Fight brewing over toilet gardens in Potsdam

A fight over tipped over toilets is heating up in Potsdam. An electronic sign outside the Agway building reads “We Don’t See Art. We See Tipped Over Toilets.” Agway’s owner says he’s annoyed that he sees the broken and haphazard toilets outside his office window, especially when compared to the well-maintained displays on Market and Pierrepont Avenue. The toilet displayer—businessman Hank Robar—has been using the flower filled toilets to protest after village officials denied him a zoning change on one of his properties. Village leaders seem reluctant to sue to get the porcelin flower gardens removed.
