Email

GRAND FORKS (AP) -- The Grand Forks City Council has unanimously approved a bid to demolish the city's 77-year-old "Smiley" water tower.

The old tower with a painted smile and a wink will come down this fall, at a cost of around $62,000.

The council also approved a contract for "Smiley Jr.," which involves painting smiley faces on another water tower for about $13,000.

The plan was approved at the council's Monday meeting without discussion.
