WATERTOWN, New York (WWNY) - A citizens group is proposing a COVID-19 memorial for Watertown’s Thompson Park.

It would have a black granite base and circle of 4-inch thick cobalt blue glass resting on a concrete slab and surrounded by 4 benches.

The cost is $37,000. If city council goes along with it, the memorial could be built next summer.

The citizens group counts 87 Jefferson County people who have died from COVID-19.
