Members of the Plymouth City Commission authorized the agreement for funding of the new fountain in Kellogg Park at their March 2 meeting.
The grant agreement between the city and the Wilcox Foundation is for the amount of $1,170,449.10 for the construction and installation of the new fountain. Commissioners also authorized the expense of an additional $30,000 for the fountain project.
This newly approved funding is in addition to the previous authorization of $20,000 in funding from the Downtown Development Authority bringing the city contribution for the fountain to $50,000.
Construction on the new fountain is expected to begin in late June of this year, officials said.
Commissioners also approved upgrades to the geothermal computer control system at the Plymouth Cultural Center. The low bid of $34,892 from Automated Energy System of Madison Heights was approved. The system upgrades are expected to take place this May.
In addition, commissioners awarded Plymouth Trading Post the contract for the purchase of soccer equipment for the 2019-2020 fiscal year and approved a bid from B Clean Air Maintenance to perform air duct cleaning at both Plymouth City Hall and the Department of Municipal Services.
Emergency repairs to the city water system stemming from the water main break in December near Hamilton and Red Ryder were also approved by the commissioners before they went into closed session to discuss a legal matter.
