In addition to the traditional adornments installed this week, Mineral Wells will soon have a brand new downtown display.
City workers began hanging familiar decorations on utility poles around town earlier this week.
“Those are the decorations that belong to the Merchants Association,” said City Manager Lance Howerton.
This year’s city budget alloted resources in the general fund for new city-owned decorations, which Howerton said will be displayed alongside the existing ornamentation.
He said Tuesday morning he expected delivery of the items later in the day.
“The decorations shipped on [Nov.] 21st and hopefully we will ... have those installed by the end of the week,” he said.
He said the adornments will be prominently displayed downtown.
“They’re garland with wreaths that will go over the highway,” he said, explaining each will be “suspended above North Oak [Avenue] in four different sites in the downtown area.”
