AGO 1958 NO. 159 > Feb 18 1958

A city may legally appropriate funds for the acquisition, operation, and maintenance of public restroom facilities, and may maintain such facilities on premises leased by the city for that purpose.  A city and county may not maintain such facilities in the city as a joint county-city function separate and apart from other joint operations expressly authorized by statute.
