LANARK – Almost 20 years have gone by since Lanark’s water tower received a coat of paint, and the City Council wants to spruce things up a bit.

Aldermen are considering a project to paint the inside and outside of the tower, which still has its original coat of paint from 1999, at a cost of $300,000 to $500,000.

“It’d be full paint on the outside, and them updating a few of the inside components. There’s some valves that need replacement, some maintenance,” Alderman Brad Knutti said.

The project would take about 8 weeks, with work possibly starting in the fall or spring 2019, Knutti said at there meeting Feb. 6.

“It depends on bids and scheduling. It’s not out for bids yet. We’re working on the final presentation of options for the bid, and it should be out in the next few weeks.”

The council next meets at 7:30 p.m. Feb. 20 at Lanark City Hall, 111 S. Broad St.
