To the Editor:
My husband and I believe that the windmill and the water tower should be rebuilt regardless of the $200,000 cost. They are a symbol of Brownwood Square, e.g , Statute of Library, or a cross on a church steeple. What’s next — are they going to remove the cows from the entrance because they are not useful?
We do believe that the tower and windmill should be rebuilt with pressure-treated wood to help preserve them for a longer period of time. Since both were originally built with material that was not meant for outside exposure, although only God knows why, we should have been prepared to replace them.
