whether the city or county
continues to operate it.
Kirchner said that she has
enough money remaining
from last year to open the pool
for one month this summer,
likely in early June. And by
that time, she indicated, it’s

specifying where money
would come from if the city
takes over the pool, said that

that costs could be lower, as
the city would assume respon-
sibility for items including
maintenance, and water and
“It’s the only thing out
here,” he said of the pool, not-
ing that it’s worth saving.
County commissioners have
indicated money is tight, but
the mayor said that if the
county would help fund it one
more year, that the city could
