LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - A geyser-like fountain in front of the courthouse complex in Lexington has been shut off for the last 18 months and likely will be offline for another year because repairs are needed to bring it up to code.

Fayette County Director of Facilities and Fleet Management Jamshid Baradaran says the entire fountain, including the lighting, pumps and the electrical system, need to be inspected and brought up to code before the fountain becomes operational again.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reported (https://bit.ly/1qyRi9s ) the 12-year-old electrical system has worn down because of frequent use.

Baradaran says he wants to make sure there is clear separation between the running water and the electrical system. Baradaran says a total revamp of the fountain will ensure that it is safe and it will last..
