Work should be underway soon to fix the damages to the city’s reflecting pool memorial, located near the Pedcor headquarters and across the street from The Palladium.
The Carmel Redevelopment Commission had previously suggested taking more than $600,000 from the city’s rainy day fund to fix the damaged concrete, but that was voted down by the Carmel City Council.
City councilors said it was because the CRC could use its own money to pay for repairs.
After settling a lawsuit, the CRC decided to use its money to approve $460,500 with the Smock Fansler Corporation. The council immediately approved the contract unanimously without any concern.
CRC Director Corrie Meyer said she knows people are eagerly anticipating the repairs and is happy to report that construction should begin soon.
“Work should be complete early summer,” she said.
