Night Closure of Public Restrooms
The Lakeport Public Works Department has been dealing with an increase in maintenance and upkeep at the public restrooms in Library Park and the nearby boat ramps.
The City has received complaints from the public regarding people leaving hazardous items such as used needles. There have also been confirmed reports of doors being locked and people sleeping in the restrooms overnight.
To help resolve some of these ongoing problems, all of the public restrooms at Library Park and the nearby boat ramps will be closed and locked at midnight each night.
The restrooms being locked at midnight are the First, Third and Fifth streets launch ramp restrooms. The primary restrooms, next to Carnegie Library in Library Park, are locked at approximately 4:30 p.m. each day.
All of the restrooms will be opened to the public each morning, seven days a week. The Fifth Street restroom will be unlocked at approximately 6:00 a.m. and the Third Street, First Street and primary restrooms will be unlocked at approximately 8:00 a.m.
Lakeport Police officers will be increasing patrols in the area to enhance public safety.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
