Flaccid fountain display.
Peter Bigelow, HRM’s property manager, 490-6047.
A reader complains that the fountain in the Common no longer provides the vigourous and sustained performance that so thrilled her over the summer. “She’s right,” says Bigelow, who explains that as the autumn winds kick up, people using the nearby foot paths complain that the bigger stream gets blown onto them, and so the city dials it down. Don’t expect a fix until summer’s return.
