Dolling Up Lake City’s ‘Poop Plant’

"These are the real workers at the plant," said Allen Dodge at his shop in Coeur d'Alene recently about the welded steel sculptures he created for display at the wastewater treatment plant in Coeur d'Alene. Dodge made the sculptures in the shape of organisms including stalked ciliate, filamentous bacteria and nematode. The artwork will be installed in July. (Kathy Plonka SR photo)

Question: Die-hard City Hall critic Sharon Culbreth dissed the public art at the "poop plant" in May during a seminar. The "poop plant," of course, is now very public as a result of the new infrastructure into the future Education Corridor. Do you see a public good in spending public money to doll up a "poop plant"?
