Courtesy of a joint effort between the city of Seymour and the Seymour Community Development
Association (SCDA), the city's downtown business district should be beautiful this spring, summer and fall with fresh-growing flowers.
Last Thursday at the regular meeting of the Seymour Board of Aldermen, Wendy Pearson of the SCDA spoke to city officials about flowers located on large pots at the four corners of the square, as well as flowers growing in the Jim & Becky Sharon
Memorial Garden at the entrance to the square from the north at the triangle just south of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad tracks.
"We want to take care of them," Pearson told the aldermen. "That's something we're very willing to do for the community."
But after discussion, it was determined that the SCDA will be in charge of buying and planting the flowers, then the city will water them daily.
Pearson was empowered by the city board to purchase flowers for the eight large pots on the fourth corners of the Seymour Downtown Park. In addition, she'll also buy flowers for the Sharon garden just north of the Family Dollar store.
She and SCDA members will plant them.
After that, the city will water them.
