KANSAS CITY MEYER CIRCLE FOUNTAIN STAYS LOSING DESPITE $1-MILLION FIX!!!
Sadly, the fix didn't take and now local big money donors are on the hook for even more cash.
Here's the start of the story . . .
Fox4: Kansas City’s 94-year-old Meyer Circle Fountain out of commission — again
A few more deets:
Less than two years after a $1 million makeover, the Meyer Circle Seahorse Fountain is once again in need of a repair job . . .
In 2017, neighborhood groups and private foundations raised just over $1 million to completely renovate the 94-year-old fountain. Prior to that, the fountain had been dry and dormant since 2015.
Kansas City Parks and Recreation officials tell FOX4 they first noticed a large chunk of the fountain’s lower bowl, which included a sculpture of a lion’s face, had crumbled into the basin floor.
City officials do not suspect vandalism and expect private foundations to, once again, cover the cost of repairs. But unfortunately, the city doesn’t anticipate the Meyer Circle Fountain to be functional in time for the city’s "Fountain Day" on April 16.
