Square project has low bidder

(Continued)

Somerset —

Currently, there is no access to the square; in other words, jaywalking is the only way to get across the street to the square area.
Also, the fountain’s electrical wiring will be upgraded. The existing fountain is hooked to the courthouse electrical system and operation of the fountain often disrupts computers in the various offices. 
Bourne has indicated the design of Fountain Square will complement the courtyard at Pulaski Court of Justice.
Other notable changes in the renovated Fountain Square area will be relocation of the statue of John Sherman Cooper. The statue, now facing west, will look south toward First and Farmers National Bank.
Bourne hopes to begin demolition in December, and she said their target completion date is April 1, 2013,  just in time for the first Somernites Cruise of the 2013 season.
