Sunday (08.14) marked the end of the season at the Lions Field municipal swimming pool in Charles City.
This week, the City hopes to start getting answers as to the pool’s future after contracting with JEO Consulting for a feasibility study of the pool. Parks and Rec Director Tyler Mitchell says JEO will come in for Task 1 of the study after his staff completes a “leak test,” which they were scheduled to start Monday.
Mitchell says Task 2 of the study will then evaluate the possibility of building a new pool, taking into account cost and location among other factors. He says JEO will make recommendations after each task is completed and then the City will weigh all their options.
Mitchell says the pool feasibility study is expected to be completed by this February or March.
