VIDEO: The Busted Plug sculpture - one of city’s most known landmarks - still hasn’t been relocated. The 40-foot metal fire hydrant was created by well known Columbia artist, Blue Sky, but was taken down with little indication on where it would be put next. In February of last year, the city of Columbia commissioned a construction company called McClam & Associates to remove the sculpture off Taylor Street and keep it in storage until the city decided what they were going to do with it. “We aren’t being paid to leave it on our property, we are just allowing the city to leave it here until they move it. I haven’t been told where they will put it, but I am told they will be relocating it,” said Rusty McClam, the president of the company.
