TOMAHAWK – The City of Tomahawk Board of Public Works this week discussed color scheme ideas for the city’s water tower, which is slated to be repainted this year as part of routine maintenance.
The tower is located off E. Birchwood Ave., just north of Kwik Trip.
Although a date for the repainting project isn’t currently set, the board briefly mulled color options during its meeting at City Hall on Tuesday, Jan. 31 because the paint order must be placed soon.
An early frontrunner for the main color of the tower is navy blue.
During his report to the board, Water Department Leadperson Glen Hanna explained that a darker color would hide debris buildup better than the current shade of light blue, meaning the tower would not have to be cleaned as often.
Navy blue would also reflect the School District of Tomahawk’s main color. To further match Hatchet colors, adding a yellow stripe around the tower with the name of the city in navy blue was suggested.
Because the painting of the water tower was not an agenda item, no action was taken.
