Hoboken acquires portable bathrooms for Lepre-Con
This morning, I spotted a massive truck hauling what seemed to be a couple dozen Porta-John toilets downtown.
A source told Hoboken411 that to prepare for the unknown possibilities for the upcoming Hoboken Lepre-Con drinking event this Saturday, the city ordered upwards of 100 of these toilets. From what I understand these poopers can cost up to $500 per day to rent – so that could put the city on the hook for over $25,000!
Additionally, according to my source, the city was considering placing some of these toilets on residential streets, quite possibly in front of one of your apartment buildings!
I’m sure the last thing any of you want is a line of boisterous drunks waiting urinate, defecate and vomit right outside your living room window. And who knows how many of these will eventually get knocked over, spilling that disgusting liquid that will permanently stain your expensive stone pavers! Let’s hope the city re-considers and confines these to commercial areas only.
And who’s paying for these? Property taxpayers? Or the bars & organizers of Lepre-Con?
