As one of the hottest summers in memory heads towards September, City Council tonight will discuss fixing or replacing the Thompson Park Pool. Lawmakers have been on record saying they want to reopen the pool, which was closed in 2014 due to cost of operation and maintenance and mechanical issues.
It's expensive, but so is everything and if their decision is to reopen it, then spend the money and make it something to last and be enjoyed for years to come.
In 2015, Council rejected a staff recommendation to demolish the pool.
Tonights discussion will stall on the issue of money and there is no one who will contribute to a new pool.
Bottom line.....If Council wants it, get out the checkbook. http://www.wwnytv.com/news/local/City-Looks-To-Fix-Up-and-Reopen--389432032.html
