County looks at renovating Piepenburg restrooms

McLeod County is planning improvements to the bathroom facility at Piepenburg Park, north of Hutchinson.
Parks Director Al Koglin told the County Board at its Aug. 16 meeting that the current bathroom is 34 years old, and needs some upgrading.
Koglin would like to totally remodel the interior, and divide it up into four family-style bathrooms, rather than having a men’s room and a women’s room.
The family-style bathrooms would allow more privacy, Koglin said.
“Right now, the showers are more of a locker room style,” said Koglin. He added that the park could probably get by with fewer showers, because the campsites have water hookups and most people use the facilities in their campers.
Commissioner Ron Shimanski asked Koglin if he could costs for totally replacing the bathroom. He said the county could consider a wood structure rather than the current cement block building
Koglin said he could look into that, but noted that the concrete bathroom also serves as a storm shelter for the park.
The County Board agreed to allow Koglin to find a firm to help with a redesign of the building.
