OC building new public restroom at park

by: RAYMOND RENDLEMAN - A public restroom at Rivercrest Park will be constructed in time for summer after Oregon City commissioners set aside $299,000 for the project.You can call it an OC Loo: Oregon City commissioners last week unanimously approved a $299,000 contract with Emerick Construction Co. to build a public restroom at Rivercrest Park in time for summer.

Community Services Director Scott Archer’s department sought proposals on Nov. 6, and by Dec. 4, five contractors responded. An evaluation committee reviewed and scored the proposals through a “best value concept” versus a “low bid” process, unanimously selecting Emerick, which ranked highest overall for being “responsive and responsible.”

Emerick will begin construction this month and is anticipated to complete the restroom project by the end of May. A grant through the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department will fund half the project, and the other half is budgeted through the Oregon City Parks Department and system development charges.
