Visitor to the council meeting was David Griesmyer. He is the owner of DG Welding and Design. He wants something to showcase some of the beauty here and provided a drawing and two mock ups of the finished project for council members to look at. His proposal is that he make this sculpture and gift it to the Village of Malta. The finished sculpture will be a total of 18-feet tall, 13 feet to the top of the head, and five more feet to the top of the antlers. The body would be solid.

Someone spoke up and said that is the buck he has been looking for. Griesmyer said he came up with the buck because this is the hunting capital of Ohio and believes this would help bring tourism. It will be big, but extremely beautiful. It will be a centerpiece for Malta. He intends to gift the sculpture and already has other companies willing to help with the installation. The base will have signage on all four sides welcoming people to Malta. The exact verbiage will be decided by council. Several other people have already gotten on board to help with the other costs. He just secured the materials to start work on the project.
