The City of Silvis, Ill. needed its water tower repainted this year.
Instead of getting a basic paint job, officials decided to spend a little extra money and have it painted to look like a golf ball sitting on a tee.
The hope was to get a little recognition during the annual John Deere Classic golf tournament, held at the TPC at Deere Run in Silvis.
Well, not only did they get that recognition, they are now in the running for "Tank of the Year" on the TNEMEC.com website.
Silvis is in the running with dozens of other cities across the country.
At the time this story was written, Silvis was in the lead with over 20% of the vote.
The company says the top 12 water towers will be considered finalists and will appear in a 2014 calendar.
They say they will pick the official winner from the finalists and announce it in early November.
