The bathroom has been renovated or rebuilt and no longer has the memorial plaque.

The "Dave Vail Memorial Toilet" -- an outdoor restroom -- had stood since 1986, when Dave, who was very much alive, had used his position on the City Council to acquire it for one dollar.

Memorial Toilet

The funny thing about the Memorial Toilet, according to my mom who lives in Estacada (and it's where I grew up), is that the guy it was named for was alive when they built the "memorial toilet" in his honor.
