Half of Colombo’s public lavatories are unclean Featured

Half of the 48 public lavatories maintained by the Colombo Municipal Council are in a very unclean state, according to director of industries of the CMC M.A.C.L. Fazal.

He has told Ravaya that 18 were being maintained at a very good level, while the six others could be considered as being average.

Only Borella is without a public lavatory as no land is available in the town, he said.

Municipal commissioner Lalith Wickramaratne said that steps would be taken to repair any public lavatories if he was informed.

It was reported recently that new Colombo mayoress Rosie Senanayake has spent Rs. 5.2 million to renovate her official residence, including Rs. 1.3 m for the bathrooms.
