A towering sight took shape in Brandon last week.

A new water tower was put in place near the intersection of Front Street and Nelson Avenue.


It will be painted a light cream color with dark red and brown accents. It will also include, of course, the name of the city, styled in the same font as the sign that welcomes visitors into town.

The old water tower will be dismantled and hauled away.
