Jackson City Council Picks Water Tower Design

Posted: Updated:
(WLNS) - It took four months and more than 15 votes, amendments and other wrangling but the Jackson City Council has settled on a design for a water tower.

According to Will Forgrave at our media partner MLive, the redesign came about after residents expressed displeasure over a simple black text design had been agreed upon by councilmembers.

Council voted to rescind their original design and pick the new design - which features "JACKSON" with crosshatches representing I-94 and US 127 on the "O" - via a 5-2 vote Tuesday. Councilwoman Arlene Robinson, 1st Ward, and Andrew Frounfelker, 5th Ward, voted "no" on the new design, which is likely going to cost $19,400, or $5,400 more than the original design picked by council.

The final pricetag is being debated now with the contractor charged with painting the double-sided designs on two city water towers.
