On Monday night (May 10), KING5.com did a video report on the story (which we first reported May 1st) about the Burien library’s call for a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the historic George Tsutakawa fountain “Rain Fountain No.2,” which was removed last year after it was assessed as potentially being damaged.

The RFP calls for the fountain to be re-installed inside the library, with a deadline for proposals of May 17.

Here’s how KING5 treated this story (link here):

With King County facing a $60 million budget shortfall, why is the King County Library System spending thousands of dollars on a fountain? The fountain was moved from the old Burien Library to the new library, and now it will be moved again.

    I still think the library system should give it to the city on condition it’s re-installed at it’s old library location.

    I don’t understand… why was it moved to begin with? Seems to me it’s old home in the old Library/new community center was perfect… Nobody got sprayed on windy days! I must agree with Ian on this one

    It belongs to King County LS not Burien. They could move it wherever they want really.
