MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Miami City Commissioner Frank Carollo is fighting for equality for dads on diaper duty.

Carollo plans to introduce a bill Thursday to install diaper-changing stations in all city bathrooms including all men’s rooms, according to CBS4 News partner The Miami Herald.

Carollo, who has a one-year-old daughter, realized the city had a problem when he couldn’t find a men’s room with a changing station.

After he did some checking, he discovered some parks and city facilities have changing stations, but only recently built ones that follow Miami-Dade County code, which mandates them.

In all, about 35 city facilities have diaper-changing stations that can be accessed by fathers but he wants changing stations in the men’s and women’s rooms of all 200 city-run facilities.

When he first tried to fix the situation, city officials told him it would cost about $80,000 which included the price of hiring a contractor.

Realizing that was too much to spend, Carollo found a cheaper price for the changing stations and questioned the need for a contractor.

Now the City is expected to spend about $45,000 buying and installing 165 new diaper-changing stations in more than 100 bathrooms.

Work is expected to begin after Thursday’s vote.
