SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The Salt Lake City Council has given preliminary approval to fund a portable toilet pilot program to help prevent public urination and defecation.

The Salt Lake Tribune reported (http://bit.ly/1PLV6DP ) Thursday that the $200,000 program would likely start in the Pioneer Park area, with toilets strapped on at least one trailer. Councilmembers are hoping private entities also contribute to the program.

Salt Lake City councilmembers began considering launching such a program after visiting San Francisco a few weeks ago and seeing its own traveling toilet program in action.

The Utah trailer would include an attendant to keep watch over the facility.

Some Salt Lake City councilmembers are warry of the program, questioning how its effectiveness would be determined.

The city must decide on next year’s budget by June 22.
