The Heritage Park Fountain is scheduled to reopen today after having been shut down about a week for emergency repairs.
Jonathon Turlove, interim maintenance manager for the city, said the fountain’s air compressor failed. The compressor, which was an original part of the fountain at its debut in 1996, shoots the fountain’s jets of water into the air. The repair cost about $1,500, he said.
The popular fountain is normally closed Wednesdays, but will open today because it has been shut down for several days, according to a news release. It will be open from 9 a.m.-noon, 1:30 to 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. It will then assume its regular Thursday to Tuesday firstname.lastname@example.org
