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. Houck 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. Houck Contracting plans to reassemble the Fountain Oct. 24-26. This will require a street closure.
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.
