They have been testing it and have a couple of minor things to fix/finish up on the lights, timer and drainage system. Should be good to go next week at the latest.

The lower tier lights aren't staying on due to a ground fault issue. Its not the fountain at all. Fixing the lower lights requires the fountain retaining pool to be empty. Not all these fancy technical items work as they should. We appreciate your patience while we fix your long awaited town fountain... God bless and thanks for your understanding.

1. Once again, the fountain is not broke. It is being turned on and off for testing and tweaking the lights. It is also being turned off and on manually right now until the timer is programmed. Eventually it will be turned on and off at a set time and set at different levels throughout the day to save cost.

2. The fountain does not have a leak. The water you see on Main Street is coming from the vault and is only temporary. There is a part currently being installed that stops that.

Went by there this morning off and this afternoon off and tonight around midnight off. Nice fountain guess it is true the county can't afford to run that million dollar water jug. Why have it when it never is on? Can't stand Girdler but maybe he was right should of put a intersection down the middle of it

I see the clueless, nuts and disagree button (CJ). If you don't like my comment get that million dollar brick master piece running. I like the old square better, it had character. This thing looks terrible when its turned off

I would rather turn on my water hose, spray it up in the air and have some Christmas lights around it in the grass.
