GENESEO — Geneseo is getting a new fountain installed this week.
According to a press release from Geneseo’s Major Hatheway, Tuesday afternoon Moorland studios and the firm that will put the fountain in place will be here to prep the site.
“The basin is scheduled to be delivered Wednesday morning, no time specified as yet,” said Hatheway. “Plans are to have a crane remove the damaged basin, set the new basin, assemble the other pieces of the fountain, load the original basin on the flat bed and send it off to Barre VT for re-purposing.”
Geneseo has seen not one but two separate trucks hit their fountain. The beloved bronze bear, Emmeline, and the Geneseo community have been awaiting the new fountain for some time.
