Brockton: Potty dance continues at Brockton City Hall

(AP) — New Brockton Mayor Bill Carpenter promised to make city government more open, but that apparently doesn’t apply to City Hall bathrooms.

A spokesman for Carpenter told The Enterprise on Thursday that the bathrooms will remain locked during the day under the new administration.

The bathrooms were locked last year after a handful of incidents over the summer where men were discovered shaving or attending to other personal grooming needs in the ladies’ room.

Visitors to City Hall now have to get a key from the mayor’s office by leaving photo identification or another form of collateral.

The bathrooms are unlocked during the evenings for people attending public meetings.
