Restroom pilot program up for discussion in Sacramento
In June, the city of Sacramento opened the Pit Stop Attended Restroom as a pilot program in the River District to provide safe, clean facilities for the homeless and to protect the public from vandalized restrooms. The Pit Stop program was funded for six months, at an operating cost of $174,000, and Sacramento City Council members agreed to consider permanent funding, and possible expansion, of the program based on its effectiveness. City staff will brief the council on the first four months of the experiment. The council meets at 6 p.m. in its chambers at 915 I St., Sacramento.
