Rose Ave Parking Lot to Get Overnight Portable Potties

13 June 2018.   Rose Ave parking lot will get  portable potties near the end of June  for homeless to  use during the night, according to Wednesday LA Times article  and verified by Taylor Bazley, Venice deputy.   Bazley said the time for use will probably be 7 pm to 7 am.

They will be removed each morning and put in place in the evening.  The Rose Ave beach cluster of bathrooms is open from approximately 6 am to 6 pm.  It is planned to have the portable potties eliminate any lax in time for toilet service at Rose Ave.

LavaMae’s portable combination toilet/shower will come each Tuesday and Thursday from 9 am to 1 pm.

The beach restroom cluster at Horizon Ave was officially opened  Monday for 24-hour service.  There will be an attendee and a security guard at all tunes during the extended hours.   Parks and Recreation voted approval 4 April and it was reported later in April they had been opened.  See Venice Update story.  The latter was not true according to Bazley.  He said perhaps the locks had been broken and people got in.

Bazley further stated that 25 people used the bathroom Monday.
