Fayette approves fountain funds

The Heritage Park Fountain at the Fayette County Administrative Complex will be flowing and glowing following repairs approved by the Board of Commissioners Thursday night.

The board voted 5-0 to allocate up to $65,000 of already budgeted funds to fix and enhance the existing granite structure with cast stone and color-changing LED lights. The fountain has already gotten a new pump. City staff will consider adding ridges across the top edge to discourage skateboarders, and will shorten the overhang to minimize breakage. The brick pavers at the base will be reset and leveled to reduce tripping hazards.
