A washroom fault has been spotted in West Kelowna’s plans to build a multi-use indoor recreation facility, but city councillors say the project won’t go down the drain.

City staff reported to the mayor and council on Tuesday that the dome facility they’re planning needs to have indoor bathrooms.

The original plan called for washrooms to be placed in a portable trailer outside of the facility, but that doesn’t meet the provincial building code.

City councillor Rick de Jong says staff did not ask for any additional funding to make the change.
