Several folks gathered in the Downtown Plaza to cut the ribbon (or toilet tissue) to officially open the new restrooms. Restrooms will now be available to downtown shoppers and people attending the many events sponsored by the Downtown Paris Association each year.
The restrooms were constructed by the Paris Parks and Recreation Department. (kudos to these guys, they are so talented!!) 70% of the funding for these restrooms was provided through a Tourism Enhancement Grant from the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development. Without City labor and funding from the State of Tennessee, these much needed restrooms would not have been possible. Thanks to everyone!
The restrooms will open daily at 6:00 a.m. and close each evening at 10:00 p.m.
