Fully assembled rain barrels will be available to order by the City of Georgetown during the Festival of the Horse festivities.

The rain barrels will be available at a significantly discounted price, said city council member Tammy Lusby-Mitchell.

To order:

—Proof of residence within the Georgetown city limits such as a utility bill or driver’s license will be needed to complete an application.

—Initial cost will be $71.25, which can be paid by check, money order or cash.

“The total cost of your rain barrel will be $35.62 (after the refund), and the average price of a new rain barrel is anywhere from $100-$300,” said Lusby-Mitchell.
