Parks Committee Considering Slide to Replace 30 Year Old Diving Board at City PoolJuly 18th, 2012 by Mandy Moss
The financial burden of replacing the board was reported to be very costly due to the new foundation needed to install a board. There is also fear of creating more issues and causing further damage during the process of breaking up the old concrete.
Money saving options were presented, such as using a half-meter diving board, which would be lower to the ground, or doing away with the board all together and replacing it with a different feature, such as a slide, that does not have to be set as deeply in concrete.
“I would like to ask you to be very careful about this decision, because I’ve been out there and I’ve seen a lot of kids diving, and doing back flips…” “Maybe ask a lot of people.” – Mayor Maxwell
The Committee decided to research all available options and report back at a later date.
