Public opinion split on NH Statehouse fountain

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — Both supporters and opponents of a plan to put a fountain in front of the New Hampshire Statehouse said the Concord City Council should take a brave stand.

The Concord Monitor reports public opinion was split among 15 people who spoke at Monday's public hearing about the proposal.

Some told councilors to act bravely and accept a project that would add value to the downtown.

But others said it belongs in a park, away from the Statehouse, and urged councilors to be courageous in rejecting it.

The fountain could cost as much as $270,000, but the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce said it will pay for the fountain with donations and a tax credit award.

The council delayed its vote until July 23 after tax credit awards are chosen.
