PLYMOUTH – Downtown could have a public restroom building in time for July’s Mill Street Fest event.

The City Council Tuesday awarded contracts to build the restroom to AChappa of Sheboygan Falls and Haucke Plumbing of Plymouth, at a total cost of $187,722.

Architect Mark Pfaller told the council he had met with the contractor to go over the schedule for the 517-square foot building, which will be located between 321 and 401 E. Mill St.

“I told him we’d like to have the building open for business by the Fourth of July, so July 3,” Pfaller explained.

He had earlier told the Plan Commission, which approved the site plan earlier this month, that construction will take about two months.

The building, which will be located between an existing planter and an electrical transformer next to the drive off Mill Street, will feature three restrooms – a men’s, a women’s and a family restroom. The family restroom will have a changing table, Pfaller said.

The contracts approved by the council included an alternate for a steel roof, which City Administrator Brian Yerges said was recommended by city staff.

“The steel roof is probably going to be there through most of our lifetimes,” Pfaller told the council members.

The entrances to the restrooms will be from the west side of the building, which will have grey shingle siding with stone along the base of the walls.

It will include security lighting and an automatic door lock system that will restrict hours that the restrooms are open, with the hours to be set by city officials.

He said the interior walls and floors will be ground-down concrete and will be treated at the plant with an anti-graffiti coating, making the interior easy to clean.

“The overall cost is within the budget parameters and the funds set aside for the Stayer Park project,” Yerges told the council.

The restroom building is part of an ongoing project to upgrade Stayer Park and the riverfront area south of Mill Street.

The effort began last fall with the removal of the ramp to municipal parking facility at the east end of Mill Street.

Electrical service in the area is being moved underground, enabling the removal of utility poles in the area. A new shelter pavilion for the riverfront has been ordered and will be installed this summer, along with new playground equipment for Stayer Park. A contract to repave the parking lot area has already been awarded with that work scheduled this summer.

“It’s going to be a busy project all summer long,” Public Works Director Bill Immich noted.
