LIHUE, Hawaii -

Visitors to a Kauai community are complaining about the lack of public restrooms.
    
Merchants in Kilauea say vandalism and high demand forced them to limit restrooms to customers.
    
Other people are instructed to use portable facilities or bathrooms in Kilauea Park, which requires a two-minute walk from Kong Lung Historic Market Center.
    
Market owner Patricia Ewing tells The Garden Island she maintained public restrooms until March but couldn't keep up.
    
She says nearby shopping centers directed people to her restrooms and homeless people used them to bathe.
    
The owner of a bistro is now charging non-customers $10 to use his restaurant's restroom.
    
County Parks and Recreation officials say maintenance crews at Kilauea Park are struggling to keep up at the park because of the closure of merchants' restrooms.
