The State

December 18, 1985

A plan to install French toilets along San Francisco streets was tabled by the Board of Supervisors, which instead opted to send a letter to Mayor Dianne Feinstein asking her to have city budget officials pursue the plan. The proposal, designed to meet the needs of the city's homeless and to quiet residents and merchants who complain of human waste in doorways, has been shot down twice by a supervisors' committee that called it too costly. Last Friday, a group of citizens protesting the lack of public restrooms in San Francisco staged a 15-minute "sit-in" on most of the 101 toilets in City Hall.
