City commissioners have agreed to apply for a grant to refurbish The Maids of the Mist fountain in St. Joseph.

ST. JOSEPH — It’s been 46 years since her last facelift.

And fountains such as Maids of the Mist on the bluff in St. Joseph should receive an overhaul about every 30 years, according to Greg Grothous, deputy director of parks and grounds for the city of St. Joseph.
