The city of Wapakoneta is trying to decide what it wants to do with a brick structure that was constructed in the parking lot of Image Master’s Print and Copy Center on 126 E. Auglaize St. during the East Auglaize Street Project, which was completed in 2013.

The structure covers up the base of an old sign post that was taken down years ago after a company went out of business.

Superintendent of Engineering and Zoning Mary Ruck said the brick pedestal is currently serving its purpose, and it’s up to the city to decide if they want to rehabilitate it in any way.

“As far as I’m concerned, we’re finished there” Ruck said. “If city council or the city as a whole decides to further enhance it with a planter, statue or plaque, I think that would be wonderful.”
