In any case, if it's anything like the current fountain they they won't turn it on if they expect a freeze shortly after.  Kind of like tending to a garden.   . . .  Besides the only person in the universe who knows the secret code to get it running will probably get sick and be unable to start it until mid August.   In any case, check out the mushroom thing at Billy Taylor park for inspiration.
