The double-drinking fountain on East Main Street, at the entrance of the , was removed soon after
At this point, the town doesn't have any plans on replacing it immediately, said Los Gatos Parks and Public Works Director Todd Capurso, whose department was listed as the responsible party.
He said buying a new fountain is in the range of $4,000 to $5,000 and the town doesn't have the immediate resources available to put a new one in the old spot.
However, he said, there's another drinking fountain about 50 to 100 feet away at the bottom of the trail entrance for those needing water.
Capurso said the town hopes to replace the fountain in the same spot in either July or August.
Moving the fountain away from the sidewalk is problematic due to all the underground water and sewer utilities leading up to that location, Capurso said.
"That's the only location unless we have to rip off sidewalks and I don't think we want to do that. Our plan is to either replace it at the same location or not replace it," he said.
