Demolish unutilised municipal toilets


Comments / {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}} Views / Thursday, 1 March 2018 00:00


There are municipal public toilets located on about two perches land inside the garden ‘atay (8th) watta’ in Maligakanda Road, Colombo 10, which are no more in use with the water supply being disconnected.

This place has become an eyesore with garbage strewn inside and outside same. This is to suggest that the municipality demolish these toilets immediately and make use of this space to put up a reading room/library for the use of the students residing in this garden. Or else plant trees and flowers to make garden more pleasing to the eye. 

The municipality can also look into other options to make use of this space such as to put up a mini-children’s park or some other purpose which will bring benefits to the residents of the above garden. Over to Mayor-to-be Rosie Senanayake to make the environment rosy.
