KOOSKIA / KAMIAH Freedom Northwest Credit Union (FNWCU) in cooperation with the City of Kamiah and the City of Kooskia is constructing Kids’ Splash Fountain sites at each city park.
FNWCU has been working with the City of Kamiah, the City of Kooskia, and Idaho Stage Construction (as project manager) on the fountains for the last few months. The fountains each have seven ground sprayers and a center statue located on a 36-foot circular splash pad at the city parks. Visitors will enjoy in-ground water-play elements that spray and mist in different directions and heights. FNWCU has donated funding for the fountains, while the cities will be doing the infrastructure for the water and drainage.
“Part of our commitment is to give back to our home communities,” said FNWCU Board Chairman Doug Warrington.
FNWCU CEO Scott Garrett added, “By effective management of our balance sheet and credit union expansion, we can support these worthy efforts while still growing our members’ capital at a faster pace than the competition and offering ultra-competitive financial solutions.”
The Kooskia Splash Fountain should be completed by summer 2017 and the Kamiah Splash Fountain is scheduled for completion by the following year.
