Behind the dais where the Bartow City Commission sits there will be a logo and the words “City of Bartow” on the wall.
After considering at the Aug. 20 meeting a mural would cost about $3,100 to put behind the dais, commissioners put off the subject for another two weeks – and for absent Commissioner Adrian Jackson to return – to decide what to do about it. Commissioners were in a 2-2 tie on what to do on the back wall, with the price taking in some concern. The full work included the city sign and the words that would be raised up from the wall and a painting showing part of the downtown area that included the Polk County History Center. The painting would cost $2,053 and the logo’s price is $867.50. With the tax, the total price was more than $3,100.
