Porta-potties to be replaced at Lyle Park

The Menlo Park City Council has approved a nearly $500,000 contract with Suarez & Munoz Construction to build permanent bathrooms at Jack W. Lyle Park, located at 640 Fremont St. The council accepted the $496,486 bid, along with a city designation of $75,000 in contingency funding. A total of $140,000 of that funding came from the city's undesignated fund balance for the 2017-18 fiscal year.

Building permanent bathrooms at the park will also require new electrical, water and sanitary utilities to be installed, according to staff.

City staff said the park gets about 50 users a day on weekdays and 400 on weekends, and is used heavily by local soccer and lacrosse groups. In the past, the park has relied on rented portable toilet facilities.

The new bathrooms will be next to Rosener House, an adult day services center, and will include family-friendly and water efficient features, according to staff.
