Public restrooms on docks closed too early

Just in the last two weeks I have been among the many local folks riding, walking, taking the kids or dogs out for relaxation and exercise. But wait, no matter how great the weather is, don't plan on using the restrooms at dock 4 or 2 after the ships have left.

I think it is wrong that those folks who have the contract to clean the facilities should close down the restrooms as soon as the walkway is raised on the ships at 3 PM or earlier.

Wouldn't it be nicer if we local citizens could know they were available til at least 6 PM. This should be addressed now, or when the job is re-bid, put in a closing time that benefits the locals.
