CLEVELAND – When you are planning an epic day of celebration for the city of Cleveland and their NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers, there are many, many details to consider.

Parking, road closures, safety, traffic.

But with hundreds of thousands of people heading downtown Wednesday, perhaps one of the most important “details” would be this: port-a-potties.

And for a while there, rumors were circulating that all those people on the go might not have enough places…well….to go.

The City of Cleveland, via the mayor’s communications staff,  has flushed those rumors away, though, with a thrport a pottyee-line e-mail early Tuesday evening:

1.     There will be port-a-potties tomorrow.
2.     City Hall is open for business and employees do need to report to work.

So, no worries about  a little relief during the celebrations.

And as for the City Hall employees……bummer.
