Public Meeting Aug. 25 on Fountain City Lake Improvements

Posted: 08/11/2015
Fountain City LakeOn Tuesday, Aug. 25, Mayor Madeline Rogero will join City Council representatives and City staff to present a public update on plans for long-term improvements to Fountain City Lake. The meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. in the Lions Club Building located at Fountain City Park, 5345 N. Broadway.

The 125-year-old manmade lake has for many decades suffered from excess algae growth and poor water circulation.

Mayor Rogero and City Council included $250,000 for improvements in the 2014-15 budget, and work began last fall with the repair of a leak in the earthen berm that surrounds the lake. At this meeting, City Engineering staff and consultants will talk about the next phases in the project and the timeline for completion.

Anyone needing a disability accommodation to attend the meeting should contact the City's ADA Coordinator, Stephanie Cook, at or 865-215-2034.
