Columbia City officials tested out a large speaker made by Ultra Electronics last week, playing tunes throughout the downtown area. Columbia City Mayor Ryan Daniel said if purchased, the speaker could help city officials make announcements during downtown events such as Old Settlers Days and Autumn Art Festival. The speaker could also be used to play music during Christmas time. Pictured, Columbia City Electric Department Superintendent Shawn Lickey takes the speaker down from the roof of City Hall.
