Vanishing Act
Downtown fountain removed
Fountain-goneWEB
It's gone but not forgotten. The Court Square fountain has been removed by city officials for routine repair work.
The fountain on Court Square has performed a disappearing act.“We decided with the cold weather moving in that it would be a good time to dismantle it, clean it, and paint it,” said Hank Patton, the city’s landscape manager. “Apparently, we created a mystery as to where the fountain went. I like a good mystery.”In January 2012, the fountain was removed for one month and sent to be cleaned and powder coated – a technique of applying dry paint.
