FISH POND TO BE REPAIRED

FISH POND TO BE REPAIRED:  The Fish Pond located at the corner of First Street and Missouri Street is finally getting some much needed repair work.  While the repairs are being done, the fish will be housed off-site, so there won't be anything for the kids to look at for a few weeks.  While the repairs are being done, the fish will be housed off-site, so there won't be anything for the kids to look at for a few weeks.  But, when the work is finished, the fish will be returned to a nicer home.  The pond will be drained and completely cleaned of sludge, which has not been done in many years.  Then, the concrete ledge around the top of the pond will be repaired as well as the wrought-iron fencing.  Once that is done, the inside of the pond will be painted.  Finally, the concrete walkways surrounding the pond will be taken out and re-poured to get an even walking surface.  And then the fish get to come home!  The work is expected to be completed in mid-September.
