While on the Charlottesville downtown mall late last week (Thursday I believe) I snapped these photos of the four mall fountains. A crew was working on the fountain by Angelo's Jewelery Store, but I haven't seen any activity at the other three fountains in a while. A brick base was installed at the Central Place fountain about 7-10 days ago, but I haven't seen any work on that fountain since. I will be on the mall later today and will be sure to check out any progress being made.
Will these fountains be working in time to enjoy them for the several week between now and when they would be turned off for the winter? Or will 2009 be the year the fountains were dry?
