City Commission Approves Pursuing Public Art Program
02/10/2010

Amarillo has its quarter horses, Chicago has its cows, but soon Liberal could have its Dorothy's. At Tuesday night's Liberal City Commission meeting, commissioners approved staff to continue negotiations with LafondFX for the creation of molds in the likeness of Dorothy. These molds would be used to create statues of Dorothy that would be placed around the city. The statues would be 5 feet tall and would be bronze in color. This would be part of the city's Public Art and branding campaign. With Liberal be officially proclaimed the home of Dorothy by Governor John Carlin in the early 1980's, these statues would enhance that image. The creation of the 2 different molds is not to exceed $26,000.00, with the likenesses also subject to the commissions approval. Once the molds are approved, the statues would be poured by an ornamental statuary company out of Yoder Kansas. In other action items the commission approved the engineering for the Brown Well Project and the engineering for a bike/pedestrian path on the east side of Kansas Avenue starting at 15th street going north to Tucker road. Commissioners also approved a replat of the Century Heights Addition,and approved the purchase of a printer for the Engineering Department. The Liberal City Commission will next meet on February 23, 2010.
