Jamestown residents made quite the presence at the commissioners’ 3/13 meeting and stood up in asking for upwards of $25,000 of city reserve funds to build their public restroom at Jamestown Park. This would’ve been for a one-room bathroom. They didn’t get that, however.
Instead commissioners unanimously agreed to build a two-room bathroom facility, meaning the city would be spending upwards of $50,ooo or double (yes, I said “double”) the amount requested. Tom Fellows in a stunning display of lucidity sided with residents and spoke up the importance of Davenport getting this project done. Darlene Bradley, as usual, sided with the people and made the motion that gave Jamestown residents double what they asked for.
Groundbreaking is expected in August 2017.
