Update on the Daniel Miller Fountain repairs
Millersburg Borough recently executed a contract with Houck Contracting to repair the Daniel Miller Fountain, which sustained vehicle damage early Thanksgiving morning. Disassembled the Fountain on May 26. The damaged pieces were removed and a stone company in Barre, Vt. will manufacture new pieces. The stone for the fountain originally came from that community. Later this summer, (probably July or August) a second street closure and detour will be necessary to reassemble the fountain.
For your own safety, please do not enter the work site.
We appreciate the community's patience while we restore this piece of Millersburg's history.
