JACKSON, Mich. (AP) - A Michigan community’s selection of a water tower design that prompted some city council opposition and online backlash is getting another look.

The Jackson Citizen Patriot reports (https://bit.ly/1eEWLmF ) Del and Stephanie Belcher started a Facebook page titled “The Proposed Jackson Water Tower Is Super Lame” last week. The design features “JACKSON” in capital letters with “Founded 1829” underneath the name of the city.

Mayor Jason Smith says council members on Tuesday will debate other design options, some of which are by residents and were submitted to the Facebook page.

Council last week voted 4-2 in favor of the $14,000 design for two city water towers.

Council member Derek Dobies voted against the design and said it’s the “ugliest $14,000 design I have ever seen.”
