ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The city of Ann Arbor will include public art in its overhaul of a 500,000-gallon steel water tower.

The Ann Arbor News reports (https://bit.ly/1B4xUI1 ) the addition of art to the tower near Manchester Road will follow a recoating project that’s expected to cost between $500,000 and $600,000. The art will cost another $30,000 to $60,000. The project is tentatively planned for next summer or fall and will be funded by the water supply system.

City officials say the existing coating is corroding and re-coating is needed to continue using the water tank. The city council approved a $128,000 contract for professional engineering services for the project last week.

The Public Art Commission says the idea to include art is preliminary but the project is expected to include some sort of painting.
