WEST HAVEN, June 28, 2018 — The timer-controlled locks for the bathrooms in Old Grove Park have been installed, Mayor Nancy R. Rossi announced Thursday, June 28.
Rossi said the bathrooms, which front the Savin Rock beach walk, will be open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. starting Saturday, June 30.
The new locks, installed Tuesday, June 26, can be locked or unlocked via a smartphone app and eliminate the need — and the cost of overtime — for city workers to unlock or lock the bathrooms on weekends.
Rossi said that the $2,210 cost to buy and install the locks is coming out of the mayor’s office budget, but that several residents and businesses have expressed interest in reimbursing the city for the cost.
