Fountain rebirth

COFFS HARBOUR'S mist fountain, which has been removed from City Square, will be stored and possibly re-used in another location and another form, a council spokes- woman said.

A bubbler and water bottle refilling station, like the one already in use in Brelsford Park, will be installed in City Square as part of the city's Economic Development Unit program to have more of these around the city centre. This is expected to please growers' market stallholders and patrons.

The bubbler will take advantage of an existing drain and surrounding seating will be retained.

The mist fountain, with its tall stainless-steel pillars and twinkling lights, has been a feature of the city centre since the redevelopment of the City Centre Mall about 10 years ago, but the council spokeswoman said they had received lots of complaints about people getting mist on them and it did not work a lot of the time.
