STORY TO READ
January’s extreme temperatures caused pipes in the fountain in the lake to burst. No water has flowed from the fountains since.
Last month maintenance crews drained the lake so the pipes could be repaired. Then city officials decided to have the mud dredged from the lake bottom while it was empty.
The cost of the dredging depleted money from the budget. The amount left in the budget was insufficient to hire a contractor to repair the pipes. Maintenance crews have completed the repairs as their schedules have allowed.
The ducks were delighted when the fountain began flowing again yesterday.
