ARCATA- The Arcata City Council will consider a different location for the downtown public restroom at Wednesday's Council meeting. The council will consider a second location, on the 700 block of 8th Street, east of the plaza, on an alley way across from Bank of America.

Council member Susan Ornelas requested that the item be reintroduced after listening to business owners concerns over the original location on the 800 block of 8th Street, west of the plaza.

The council approved the $110,00 Portlan Loo in October after considering multiple location for the public restroom.  The council will meet Wednesday at Arcata City Hall at 6 p.m.
