The restroom is concrete masonry construction (concrete block) covered with some very expensive aluminum panels. Listed below are some of the costs.
120,000 for concrete masonry walls
160,000 for aluminum panels
33,250 for aluminum soffit and trim
15,000 for painting
83,700 for plumbing and water fountains
28,000 for HVAC
74,250 for electric
1,500 for toilet compartments
1,500 for toilet accessories
Could this have been built for less? I'm sure. But when they are spending our tax dollars the sky is the limit!
Maybe we should have someone taking pictures of the people using the restroom and saying something like .....I visited Jeffersonvilles 633,550 dollar restroom.....and selling them to the visitors.
This restroom was part of the design provided by the Estopinal Group for the park. They had a no bid contract for design services and were paid 363,000 for the design. That price does not include change order fees.
The enclosed area under the bridge ramp that is covered in the same expensive aluminum panels is the control room for the water feature. It cost 396,950 to construct. Total cost for the restroom and the control room was 1,030,500 tax dollars.
Can we afford more moore progress?
By the way, under the canal proposal, the construction costs of this park were being paid for by the developer from Texas.
