City considers benches for square
City officials will decide whether to buy benches for Public Square after renovation work is complete in January, city officials said Tuesday.
Several civic and merchant associations have asked the city to place benches in the square.
Councilman Lewis C. Metzner said if city officials decide to buy benches, they should get the kind with arm rests so they are not comfortable for sleeping.
Metzner asked staff to see if students at the Career Studies Center could make the trash cans for the square.
