There will be no daisies on the new Nicholson water tank. That is the decision made by the Nicholson Water Authority at its March meeting.
The authority voted unanimously to paint a flag design on the tank with “Nicholson Water” under the flag and the word “Authority” going down the standpipe.
The authority had previously given the Nicholson City Council a chance to pay to have a city logo put on the new tower and the city council unanimously approved a design with daisies on it at a cost of $4,900. The authority didn’t approve this design.
The authority did not discuss the cost of the logo that was approved. However, at the March City Council meeting authority member Daniel Sailors said the cost to have the NWA name on the tank was included in the contract price the authority got for installing the tank. It is unclear if the flag design will cost the NWA extra or not.
NWA member Tully Westmoreland made a motion to use the flag instead of the daisies, but that motion died for lack of a second. After further discussion on the issue, Westmoreland made a second motion for the flag design, Sailors seconded the motion and all members agreed.
NWA member Walter Barnett made a motion to use standard type as the lettering style on the new water tank and to all members agreed.
