Leary -- Leary's new tallest structure went up Thursday.

A new 150, 000 gallon water tower was erected. A 400 ton crane put the ball on top to cap off the construction. The small town in Calhoun County has had problems with water pressure and quality.

 It's taken more than two years for Leary to build the new water tower, and the people are looking forward to better service. City Councilman Sed Jackson said "We have people complaining about water. Well, we will be able to give them better water supply, and offer a whole lot bigger supply with water pressure."

The new water tower is four times as big as the old tower, and should be in service in a month.
