Pool Manager Rhonda P’Pool said, “We’re not anticipating any problems. The surge tank was set up according to the original blueprints. We have the chemicals here, so knock on wood, we are planning to open on Wednesday.”
County Judge/Executive Stan Humphries said that patching holes with grout cost the county $1,200 while placing a sealer on the pool’s walls and floor cost approximately $3,000. He placed the surge tank repair in the “$3,000 range” though called the estimates rough.
“We hope that the community understands the lag and why we were unable to open,” said Humphries. “We hope that they will help with contributions and pool attendance to offset the cost of getting the American Legion Pool open this time,” said Humphries.
P’Pool said that the normal 10-week pool season would be halved due to the long process of repairs. She said that to reflect the shortening of the season, pool pass costs would also be halved, from $200 to $100 for adults, and from $100 to $50 for single adults and students. She said that daily admission prices would remain the same at $4.
