wait for a meeting to bring this up? use that amazing invention called a phone - the restrooms were fine until the youth football games started. wasn't like that during baseball season.

The women's restroom was marginally clean during baseball, the floor was always gritty and in need of a sweeping up. You'd use it, it wasn't so bad you'd get in the car and go elsewhere, but it always looked liked it missed a cleaning.
