Public Restroom Project Scaled Back, Total Cost Up

Anthony Pollreisz, K2 Radio

The cost for a new public restroom in downtown Casper is going up.

Casper City Council has agreed to a roughly $350,000 contract with Casper-based Haass Construction toward construction of the facility at the parking ramp between South Center and South Wolcott streets.

Casper mayor Paul Meyer said the city was able to cut about $26,000 from the final price tag.

“We did scale the bathrooms back – there won’t be a family area with diaper-changing in this parking structure, and that’s what bringing the price down amounted to,” Meyer said. “The (Downtown Development Authority) believes this is a good enough project that they anted up the additional money it’ll take.”

The estimate for the project was $225,000.

Funding for the project will come from a Wyoming Business Council grant, excess one-cent funds and funds from the DDA.

Meyer said the restroom should be completed by the end of the year.
