Workers were close to putting the finishing touches on the new 250,000-gallon water storage tank near the post office Wednesday despite having to work in sub-freezing temperatures. The tank will still need to be cleaned up and tested, and will receive a paint job. Mayor Tim Kent said the final appearance of the tank has drawn some controversy with more than one suggestion for its design. He said the construction contract calls for painting a bulldog design on opposing sides of the tank, representing the New Albany Bulldogs at the nearby high school. It has also been suggested that the tank be painted with a drawing of writer William Faulkner because of his birth here, and with a series of bicycle wheels to refer to Tanglefoot Trail. No decision has been made on the design, he said.
