Update on Pioneer Mike

The mold created from the original Pioneer Mike statue in Storm Lakes, Iowa, has been completed and is now back in Oregon. The next step is having the artist work with the foundry to cast the new pieces. Each mold piece will be cast separately then welded together. In addition, Public Works staff will prepare the fountain base for the heavier weight of the new statue and figure out what to do with the old statue.  Unfortunately, the foundry is extremely busy at this point and it could be several months before they even start on our project. It looks like best case scenario we are still a few months from actually getting the statue completed.
