NO priorities for public toilet locations will be set until after June 28 pending another meeting the CWA.
Orange City Council discussed the Robertson Park toilet proposal against four other locations in need across the local government area, under pressure from the state government to spend $195,000 in grant funding.
Councillor Stephen Nugent supported Perry Oval as the first priority, followed by Glenroi Oval and John Lomas Skate Park.
"From my reading of the report, if we were to go with the cubicle-style toilets, they're $85,000 each, we could build three with a little bit of supplementation of the government money," he said.
Cr Nugent noted Glenroi Oval was only lightly used due to a lack of structured activities, but linemarking would soon be added for a sporting field.
"One of the key topics people were talking about was the need for a toilet facility in close proximity to the sporting field so people could use the toilet," he said.

Councillor Kevin Duffy said he supported a CWA Hall co-location as the first preference, despite the Orange CWA branch's previous indications it would not be a party to any further talks, followed by toilets on the eastern side of the park, facing McNamara Street.
Mayor Reg Kidd signalled he would meet with NSW CWA chief executive officer Danica Leys on June 28 to discuss co-location.
But CWA branch secretary Deborah Marr indicated the branch's decision had not changed.
"We felt we had well and truly exhausted trying to find a solution - we spent five years looking at the various options," she said.
"We're baffled by Reg Kidd's comments, we don't know where he's coming from," she said.
