Concourse fountains keep sponging up funds 

It’s going to cost another $100,000 – on top of $1.1 million – to get the four fountains at the Golden Gate Concourse fluid again.

The concourse authority was supposed to hear about why the Concord company that’s also done work on the $22 million renovation for the Palace of Fine Arts needs more money, but the meeting was canceled because the agenda wasn’t posted in time. It hasn’t been rescheduled.

Board member John Rizzo, who originally thought the $1.1 million tab could have been cheaper, said he plans to ask for an audit on the company’s fountain work whenever concourse authority meeting is rescheduled.

He also said he plans to voice opposition Rec and Park’s decision to put a Segway concession stand behind the bandshell because it’s not safe to have them riding with pedestrians.

It’s why they were banned in 2002 but were later given the green light for Golden Gate Park.
