City Council is getting closer to a decision on the design, if any, for the fountain at Lachenauer Plaza on Court Street. The public has been looking at designs since the North Country Arts Council offered to spearhead a competition to redecorate the fountain.
Since that offer, Public Works crews have stripped and painted the fountain blue and since it looks so good it could remain a solid color.
Council toinght discussed criteria for a final choice and seems to agree a less "busy" design would fit best on the relatively small area available.
At its work session tonight , Council also reviewed a list of City owned property and decided on which ones to send to auction. Included are tax sale certificates for six properties thought to have pollution problems.
Council also discussed concession arrangements for events in Thompson Park and the need to recruit people to serve on City boards and commissions.
