Learning center restroom delayed

ST. MARYS – Due to the high cost of purchasing a pre-engineered public restroom facility from Oregon, the Elk County Conservation District is pursuing other alternatives for the West Creek Wetland Learning Center."I have met with the [Elk County] commissioners and the planning commission a few times over the past few weeks to discuss the project," said District Manager Steve Putt. "We have kind of decided to take a step back."Initially, Conservation District officials had discussed purchasing the facility from Romtec, a company based out of Roseburg, Ore., that specializes in the manufacturing and installation of complete engineered buildings such as public restrooms, concession and multipurpose facilities, park pavilions, shelters and control buildings.
