MT. PLEASANT MUNICIPAL UTILITIES TOOK TO SOCIAL MEDIA TODAY TO GIVE AN UPDATE REGARDING THE DOWNTOWN WATER TOWER RENOVATION PROJECT.  ACCORDING TO THE POST, UTILITY CONTRACTORS ARE WORKING TO COMPLETE THE REMAINING SURFACE CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE REPAIRS.  DUE TO UNFAVORABLE WEATHER CONDITIONS AND UNANTICIPATED SIGNIFICANT SURFACE RUST ON TOP OF THE TOWER, WORK HAS PROGRESSED SLOWER THAN EXPECTED.  DUE TO THESE FACTORS AND THE EXTENDED WEATHER FORECAST, IT WILL BE NECESSARY TO POSTPONE PAINTING THE EXTERIOR OF THE TOWER UNTIL SPRING.  THIS WILL ENSURE THAT THE NEW PAINT BEING APPLIED DOES NOT FAIL PREMATURELY.  THE PARKING AREAS WILL BE REPOPENED ON SATURDAY FOR PUBLIC PARKING.
