Port Maintenance Reports:

The maintenance department is cleaning the public restrooms two times per day at minimum. The toilets keep getting plugged up. The solution may be to increase flush flow with a bigger flush kit. A procedure will be written on what to do when the toilets are plugged. A kid locked the door in the bathroom, crawled under the toilet stall and left. Someone went in and kicked the door which broke the latch. An option is to remove the door latch & take the doors locks off. The restrooms were tagged on the inside of the men’s side. A ‘Maintenance Plan’ will be created by Commissioner Petz, the Maintenance department and Jim Ayres – septic designer to best manage the septic system in different usage scenarios.
