Starting this Friday, Nov. 6, the city will close the parking stalls, sidewalk and park area around the water tower reservoir in the northeast corner of Comeford Park. These actions are being taken for safety reasons in preparation for repair work next week on the reservoir’s catwalk.
The demolition work, which will remove severely corroded sections of the catwalk, is scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, Nov. 9 and 10. The repair work, which will replace them with new steel plating, is scheduled for Wednesday through Friday, Nov. 11 through 13. The play area will be closed during the demolition work. The dates and/or duration of the work could change depending on wind or other hazardous weather conditions.
“The good news is this work will allow the city to bring back the cherished tradition of lighting the beloved water tower for the Christmas holidays,” Mayor Jon Nehring said.
We appreciate your patience and look forward to lighting the water tower once again.
