Just found this nugget on the Dispatch website. WTF
"Columbus is considering a refilling the Goodale Park pond this week even though a project to install a sculpture and fountain at its center remains unfinished....
McKnight said he broke the news to the leaders of Friends of Goodale Park on Friday that the city plans to refill the pond and put the fountain project on hold. They were unhappy, he said, so he agreed to meet with them again on Monday morning before making a final decision.
He said he appreciates what the Friends of Goodale Park are doing and wants to continue working with them. But he said the contractor’s delays have put everyone in a bad situation.
McKnight said the city has had to refund the $400 per two-hour rental fee to several wedding parties. Others took a partial refund and agreed to go ahead using a cloth backdrop to block the view of the construction site."
