VICTORIA — As the city of Victoria gets ready for a new water tower and water system upgrades, a contest to submit a new logo to potentially be placed on the new tower is set to end Friday.
“It is open to anybody,” said Mary Pfeifer, city clerk. “We thought it would be fun to get some different ideas, some new ideas.”
“The tower is a spherical tower and examples can be seen by looking online,” the contest announcement said. “The winning design will be awarded a $50 Visa gift card.”
“I think what they are looking at is something that will go around the top part,” Pfeifer said.
If a new logo is chosen to be put on the tower, it will be sure to become quickly associated with the city of Victoria as it will be highly visible.
“People driving into town will see the water tower and see it from the interstate,” Pfeifer said.
The city council has retained the right to reject all designs.
The new 150,000-gallon water tower is part of a $4.5 million project that will replace a significant portion of the Victoria water system.
Submission can be made in person to the Victoria City Hall or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
