Even if Bossier City's new water tower isn't voted 'Tank of the Year,' it's created a lot of civic pride for residents. While I'm a Bossier Parish resident, not an official Bossier City girl, I have personally enjoyed driving by the water tower over the summer to see the progress. It's a fitting design for a water tower in a town that houses Barksdale Air Force Base. Check out the view of the top of the tower courtesy of the City of Bossier City featuring the iconic B-52 Bomber.

So, if you're like me, and seeing the patriotic design on Bossier's new water tower gives you a dose of pride for your hometown, VOTE! Yes, vote, she said. No, not in the upcoming presidential election, but in the 'Tank of the Year' contest from Tnemec Company, Inc. At the time of posting, our water tower is in the lead! Make sure to cast your vote here. Voting is open through October 16, 2020, and the People's Choice will be announced on October 19th and the Tank of the Year winner will be announced on October 23, 2020. The winner and eleven runners up will be featured in Tnemec's annual water tank calendar. Find out more about the contest in their promotional video included below. I'd love to see Bossier City come out on top in this! I think the more we can shine a light on the positives in our area, the more likely people will be to create more 'positives!'
