City of Merritt looking to place wood carving of the late Ty Pozzobon in Central Park.
Following a conversation with his family, Mayor Neil Menard has made an official notice of motion to have the wood carving of the late bull rider, that was commissioned by the Merritt and District Chamber of Commerce following last year's Logger Sports Show, placed at Central Park.
"It's going to be a full-sized statue of Ty, and a bull. And, I would like the city to be involved in locating it at Central Park. And, that we be responsible for putting in a proper foundation, and a security fence."
The statue is being created by professional wood carver Marina Cole, and is expected to be revealed during the 2018 Logger Sports Show in September.
