Let’s clean up water fountain to serve the community

I agree that the water fountain is an eyesore. but rather than have it removed, why not ask for it to be cleaned and maintained? (“Who will clean up ugly blight,” May 30). Many years ago my mother, Ann Pettit, had Keywest Realty in what is now May Kitchen + Bar, and she worked with the Kiwanis to have a water fountain for people and dogs installed.

Wouldn’t it be lovely if May Kitchen would have the water turned on and the Red Bicycle put out a receptacle for cigarette butts, and both helped with the clean-up and maintenance? Having a water fountain in town is so nice for people and dogs, especially in the hot summer months.
