Queensland Council installs toilet soap dispensers
Our comparator council, the Sunshine Coast Council in Queensland, announced on March 23 that it would install and maintain soap dispensers in all public toilet facilities across the region to help combat the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic.
In just one week, soap dispensers were installed to enable the community to comply with the hygiene and hand-washing recommendations of the Department of Health.
The response from the community has been very positive.
Central Coast Council should follow this lead, as hand hygiene measures will be in place for the foreseeable future.
Central Coast Council has an obligation to keep our community safe.
It would be a welcome and popular initiative.
