Little Bay Park crapper bids due

From Bayside Patch:

The city's Department of Parks and Recreation has begun the bidding process for the construction of a comfort station at Little Bay Park for which Bayside leaders have been calling for seven years, state Sen. Tony Avella, D-Bayside, said.

The agency will pick and vet the winning bidder and construction is expected to begin by the end of the year, the senator said.

The senator secured $1 million for the project four years ago when he was a member of the City Council. U.S. Rep. Gary Ackerman, D-Bayside, also brought in funding for the project, which also involved expanding a parking lot at the park.

The Bay Terrace Community Alliance and Avella held a press conference last year during which they called on the city to get the project underway.

Perhaps they should take a Q from the Elmhurst (Tank Park) where the new potty house has been under construction for 2 years and is a design inovation - meaning cost way too much and someone in the Parks Dept handed a relative a too good winfall to build the Trump Potty building of the century! It may take that long to ever see it open!

They could do a real nice slit trench overnight and would cost bupcus!
