Street toilet idea going down drain

http://www.jewishworldreview.com | (UPI) -- New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg -- along with his three predecessors -- all came into office promising to add street toilets to the Big Apple's landscape.

The New York Post reports like those who came before him, Bloomberg's plan is in danger of going down the drain.

City Councilman Tony Avella told the Post the high cost of public toilets -- about $30,000 each -- is a major obstacle and few companies would want to pay money to advertise on the side of a toilet.

The City Council is struggling with an entire package of ideas -- including having newsstand vendors buy new stands and then allow advertising to be displayed on them -- with all the proceeds going to the city.
