In case you were wondering what the tap fee was for the new restrooms on St. George Island public beach – it was 13,745 dollars.
The Franklin County commission approved the payment to Water Management Services on April 20th – it will be covered by the Franklin County Tourist Development Council.
The restrooms were officially opened to the public on the same day.
It features 10 bathroom stalls (five men and five women in two detached areas) and three manual outdoor shower units.
All lavatory fixtures are sensor-operated allowing for a hands-free experience.
The interior of the restroom facility is lined with low-maintenance fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) panels from wall to ceiling.
The restroom project represents the largest public works project on St. George Island funded by Franklin County's lodging tax.
