Letter to the editor: Water tower should have buffalo on both sides of it
Regarding naming the water tower: I would like to mention that Jamestown needs to improve its image and by painting the new water tower white with a brown buffalo on both sides it will help it. It will attract tourists to the city and promote businesses to move here.
The thought of having a blue jay or just the name of the city won’t attract both aspects to the city. The idea of having a buffalo painted on the water tower is right since it is historically significant and a sound idea, because they were here first before Jamestown was ever thought of. Also, the city is named the Buffalo City, and we have live buffalo.
These examples clearly show that we need a symbol to promote the city, and it makes sense. The people of Jamestown, tell City Hall that a picture of a buffalo on the new water tower will attract people.
