The Winamac Town Board discussed the funds going toward the Winamac Municipal Pool and how much money is being sunk into the deteriorating structure.
Town Manager Jim Conner said the maintenance on the 50-year pool is costly and the board wanted the opinion of town residents on what to do about the pool.
“We were trying to get a feel for the townspeople whether they wanted to possibly look at getting a bond to finance a new one and the people who were there were in favor of that,” stated Conner. “At this point, we’re going to try and get some estimates on what it would take to build a new pool.”
Conner stressed that there are several steps the town will need to complete before a decision is made to build a new pool.
