The Winamac Town Pool will not be open this summer.
Winamac Town Manager Jim Conner said the maintenance cost to keep the existing pool up and running is too costly. The town is pursuing options to get the pool up and running in 2015.
Conner added that Umbaugh and Associates went over some funding options with the Winamac Town Board Monday night in order to fund the rehabilitation cost.
Several residents were in attendance at the board’s meeting to voice their opinion about the future of the Winamac Town Pool.
“Most of them were in favor of proceeding with rehabbing the pool even if it was going to cost five or six hundred-thousand dollars to do it and take a tax bond out to finance it. There will be more on that coming up in future meetings I’m sure,” stated Conner.
